COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. —Emma of Aurora (Waterbrook Press, November 5, 2013) by award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick, based on the true story of Emma Wagner Giesy, offers readers the complete Change and Cherish trilogy in one volume. A trilogy, which compassionately explores the timeless struggles every woman faces, when seeking hope amid the disappointments of life.


In A Clearing in the Wild, Emma’s outspoken ways and growing skepticism leads to conflict with the 1850s Bethel, Missouri colony’s beloved leader. But as she heads West in pursuit of her dreams of independence and her deepest self, Emma discovers something she never expected: a yearning for the warm embrace of community.


A Tendering in the Storm finds Emma suddenly alone, pregnant with her third child, and determined to raise her children on her own terms. Struggling to keep her family secure in the Washington Territory forest, despair threatens to consume Emma and lead her into dangerous relationships. At a life turning-point, she must decide whether to continue on in her failing strength or to accept help from the people she eagerly left behind.


And in A Mending at the Edge, the third and final book in the trilogy, as a mother, daughter, sister, and estranged wife, Emma struggles to find her place inside—and outside—the confines of her religious community. By blending her unique talents with service to others on the fringe, she creates renewed hope as she weaves together the threads of family, friends, and faith.
