A Flickering Light
By Jane Kirkpatrick

"Taking a page from her grandmother's photo album, award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick explores the mystery of shadow and light and the complications of a young woman's pursuit of her dreams. Jessie Gaebele is trained to operate studios around the Midwest in the early 1900s when photographers became ill from mercury poisoning. As her skills grew, so did her interest in her mentor, a very married man. This first book of two in the Portrait of a Heart Collection was called "...exceptionally authentic...a compelling portrait...aching and hopeful" in a starred Publisher's Weekly review. Jane received the 2008 WILLA Literary award for Best Original Paperback Novel. This is her 15th novel."
