Publisher's Summary

Eliza Spalding Warren was just a child when she was taken hostage by the Cayuse Indians during a massacre in 1847. Now the young mother of two children, Eliza faces a different kind of dislocation; her impulsive husband wants them to make a new start in another territory, which will mean leaving her beloved home and her departed mother's grave - and returning to the land of her captivity.

Eliza longs to know how her mother, an early missionary to the Nez Perce Indians, dealt with the challenges of life with a sometimes difficult husband and with her daughter's captivity. When Eliza is finally given her mother's diary, she is stunned to find that her own memories are not necessarily the whole story of what happened. Can she lay the dark past to rest and move on? Or will her childhood memories always hold her hostage?

Historical Fiction at its best!

Memory Weaver is a treat for those who love historical fiction. It tells the true story of Eliza Spaulding Warren who was held hostage during a Cayuse Indian raid in 1847, then continues with her life in the Pacific Northwest. Ms. Kirkpatrick did a remarkable job of transporting the reader into the life of a young girl and mother who became one of the first white women to settle in present day Idaho.

Realistic historical detail

The Memory Weaver is based on the true account of Eliza Spaulding, daughter of pioneer missionaries Henry and Eliza Spaulding, who ministered to the Nez Perce Indians. The book has realistic historical detail and a thought-provoking plot that kept me engaged throughout the story. Another wonderful Christian Historical by master story teller Jane Kirkpatrick.
