Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emma Giesy, a strong-willed German-American, believes her young family will thrive in the light of their newfound freedom, after she and her husband branch off from their close-knit and repressive religious community in the spring of 1856.

A Story of Tender Truths

About a Woman’s Desperate Efforts

to Shelter Her Family

Determined to raise her children on her own terms, Emma suddenly finds herself alone and pregnant with her third child, struggling to keep her family secure in the remote coastal forest of the Washington Territory. With loss and disappointment as her fuel, she kindles a fire that soon threatens to consume her, making a series of poor choices that take her into dangerous relationships.

As clouds of despair close in, she must decide whether to continue in her own waning strength or to humble herself and accept help from the very people she once so eagerly left behind.

Based on a True Story

Rich with historical details and vivid characters, A Tendering in the Storm poignantly gives voice to a mother’s fears for her family and a woman’s search for her truest self.

Synopsis:

Strong-willed Emma Giesy and her husband leave a close-knit German religious community of the 1850s to work and live independently in the remote coastal forest of the Washington Territory, but when Emma suddenly finds herself alone and pregnant with her third child, her poor choices leave her wondering if an angry God has abandoned her to the consequences of her willfulness. Original.
