An Absence So Great by Jane Kirkpatrick - Blog Tour and Giveaway!

An Absence So Great
by Jane Kirkpatrick
touring Mar 29 - Apr 2

Did photography replace an absence in her life OR expose the truth of her heart's emptiness?

While growing in confidence as a photographer, eighteen-year-old Jessie Ann Gaebele's personal life is at a crossroads. Hoping she's put an unfortunate romantic longing behind her as "water under the bridge," she exiles herself to Milwaukee to operate photographic studios for those owners who have fallen ill with mercury poisoning.

Jessie gains footing in her dream to one day operate her own studio and soon finds herself in other Midwest towns, pursuing her profession.  But even a job she loves can't keep painful memories from seeping into her heart when the shadows of a forbidden love threaten to darken the portrait of her life.

Author bio:  Jane Kirkpatrick is an award-winning author of sixteen historical novels, including A Flickering Light, the first part of Jessie Gaebale’s story, and three nonfiction titles. Known for her unique insights into the exploration of community, family and faith of actual historical women, the Wisconsin native and her husband have called their ranch in Oregon home for the past 25 years.

Jane blogs at Words of Encouragement.  You can also connect with her on Facebook and Twitter.

An Absence So Great sounds like a book that I would really enjoy reading. The title alone makes me want to know who is absent and why and how the absence has made such a difference.

I would love to read this book. It bothers me that I made a poor decision that caused me alot of heartache. I took another route to replace that absence in my heart. This story would be one where I would find a personal connection and would like to see how it ends.

Thank you,
