Of all the things I left in Willapa, hope is what I missed the most. So begins this story of one woman's restoration from personal grief to the meaning of community.

Based on the life of German-American Emma Wagner Giesy, the only woman sent to the Oregon Territory in the 1850's to help found a communal society, award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick shows how landscape, relationships, spirituality, and artistry poignantly reflect a woman's desire to weave a unique and meaningful legacy from the threads of an ordinary life. While set in the historical past, it's a story for our own time answering the question: Can threads of an isolated life weave a legacy of purpose in community? Download and start listening now!

    " i liked the story, and the way it was written but not enough to go back and read the previous books in the series. mostly because women had very little power and the religious beliefs border on fanatism. "

    " This is a beautiful final book in the series of Emma's journey of getting a home and what she had to sacrifice to get it. At least it got a happy ending to the series to put a smile on my face... and in sadness. I enjoyed reading it and will read a new series at the end of the year, one of Jane Kirkpatrick's earlier ones. A beautiful moving read. "

    " Such a good book! It is the last book in the Change and Cherish series. These were true events in Oregon and Washington state from 1860 - 1883. Communal living. This tells the life of Emma Wagner Giesy. "

    " I stumbled upon this one by accident. I didn't like it as well as some of her other books, but the historical elements were interesting. I really didn't like the characters all that much, but just the way their society functioned kept my interest. "
