An Absence So Great is the continuing story of Jessie Ann Gaebele's journey to becoming an independent female photographer and understanding love and it's role in her life.
Her story began in A Flickering Light, and because of the choices she made and some that were made for her, she moved away from her hometown of Winona, Minnesota. In this new novel, Jessie is working as an assistant doing the retouching and helping set up for portraits... so much less than she aspires to do. Will she find love? Will she ever have her own studio?
An Absence So Great is the conclusion to the wonderful story of Kirkpatrick's grandmother! I loved it and reading the real-life struggles of an indepent, smart woman in the early 1900s.
