Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Continuing the Tender Ties Historical Series, Every Fixed Star brings readers more of the dramatic, fictionalized account of Marie Dorion: the real-life woman who was the first mother to cross the Rocky Mountains and remain in the Northwest. In Book Two of the series, Marie learns the value of a tender heart, the faith of distant friends, and the act of holding life’s circumstances in open hands.

Following the family tragedy, the great battle for survival, and the test of faith described in A Name of Her Own, Marie relocates her family to the Pacific Northwest territory’s Okanogan settlement. The year is 1814 and, as is customary of her life out West, Marie faces constant challenges simply to keep her children clothed and fed.

Yet inside each challenge awaits a gift to be unwrapped. Countless times, Marie has proven herself a survivor. Incredibly, she must now endure further realizations of a woman’s fears: an abrupt ending to love, distance from friends, the disappearance of one child, the consequences of another’s poor choices.

Through it all, Marie is tempted to believe that she doesn’t deserve God’s love in the everyday places. When blessings arrive, she struggles to accept them, fearing they will be followed by more difficult challenges. But ultimately, the threads of past friendships and their prayers, a faithful love, and her own service to others all lead her to God’s gift of a full and abundant life.

Synopsis:

Following the events of A Name of Her Own, Marie Dorion relocates her family and continues her efforts to keep her children fed and clothed, a challenge that tests her faith and is further complicated by the abrupt end of a relationship and her son's disappearance. Original.

Synopsis:

Jane Kirkpatrick is the best-selling author of three non-fiction books, including A Simple Gift of Comfort, and eight novels, including the award-winning A Sweetness to the Soul, the acclaimed Kinship and Courage series: All Together in One Place, No Eye Can See, and What Once We Loved, and the best-selling first book in the Tender Ties historical series, A Name of Her Own. She and her husband Jerry ranch 160 acres in Eastern Oregon.
