Where Lilacs Still Bloom. When reading any of Ms. Kirkpatrick’s books, I become engaged, almost instantly, on many levels at once. It wooed and won me to Hulda’s story even as it coaxed me to look at my own life as well. Jane Kirkpatrick reimagines the true story of a nature-loving wife and mother who studied Luther Burbank and devoted herself to breeding new and improved varieties of lilacs. Families suffer, thrive, and evolve as new flowers emerge in a gentle tale as sweet as its fragrant garden. JANE S. SMITH, author of In Praise of Chickens and The Garden of Invention.

It was two weeks since we’d all been together at the exposition, just around the corner from the Fourth of July. What? had to stand on tiptoes t. I held the black piece that looked like a small trumpet to my ear, adjusted it yet again. Dr. Alice is on her way.

Altogether, LILACS is a lovely read. I chose them at first as the series had to do with Grays Harbor area of Washington state of which I am familiar. But "Where the Lilacs Bloom" is the tops so far! I don't think she can out do herself! Tears and joy I experienced reading it.

Jane Kirkpatrick attended University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, where she initially majored in English before switching to social work, eventually earning a master's degree. She went on to work in this field for three decades. When visiting Oregon while looking for a job, she fell in love with the area and moved to Bend in 1974.

German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth-grade education -- and a burning desire to make something beautiful. What begins as a hobby to create an easy-peeling apple for her pies becomes Hulda's driving passion. It's a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds with her family and community, as she challenges the early 20th-century expectations for a simple housewife.

Through the years, seasonal floods continually threaten to devastate her Woodland, Washington orchard and gardens, and a series of family tragedies cause even Hulda to question her focus. In a time of practicality, can one person's simple gifts of beauty make a difference?

As a child, I walked to school past towering lilacs, white, lavender, pink. Their scent was enveloping, and heralded the last month of school. When we built our home in Monroe, Georgia, I so yearned for that smell. But Georgia, with its heat is not welcoming to those gentle blossoms. But I had one scraggly lilac whose fragrance was perfect. What a joy it was to relocate to within forty miles of Hulda's incredible garden, and to visit it last spring in Woodland in all its glory. And now I have two Klager lilacs about to bloom.
This book tells the amazing history of that woman's persistence and vision, a vision she was able to spread from one end of the country to another, and of the people who, after the devastating flood which utterly destroyed her life's work, and the threat of a neglected garden about to be plowed under for development and lost forever, reclaimed by women in the community. For anyone who's ever hoped and planted, a wonderful story, but do have your hankie close by.

I am blessed to live in Vancouver, WA not far from Woodland, WA and have had the glorious pleasure of visiting Hulda Klager's Lilac Gardens and Home at least half a dozen times. I shared my adventure about my Visit with my son and his wife and they thought it sounded amazing and so we visited it together the following Mother's Day and it has become a yearly Mother's Day Tradition. I highly recommend the experience of stepping back in time and walking the grounds, visiting the gift shop, and touring Hulda and Frank's home. And yes, you can still purchase Lilac starts there.

Jane Kirkpatrick did a fabulous job on this Historical Fiction of the Amazing Life of Hulda Klager...I highly recommend it!!

This is a great story of a woman honoring the gifts she was given, devoting her life to the improvement of apples, daffodils and, best of all, lilacs. She outlived all her children, siblings and her husband as well as replanting her garden several times due to flooding. They don't make them like her anymore!

REVIEW OF JANE KIRKPATRICK'S WHERE LILACS STILL BLOOM

The story of how Jane Kirkpatrick came to write of where lilacs bloom is as delightful as her depiction of a life well and beautifully lived. The writer knew of Hulda Klager but a passionate devotee gradually tweaked Kirkpatrick's interest until her great research skills and imagination were fully engaged. The result is a charming and insightful characterization of a woman obsessed with ideas of hybridization.

The story develops from Hulda's success in producing a tastier, easier-to-peel pie-apple to her world renown lilacs with tales of her father's undoubting support to her husband's eventual conversion and participation. Others were vocal about her "sin" in altering God's designs; she worried that she wasn't a good enough wife or mother, sacrificing her family to her work. The strain on Hulda brought her to a dark place when doubt and multiple losses threw her into a year-long battle with depression. Kirkpatrick probes the depth of Hulda's personality with a finely tuned fork, showing the reader her quirks and strengths.

Plants were not the only thngs to be nurtured in Hulga's realm. She opened her doors to young girls in need of a home and education, something Hulga felt she lacked with her grammar school training. The girls and the young boys she hired to work in her gardens benefitted from her influence as did many others she met along her path.

WHERE LILACS STILL BLOOM falls well within Jane Kirkpatrick's style: based on a real, well researched historical character, interpreted masterfully, with a message to deliver and an educational edge. Altogether, LILACS is a lovely read.

I have enjoyed Jane Kirkpatrick's gift of "enhanced biography"--her true stories of women of the northwest enhanced by her gift of fiction and story telling. This lovely book is no exception. I am not a gardener but this story made me wish I was! I now understand why people pour themselves into creating beauty from dirt. And I will never look at lilacs the same way again. Hulda Klager's gift was truly remarkable...and inspiring!

I thought at first that her characters were a bit slow, but really they weren't that way. They were skillfully integrated into a lovely story of a woman's life of loving service to her family and friends. Hulda Klager left a wonderful legacy.

This book will inspire your dreams and refresh your soul. Hulda's simple life belies her incredible gifts as a gardener. Her thoughts and words reached deep into my heart and soul. Her German heritage mirrors my mother's , as does her indomitable spirit and deep abiding Faith. Thank you Jane Kirkpatrick for sharing the realities of Hulda's amazing story by making it personal in it's fictionalization.
Beautifully written Christian historical fiction masterpiece by my favorite author, Jane Kirkpatrick. If you live in the Northwest and love gardening, this is a MUST read. I love reading all of her books, and always end up visiting the places she writes about. This is no exception. (I've planted ANOTHER lilac bush since readings this - I was so inspired). :)
