    I have not read Jane Kirkpatrick before but I now want to read all she wrote! This story involving the life adventures of a white girl raised by Oregon Native Americans, written from a first person perspective and from historical facts, was very intriguing. I especially related to the abandonment and trying to fit in of this young girl, although rejected. Your heart crys out for her rescue from the hardness of life, yet her joys of adult life were so compensating. The end is the stuff dreams are made of! Any person who loves the pioneers and the Oregon Trail as well as Native Americans will devour this book. A must for any avid reader of this era in America….

    I had never read Jane before and have since read all her books.I have met her,she care deeply for the native Americans, Oregon, and God. Her books bring the time period to life and make you ponder to many of life’s truths. I gave this book to a teacher friend who is making it required reading in her highschool English class, (here in Ore)! I’m so glad I’ve discovered Jane and look foward to her series on pioneer women….

    Something in this writing of Jane’s resonated deeply in me, the lone small child in many foreign worlds, learning enough trust to love, surviving being different. All of these things are still with us today, but set in the historical time of Oregon’s clash of cultures they bear wider lessons. For me, Jane draws her characters as if they were part of an autobiography. I can easily imagine myself a child alongside Asiam. For those interested in good history as well as a spell-binding tale, I recommend this book….

    Love to Water My Soul has become one of my all time favorite books. I recommend it to anyone who asks for a good book idea. Jane Kirkpatrick’s writing shows the resilience of a child and as she grows, an adult. It brought me to tears of sadness, but then of joy. There are so many beautifully written scenes in this book, I had to copy them down in my journal to reread…my one surprise is that Hollywood hasn’t turned it in to a movie yet!…

    I loved this book and it gave me the paradigm to see my everyday world differently. I even went through my journals and saw what seemed so bad at the time, that it was for the best in the long run. I just loved her book and became totally absorbed by it. Her female character was strong and brave. After reading it, I couldn’t wait to devour all of her other novels in print in 1999. They did not meet the extrodinary writing of Love to Water my Soul….

    This book tells a very nice story (summarized in other reviews). However, I had some trouble getting started with the book as I found it a little slow in the beginning. I found the writing to be a little bit “flowery” and sometimes wished the author was a little more direct. But overall a good book….

    Love to Water My Soul is the second in Jane Kirkpatrick’s “dreamcatcher” series. While there is some slight overlapping of characters (the main characters of the first book become minor, secondary characters in this book), the books each stand alone and you definitely do not need to read the first one in order to enjoy this one.The common denominator in this series, besides the setting (central and eastern Oregon in the late 1800s), is that each book focuses on a woman who endures great adversity to finally come to a place of peace and contentment. Although the main characters in both books are white women, they have strong empathy and connection with the Native Americans, and the tribes of the area play a significant role in each book.That is especially true in Love to Water My Soul, since the story is about a young girl who, at a very young age, somehow becomes separated from her family while travelling west on a wagon train. She is found by Native Americans alone in the middle of…
