In a Flickering Light

Jane Kirkpatrick

In A Flickering Light, (WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, A division of Random House), Jane Kirkpatrick draws a page from her grandmother's photo album to capture the interplay between temptation and faith that marks a woman's pursuit of her dreams in her fifteenth novel. Jessie Gaebele was a photographer's assistant in 1907 in Winona, Minnesota in this first book of the Portrait of a Heart series. Publisher's Weekly, in a starred review, called the novel ".exceptionally authentic" with ".exquisite nuance.aching and hopeful." The story is told over three years through the eyes of Jessie, her employer, F.J. Bauer; and his wife, Mrs. Bauer. Five actual glass plate photographs are reproduced in the novel with Jessie as the first person narrator of her story behind each photograph. The first is what Jessie calls "The Subject" and it begins the novel.

Jane Kirkpatrick, author of A Flickering Light (WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group), Book one of A Portrait of a Heart series, is available now at;;;;; and fine bookstores everywhere.
