September 6, 2017 7 p.m.--Jane Kirkpatrick,author of All She Left Behind. Please note location change for this event. Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 South State Street, Lake Oswego (lower level) Already well-versed in the natural healing properties of herbs and oils, Jennie Pickett longs to become a doctor. But the Oregon frontier of the 1870s doesn't approve of such innovations as women attending medical school. To leave grief and guilt behind, as well as to support herself and her challenging young son, Jennie cares for an elderly woman using skills she's developed on her own. When her patient dies, Jennie discovers that her heart has become entangled with the woman's widowed husband, a man many years her senior. THeir unlikely romance may lead her to her ultimate goal--but the road will be winding and the way forward will not always be clear. Through her award-winning, layered storytelling, New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick invites readers to leave behind their preconceived notion about love and life as they, along with Jennie, discover that dreams may be deferred--but they never really die. Based on a true story. And we have been told that there is a character from Oswego in this book. Jane Kirkpatrick lives in Central Oregon.
