“Reading All Together in One Place inspired our quilting group to quilt our version of your story in cloth.”
- Reader from Oregon --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

One of the incidents that made a profound impression upon the minds of all: the meeting of eleven wagons returning and not a man left in the entire train; all had died, and been buried on the way, and the women returning alone.
-from the journals of Ezra Meeker, 1852

Their lives would be tempered by adversity, expanded by faith, polished by perseverance.

For Madison "Mazy" Bacon, a young wife living in southern Wisconsin, the future appears every bit as promising as it is reassuringly predictable. A loving marriage, a well-organized home, the pleasure of planting an early spring garden--these are the carefully-tended dreams that sustain her heart and nourish her soul.

But when her husband of two years sells the homestead and informs her that they are heading west, Mazy's life is ripped down the middle like a poorly mended sheet forgotten in a midwestern storm. Her love is tried, her boundaries stretched, and the fabric of her faith tested. At the same time, she and eleven extraordinary women are pulled toward an uncertain destiny--one that binds them together through reluctance and longing and into acceptance and renewal.

Based on an actual 1852 Oregon Trail incident, All Together in One Place, Book One in the Kinship and Courage series, speaks to the strength in every woman and celebrates the promise of hope that unfailingly blooms amidst tragedy and challenge. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

En 1851, l'Oregon est seulement un territoire, pas un état des USA. Le gouvernement donne des terres aux colons qui viennent s'y installer. Des milliers de famille veulent en profiter, mais la route est longue, des mois à travers la prairie, les Rocheuses, à voyager dans des chariots dans des conditions précaires.
Une jeune femme quitte le Wisconsin avec son mari, il rêve de l'Oregon alors qu'elle aurait voulu rester. Ils se joignent à un groupe avec d'autres femmes, une jeune femme aveugle, une autre qui elève des chevaux et qui semble fuir un terrible secret, une soeur qui emmène de jeunes asiatiques que des maris, trouvés par correspondance, attendent en Californie. Le groupe est victime d'une épidémie de choléra et les femmes finissent par se retrouver sans homme adulte, à devoir choisir entre continuer le chemin ou faire demi-tour...
Le roman est passionnant, hyper bien documenté, pour découvrir un épisode de l'histoire du Far West mal connu en France: The Oregon Trail.

I didn't want to put it down! 15 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The only trouble I had with All Together in One Place was I couldn't put it down! I love how Jane doles out little bits of information on the characters, holding back what we really want to know.
In this book, the primary characters are women, a mix of women like you, me, our friends and associates, women who in one way and another become mighty. The context of each of the women's self-discoveries and their group emergence carries us on the best of pioneering adventures, the covered wagon trek. Their revelations provide fuel for our own journeys today.
I'm so glad Jane is writing more in this series. I'm sure other readers will be as eager as I to connect up with Mazie, Tipton, Ruth, Elizabeth and the others again. The turn-around women Ezra Meeker saw must surely be smiling. Jane did them good.

History, Wholeness, and Hope 15 mai 2000
Par Jean Nelsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
All Together in One Place, transported me not only to another time and place, but also through a journey of wholeness with 11 women who suffer incredible hardships on a wagon train headed west. Yes, I smelled the wood smoke of their fires, felt their grime and sweat, and learned to yoke oxen and load wagons with them. But more importantly I walked with women of depth through a journey of healing and hope. I experienced their fears, cried their tears and saw answers slowly unfold within them.
As usual, Jane has researched her subjects well. Authenticity shows not only in historical accuracy but in the psychological drama of what one normally considers to be only modern day maladies. Each character is alive with his or her distinct personality. Visionaries, exploiters, kind spirits, comedians, and all types of characters in between live on the pages of All Together in One Place, as does one very good dog.
Lovers of history, the West, and wholesome books with depth will enjoy this book a lot.

Faith, determination and friendship across the Oregon Trail 11 juillet 2001
Par Janice M. Hansen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a "must read" novel for anyone interested in the 1850's westward journey to reach California and Oregon over the historical Oregon Trail. The pioneers risked everything to make it there and the courage, strength and determination they had to have is an astonishing accomplishment.
Jane Kirkpatrick weaves a grand story based on a true accounting by Ezra Meeker in his 1852 journal. It notes his profound impression of a small group of covered wagons reaching their final destination along the Trail. In disbelief, he observes that there were no men in this group of 11 women and children. All the men had died along the way leaving the women to fend for themselves. Based on this recollection, Ms. Kirkpatrick reveals obvious historical research to enhance the story line and satisfy those historically hungry readers with accurate representations of life along the trail.
I would furthur urge historical buffs to pay attention to the author's notes and acknowledgments following the conclusion of the story. She recommends many excellent reference books which offer true accounts of the overlanders experiences, including detail books regarding everything from the pioneer's clothing to maps.
A truly wonderful book, the reader should be pleased to know they have two more sequels to keep the wonder going!

Politically Correct but well written 8 mars 2003
Par ShuShu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
No doubt about it - Jan Kirkpatrick is a wonderful writer. Each sentence is a work of art, and there is great depth and seems to be extremely well researched. I had a couple of problems with the book though. One was just that I'm not much of a wilderness/Old West buff, but the reviews made me decide to go ahead and read it. I still am not a fan of the genre after reading the book, so I'm sure that taints my opinion. The second problem I had was with the characters. The characters are wonderfully written and very real and multi dimensional. But, for the most part, I just didn't care for them too much. The ending helps shows the growth they made, but I really wasn't rooting for any of them through the book. Perhaps it was the politically correct slant that I felt throughout. All Indians and Asians were good, and did no wrong, while anyone who expressed fear of the Indians were shown to be judgemental and foolish. Ninety percent of the men were bullys, liars, abusive. The women were the stronger morally, spiritually, emotionally, and half the time physically. And while the book has a nice spiritual edge to it - the one person who is identified with faith is of course the legalistic, slightly dense one of the group. So, for me it's a mixed bag - great writing with a little preachiness and harshness that diluted the strength of the book overall.

A Real Portrait of Women Pioneers on the Trail West 16 septembre 2000
Par Maryann Fox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just finished reading this book and cannot begin to express how it made me feel as a woman. Jane takes you right along with them on the hot dusty trail through many emotions...but such unity at the same time. I loved the history of the book. You can tell she has really done her homework in this department. It always amazes me when the wagon train adventure is portrayed on television. The women all look like they just stepped out of a clothing shop. How could you possibly look great after all those miles, little water to bathe in, and lack of supplies? This book told it how it really was. Being a Christian, I enjoyed the fact that God entered into this story several times. These women truly needed faith to make it on a journey this long. I am so looking forward to the next in the series. Jane Kirkpatrick's books are the most outstanding historical novels, both in historic accuracy and just plain good reading.
