In Book Two of the Change and Cherish series, Emma Giesy is married and the mother of two. She's strong-willed and smart. Despite the odds, she and her husband branch off from a religious community of the 1850s to work and live independently in the remote coastal forest of the Washington Territory, surrounded by her husband's family rather than the influence of the autocratic German leader who has taken the main colony into Oregon.

When Emma finds herself alone, pregnant with her third child, and without the support of her family, she wonders if God has abandoned her. The choices she makes to survive have grave consequences for her family until, while she's falling, she reaches out to accept the hands of help. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Great historical fiction about the Washington and Oregon Teritories in 1856 and how the religioius comunities helped settle these states. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley Hanson | 1/29/2014

    " This is the second in the series I have read. I enjoyed the first book the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/26/2014

    " I was so glad to finally find this second book becuase I felt like I was left hanging after book one and still wanted to know more about the life of Emma Wagner Giesy. I loved it. She was brave and had to learn hard lessons. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 April | 1/25/2014

    " I'm about half-way through and I just can't keep going. I read the first book in the series, and it was okay. What made me want to read the entire series in the first place is that it is based on an actual woman, her family and her close-knit religious community and I find their story fascinating. However, I feel like I'm reading the first book all over again. There is nothing happy or bright in either the first or second books. Everything is dark, depressing and dismal. Also, I find the author's way of writing a little strange and sometimes hard to follow. And to top it off, I find the main character completely unlikeable. "

    " I really liked the book. It started with a surprise and then drew you into Emma's life. I will be starting the third book tonight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 1/7/2014

    " Second book in the series. Emma's beloved husband drowned in Wllapa Bay leaving her with 2 children and expecting a third. She refuses help of her in-laws and others in the colony because she fears her children will be taken away from her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/4/2014

    " I'm enjoying this series about the settling of the Aurora Colony, just 10 minutes from where I live. Though it's fiction, it is historical and the characters are real people. I love that it's written in first person, through the eyes of Emma, a "feminist" before her time. "

    " ehh...did not like it at all, kept on reading to try to figure out why Emma was so dang pig headed! I really like Jane Kirkpatrick books, but this one was not a good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loralee | 1/15/2011
