Letitia holds nothing more dear than the papers that prove she is no longer a slave. They may not cause white folks to treat her like a human being, but at least they show she is free. She trusts in those words she cannot read--as she is beginning to trust in Davey Carson, an Irish immigrant cattleman who wants her to come west with him. Nancy Hawkins is loathe to leave her settled life for the treacherous journey by wagon train, but she is so deeply in love with her husband that she knows she will follow him anywhere--even when the trek exacts a terrible cost. Betsy is a Kalapuya Indian, the last remnant of a once proud tribe in the Willamette Valley in Oregon territory. She spends her time trying to impart the wisdom and ways of her people to her grandson. But she will soon have another person to care for. As season turns to season, suspicion turns to friendship, and fear turns to courage, three spirited women will discover what it means to be truly free in a land that makes promises it cannot fulfill. This multilayered story from bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick will grip readers' hearts and minds as they travel with Letitia on the dusty and dangerous Oregon trail into the boundless American West.

Fort Jupiter and the "Military Trail" of garrisons forged in the wild to push the resourceful Seminole Indians deep into the Everglades. How the army built two camps on the Loxahatchee and tried to open the fickle Jupiter Inlet with shovels and rakes. The wreckers of Key West. How they provided the only lifesaving service available to imperiled ships. How they incensed maritime insurers and why Congress authorized lighthouses on the Florida coast. The lighthouse builders. How George Meade and other hardy army engineers labored to create a chain of beacons on brittle reefs and open seas. Why Jupiter Inlet was by far the most difficult project of all. The Civil War on the Florida coast. The state's desperate plight. The "kidnapping" of the newly-installed Jupiter Light works as Florida abandoned all of its coastal defenses. The Gunboat Years. How sleek Confederate sloops "ran" the inlets of southeast Florida in desperate attempts to haul cargoes of cotton and turpentine to Nassau and trade for weapons and food —and how Union gunboats tracked them down. Life at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse in its early years. Living in solitude on supplies that arrived only once or twice a year. How life was sustained by spectacular hunting and fishing and shipwrecks whose cargoes could change a hardscrabble life overnight with bounty from the sea. The first brave settlers. How they carved out an inlet and built a thousand-foot tramway of beached lumber to link Lake Worth and the creek that led north to Jupiter. How they shipped their first crops in boxes made from driftwood. The paddle wheel steamer era. The emergence of steamboat trade up and down the Indian River. How it transformed Jupiter, at the southern end, into a settlement with a floating hotel, stores and a thriving little resort.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes Dean Koontz’s short story “Wilderness”! In Innocence, Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever. He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching. Praise for Innocence “A thriller that’s both chilling and fulfilling.”—People (four stars) “Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An optimistic and unexpected conclusion [mirrors] his theme. Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz’s imagination. Enjoy.”—Kirkus Reviews “Mystery and terror, the paranormal and romance—all combine to make Innocence a challenging and emotional experience.”—New York Journal of Books “This novel really is something special. . . . This may just be the book Dean Koontz was born to write.”—Thriller Books Journal “Entrancing . . . as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever constructed. Written in Koontz’ late mellifluent and reflective manner . . . [Innocence is] fueled by deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] hope for redemption.”—Booklist (starred review) “[An] imaginative, mystical thriller from bestseller Koontz . . . This is the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while.”—Publishers Weekly “Masterful storyteller Koontz delivers perhaps his most eerie and unusual tale to date. The timeline in this amazing story is compact, and readers will be swept along as they try to unravel hints and clues as to the true nature of both the protagonists and the unfolding drama. Unpredictably spine-chilling and terrifying, this is a story readers won’t soon forget.”—RT Book Reviews “Elegant . . . Fans of Koontz’s previous series will be left hoping that Addison and Gwyneth, too, will return.”—Library Journal

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? Based on true events, The Memory Weaver is New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick's latest literary journey into the past, where threads of western landscapes, family, and faith weave a tapestry of hope inside every pioneering woman's heart. Readers will find themselves swept up in this emotional story of the memories that entangle us and the healing that awaits us when we bravely unravel the threads of the past.
