(Review from the author)
it was amazing

This is a book I wrote. But I'm posting this review for a Canadian reader who had trouble posting it. "In her indubitable way, Jane has exercised once again her God given gift for writing. With this story she brings to light a tale she has woven around her grandmother, Jessie Ann Gaebele’s life. It was a life which offers us a glimpse into the background of the little known profession --- early photography. By showing us Jessie’s keen interest in this art form, Jane has given those of us who live in this generation a gift few of us rarely see, that of beginning to understand the methods and skills, which had to be learned and were needed to produce fine photographs, in the early infancy of the craft. My own memories were unlocked and my appreciation to all those who left us early family photo’s is now very keenly appreciated. I recently had the opportunity of “digging out” and using some very old photo’s, which belonged to my parents, to reconnect with a family member I had never met. Because of that experience a bond was made between us that was highly emotional and we are grateful. Thank you Jane!!"

Barbara Hi, Jane. I love your books and am adding "A Flickering Light" to my "to read" list. I was excited to see you were on Goodreads. Thank you for using your talent for the Lord. Barb Peacock

Jane Kirkpatrick Thanks, Barb. I hope you enjoy the book. It was a fascinating journey to write about my own family after writing so many books about other people's families...Warmly, Jane
