From the Back Cover: Eliza Spalding Warren was just a child when she was taken hostage by the Cayuse Indians during a massacre in 1847. Now a mother of two, Eliza faces a new kind of dislocation; her impulsive husband wants to make a new start in another territory, which will mean leaving her beloved home and her mother’s grave–and returning to the land of her captivity.
Haunted by memories and hounded by struggle, Eliza longs to know how her mother dealt with the trauma of their ordeal. As she searches the pages of her mother’s diary, Eliza is stunned to find that her own recollections tell only part of the story.
Based on true events, The Memory Weaver is New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick’s latest literary journey into the past, where threads of western landscapes, family, and faith weave a tapestry of hope inside every pioneering woman’s heart. Get swept up in this emotional story of the memories that entangle us and the healing that awaits us when we bravely unravel the threads of the past.
A historical novel is one thing, a historical novel based on a true story is something else all together. Eliza was held hostage by the Cayuse Indians during the massacre in 1847 in the Oregon Territory. Now she is married and her husband wants to leave where they are and travel to Oregon, now a state, for a new start. The problem is that is where all her memories are. Pain and loss, tragedy and triumph play our magnificently as we read the story of Eliza. And then there is the overall theme of faith. Ms. Kirkpatrick has done an incredible job of not only giving us details of life in the 1800’s she has given substantial life to one incredible woman. Yes, this is a wonderful story which is well worth reading, but it is the people who inhabit this book that make it really worth the read. Another winner really well done!
