Emma of Aurora by Jane Kirkpatrick

Jane Kirkpatrick is one of the premier Christian authors who writes fiction based on real people in history. The Change and Cherish trilogy about Emma Wagner Giesy a women who dared stand up for herself in a time where women had little rights. The 3 books follow Emma across her life as a young married women and  see as her life twist and turns. Emma is a strong women and I love the rich detail the the author wove into the story all the while trying to keep it as historically accurate as possible. The fact that it was based on a real person made the book all the more intriguing !

This book was a interesting read,at times it dragged a bit and Ms. Kirkpatrick's writing style is not my favorite,but I would still recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about a women who dared to speak up in a day where women were usually seen and not heard.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review but the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
