 The Change and Cherish series follows the story of feisty Emma Giesy

 A Clearing in the Wild

Spirited young Emma Wagner chafes at the constraints of her 1850s religious community, which values conformity over independent thought, especially in women. Skeptical of the colony’s growing emphasis on preparing for “the last days,” Emma clashes with their increasingly autocratic leader-and faces the unexpected consequences of pursuing independence.

 A Tendering in the Storm

This lyrical novel, based on an historical figure of the 1800s, follows the spirited and intelligent Emma Giesy, who achieves her goal of separating her family from the repressive religious community in which she grew up. But unexpected and dire consequences leave her family-and her faith-struggling to survive.

 A Mending at the Edge

This richly textured novel, the third in the acclaimed Change and Cherish series, follows the historical figure of Emma Wagner Giesy, who chafes under the restrictions of her 1860s religious colony. When her bid to belong in her unique way unravels her most precious relationships, she seeks new ways to stitch meaning into her life.

  1. Thanks for the kind words about the Change and Cherish series. The cover you have for the second book isn’t one I recognize! Maybe it was an earlier version or maybe it’s from a book club. Anyway, it was interesting to see! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Warmly, Jane

  2. Is A Tendering in the Storm the last in the Change and Cherish series? I have enjoyed this series so much and don’t want it to end! Do you have any other novels in the works?
