Spur Award / Western Writers of America FINALIST 2004
Congratulations to Jane Kirkpatrick for her 2006 Phoenix Desert Rose Golden Quill Finalists Award for A Land of Sheltered Promise!
“A Land of Sheltered Promise is historical Christian fiction at its best. The reader comes away with a clear vision of the land, of the people who occupied the land, and of a Supreme Being who ties it all together.”
–The Historical Novels Review
"A story of inspiration and courage as only Kirkpatrick can write."
–Roundup Magazine, Western Writers of America
“Classic Kirkpatrick…tightly written, honestly conceived and executed, deeply moving and exciting.”
–The Statesman Journal, Salem, Oregon
"What does this Jewish reviewer derive from this and Kirkpatrick’s previous novels? In people of all faiths or no apparent faith, growth begins with a desperate step in a new direction."
–Harriet Rochlin, author of Pioneer Jews: A New Life in the Far West
