“A mixed blend of fun, witticism and romance." (Publishers Weekly)
I really enjoyed this book. The Lord is very present in Hake's writing. I definately recommend this book.
I'm about half way through listening to this book and am delighted that I have it. For me, it's a light "read," about a topic I'm fond of (women doctors on the frontier) and is written and read well enough to hold my interest -- not all books are, so this book is a positive for me and I'd certainly recommend it.
The narrator was very good, however, her style was mismatched for this story. I believe that she would be very, very good with children's storys.
I love just about anything that Cathy Marie Hake writes, but I had to stop midway through the second chapter because the characters seemed so unreal.
I am not giving up though, because I am going to buy the paperback and try again. CMH is one of my all time favorites; besides, I want to see what happens to Lynette.
Like mysteries, not much in to SciFi, hate vampire books. Like most all years of history.
Too predictable and overly dramatic. I hate it when I can't finish a book I paid for, but I just was not able to get into this one.
