An Absence So Great by Jane Kirkpatrick blog tour review

While growing in confidence as a photographer, eighteen-year-old Jessie Ann Gaebele’s personal life is at a crossroads. Hoping she’s put an unfortunate romantic longing behind her as “water under the bridge,” she exiles herself to Milwaukee to operate photographic studios for those owners who have fallen ill with mercury poisoning.

Jessie gains footing in her dream to one day operate her own studio and soon finds herself in other Midwest towns, pursuing her profession. But even a job she loves can’t keep painful memories from seeping into her heart when the shadows of a forbidden love threaten to darken the portrait of her life.

My Thoughts:

Jane Kirkpatrick is the master at pulling up into the heart of the story as well as into the lives of her characters. Powerful, gripping, full of inspiration An Absence So Great is an amazing story of forgiveness as well as a story of finding yourself. Complete with corresponding pictures that enhance your reading experience. Truly a great read that everyone should have to their to be read list.

This book sounds like a great book of women who were able to break into a mans world yrs ago.
We are so lucky to be living at a time when we women can do anything we wish to without being black balled or bullied..(almost LOL)
