    1. Kirkpatrick brings us a story of one woman s restoration from personal grief to the meaning of community.

    2. I feel like after reading These is my words, no woman pioneer story is ever going to be as good, but this book had potential It just frustrated me, because I felt like it was underdeveloped, slow moving, and didn t get good in my opinion till the very end Worst part is, my library doesn t cary the next 3 books Now that is frustrating

    3. Jane Kirkpatrick s writing has a maturity about it that I appreciate These wagon women coming together in a time of heartache and trial was just marvelous A treacherous journey between grief and community will lead these new friends in an unexpected direction emotionally than they had anticipated I was grateful for getting to know them Not an easy light read but overall so worthwhile.

    4. Mazy s world is turned upside down when her husband, Jeremy, sells their land and decides, without talking to her first, that they are going to get West Mazy hates change and she is reluctant at first but she took a vow to love and honor her husband and that is what she will do, but she s not opposed to telling him ever five minutes that she s not happy We are taken through the journey of heading West and are introduced to numerous of characters, most of whom get on my last nerve I wanted to lik [...]

    5. I am surprised at the low reviews This is one of my favorite books I don t read many than once but I will this one I felt like it made me understand of how things were back then I figured everyone knew that going on a wagon trail and settling in the west was hard for everyone so I wasn t surprised about the hardships I completely enjoyed this book

    6. Interesting, but not riveting.I enjoyed this book It was a slow read, because it contained a LOT of detail Though it may not have been accurate in all repects, it gave me a feel for what if might have been like to strike out to the unknown and settle our land Imagineean water is not always available shelter from the elementseither extreme heat OR wicked storms running to the store when the wagon breaks down.abandon some of your most prized possesions by the side of the road in order to survive A [...]

    7. Series Kinship and Courage, book 1 All together in one Place by Jane KirkpatrickI like reading the stories of wagon trains going west and the hardships that forges such friendships among the people.This one had a lot of hardships and a disease the ravished the men til their were only women left to carry on You will enjoy how these women share the responsibilities and take that wagon train All the way to its destination.

    8. This is a good story that could ve been great The concept of eleven women traveling west together is an intriguing one, especially since there s evidence that it may have really happened My main argument with the book is that the women get pretty preachy at the end, speaking in pithy truisms about life and womanhood and family, and I found that hard to swallow I m gonna read the next two books, though, and see where some of the story lines go.

    9. I have never read a Jane Kirkpatrick before, but I am sure I will be reading of her books The book made me feel as though I was part of the wagon train that carried eleven strong women Through hardships, faith, and Perseverance, these women survived, bringing them closer together.

    10. This is the 1st in the Kinship and Courage series of inspirational historical fiction by Jane Kirkpatrick The idea for the story came from a copy of Ezra Meeker s Ox Team Days on the Oregon Trail and a short paragraph relates an encounter in 1852 of eleven wagons heading east, all driven by women, their men having died and been buried on the trail The author, after much research, has fleshed out what might have happened.The story begins in Wisconsin when Jeremy Bacon, without consulting with his [...]

    11. This is book one of the Kinship and Courage Series book 2 is No Eye Can See book 3 is What Once We Knew I was captivated during each one, hardly able to put them down I awoke early, stayed up late.Historically accurate, with vivid details, dynamic characters, deep themes, real conflict Because I read them one after another, what I ve written below applies to the trilogy, thus the length Kirkpatrick seems to say, Let me tell you about a woman who She finds a secret place in me and brings it to th [...]

    12. Whew I finally finished this, and it was a chore I found I often got distracted from the story by the author s style For example, sometimes the author uses unusual metaphors, but uses them in ways that draw your attention to them I d give almost anything to burn the thorns between us You ll be able to go on without holding the hammer over my head IDK why they strike me as weird but they do.Then sometimes I just don t get a comment at all, like on p 88 when Jeremy says, We haven t been beyond th [...]

    13. The central character, in love with her husband and their life on their farm, is suddenly confronted with the fact that he has sold the farm without consulting her and has committed them to going west in a covered wagon So, starting from the powerlessness of woman under the legal and social systems of the time, the story moves to a treacherous trip west in which women prove themselves to be resourceful and resilient Their ability to survive the dangers they encounter is largely through the sense [...]

    14. After perusing through some of the other reviews, I kind of questioned my 5 Star rating But I really liked it and can t wait to read the other books in the series I think there are two I also loved the Sarah Prine series, the first book is These Is My Words which is similar but set in the Southwest As far as reviewers complaining about detail and constant sorrow etc I think that s what I expected from a story about travelling to the West in a covered wagon If you read the Author s notes at the [...]

    15. I enjoyed this book At first all of the characters are hard to straighten out especially if you leave the book for a week like I did but just keep reading and it becomes easy to remember who is who The book is FULL of heartache It is unbelievable what these women go through Many of the people die, but the message of the book is great I really enjoyed the answers to their trials being from God The story is about a wagon caravan headed over the Oregon Trail in 1852 The stories behind the character [...]

    16. In All Together in One Place, this book launched the Kinship and Courage trilogy series Based on factual events on the Oregon Trail, this one is focused on Madison Mazy Bacon and her journey After two years of marriage, her husband informed her on their move to head west Along the way, she bonded with 11 other women who took the same journey from various states to head to California During their way, they each deal with loss and heartache in their own way, when their husbands or fianc s die from [...]

    17. When i first started reading this book a while back, I found it to be very slow moving and put it back down I decided to pick it up again a couple of weeks ago I was up to page 100 when i stopped It turned out it did engage me this time, and I became very interested in this true story of a group of women traveling west on their own after losing their husbands, brothers, etc to illness on the way They were true survivors The author painted a very vivid picture of the women and their journey and h [...]

    18. I guess you could call this historical fiction The author does a lot of research on the locations and what people wore, how they crossed the plains and tried to make it as real as possible The book has a strong Christian ideal of overcoming trials It will definately make you proud to be a woman and make you wonder how strong you could be under similar circumstances I will definately read the rest of the Kinship and Courage books to see what happens to the characters I like a particular part wher [...]

    19. For book club The author of this book never met a platitude she didn t like The plot and some of the characters do pull the reader through this unevenly paced story, but not without preaching the Biblical virtues of patience and acceptance and piety throughout, and if that is appealing to some, so be it this book was written for those who enjoy the heavy handed religious lessons For this reader, however, some of the dialogue was so treacly that it had to be eye skimmed.A note of caution the Kind [...]

    20. 1 in Kinship and Courage Series, wonderfully read by Aimee Lilly.Based on the true story of the turnaround women.A group of travellers heads west on the Oregon trail to fulfil their ambitions dreams However, tragedy strikes the survivors have to rely on each other to reach their journey s end.A wonderful, heart pulling story The characters become close friends as the story closes you want to know what happens to them 2 3

    21. I really enjoy Jane Kirkpatrick s books This Kinship and Courage was the first of her series there are 4 in this set that I read Almost all of her books are historical fiction and she does a lot of research to make her characters true She is also a Christian author, so there are references to God, prayer, etc, but it s not overkill or anything This particular series is based on the true story of a group of women who started out with their men to pioneer across the country and wound up on their o [...]

    22. I read this several years ago and for the life of me couldn t remember what it was called I haven t been able to get my hands on the rest of the series, but was told they re just as good Kirkpatrick is a great Christian author who really understands the ins and outs of women Even though this book takes place back in the pioneer days, the principles apply today It s such a great story of female unity, of empowerment, of surviving, of thriving even It reminded me that it is so much easier in life [...]

    23. Jane Kirkpatrick is a Christian author and by this I mean she bring her religion into the story Some than others I find this irritating, but this particular story was OK It is about a group of settlers moving west to Oregon California They were all unknown to each other before the trip During the trip illness decimated all the men and left the women to continue on alone Through personal strength and determination these women joined forces and formed bonds with each other that enabled them to wo [...]

    24. I picked this book up off the for sale shelf at the library knowing nothing about it or the author and I loved it I ve since learned that Jane Kirkpatrick is a christian author which explained some beautiful insights from the novel and that this is the first of a series of three books So now I m excited to read the other two Hmmm, wonder if they re on the for sale shelf at the library too Just a warning, this novel did start out a little slow for me, but once it got going, I couldn t put it down [...]

    25. I didn t enjoy this nearly as much as the first Kirkpatrick book I read a couple months ago Maybe after that one I had too high of expectations The main characters I felt invested in, but some of the other women I had a hard time remembering who was who and what made them distinct from each other There were also times that seemed so rosy amid tremendous trials, with the perspective of great faith and trust in the Almighty, that I wondered if pioneer peoples really would have felt thought this wa [...]

    26. This was another good book by Jane Kirkpatrick telling of the immigration of pioneers to the state of Oregon via California from Wisconsin The friendship and combined strength of the women in this book told the story of survival at all kinds of levels grief, celebration, leadership, companionship and friendship I really enjoyed Jane s reference Biblically to some of the scriptures mentioned Our foremothers were great believers and often it was their faith alone that helped them confront their ch [...]

    27. I highly recommend this book and the rest in the series It took me a few chapters to really get into I don t know if the size of the font was discouraging me or the fact that it was about a group of women losing their husbands, finances, sons and brothers along the trail Probably the latter I learned a lot about what the pioneers and such must have went through crossing the plains I thought a lot about my ancestors and their hardships Suzanne touched me most as I thought about my great grandfath [...]

    28. I really enjoyed reading this book about the pioneer women on they re way across the Oregon trail You feel the courage they had to have had to go on this trek across the wild plains Many of them endured sickness, death, sorrow and grief for the ones they lost on this trip to a better life for them and they re families.They re strength amazes me and the grueling push they must have had to keep going because they simply had no choice and they had the faith they were going to make it Many families [...]

    29. This is the best Fiction book I ve read all year It is based on a true story This book tells about the journey of families on the Oregon Trail, by the end of the book it is actually a story of 11 women includes one blind woman who reach their destination Shasta City with their families What was so neat about this book besides the valuable lessons within was the fact that many historical places that I know so well were mentioned Places like my hometown Shingletown the city of Shasta itself, Red B [...]

    30. This book is based on an incident where a group of women are headed back east after every man in their party has died The author takes that premise and fleshes out a story about each woman While some historical details were interesting like the scarcity of tacks in California , I mostly found the story to plod along I never felt like I really knew the characters, their motives or desires Not a bad story, but not stupendous either I was also disappointed because I thought I was reading a true sto [...]
