Book Review: The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund

Excerpt: He almost sounded as if he meant the words, that he wanted her as a real wife and not just a business partner. For a few minutes, it wouldn't hurt to pretend they were going to have a real marriage. Would it? The Doctor's Lady, pg 84.

Back Cover: Priscilla White KNEW God wanted her to be a missionary, NOT A WIFE.

Then, the missionary board declares the ONLY WAY she can serve is to be MARRIED.

Now, married IN NAME ONLY, her epic journey west will test her spirit ... and the new LONGINGS of her heart.

My Review: Jody Hedlund takes the reader on an epic journey with the first women to cross the continental divide. Loosely based on a true story, The Doctor's Lady provides the reader with excitement, danger, heartache, and hope. From the very first pages of the book, sparks fly between the two main characters keeping the plot full of drama, conflict and interest. Though the way is fraught with danger, the real conflict lies in the character's emotions and the longings of their hearts. Can these two unlikely partners make it clear across the continent, and find what they've been longing for?

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I recommend this book to lovers of historical fiction.
