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 mothers 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 daughters captivity.When Eliza is finally given her mothers 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 Kirkpatricks latest literary journey into the past, where threads of western landscapes, family, and faith weave a tapestry of hope inside every pioneering womans 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.
