Publisher's Summary

Alice Carter found herself a widow, her doctor husband murdered as he left the hospital where he worked. Alice, too, is a doctor and thought she wouldn't have any trouble finding a position with the hospital where her husband had been so well regarded. She was wrong. Seems no one wanted a female doctor, especially one in mourning. Seeing no other way out, Alice becomes a mail-order bride to a doctor in Hope's Crossing in the Montana Territory.

Dr. Jeremiah Kilarney needs help. He needs a nurse to assist him with his patients. Knowing he has to marry the woman or she'll be inundated with marriage proposals from the lonely miners, he goes to Matchmaker & Co. Specifying his need for a nurse or someone willing to be trained as one, he's surprised when Alice Carter, doctor, steps out of the stagecoach with her precocious daughter, Melly.

Can Alice and Jeremiah have a future when ghosts from her past still hold her heart?

Hope's Crossing can be the answer to their future or the end of their dreams.

Trials, Satisfactions, Loves of a Working Mother

The last in the series, this book can be listened to without knowledge of the others in the series. Still, I recommend enjoying each book. This book centers around a doctor finding her own place in to practice medicine as well as the struggle to care for her child. She resorts to becoming a bride to a Western doctor in hopes of also being able to practice medicine. I enjoyed the developing relationship between the husband and wife, even though the hero (as always in Woolf's books) swears that he is unable to love his wife. Revisiting characters from the previous books in the series made the novel even more enjoyable for me. My only complaint is the one I have had with each of the other books in this series--the narrator uses a southern accent for a character originally from Illinois as well as for those from New York. Perhaps I expect too much oral interpretation. I still easily listened to and finished the book.

Journey into the unknown

This was a very good book. I enjoyed the journey with Bella and in getting to know Alex. I did fine his stubbornness irritating, but he finally realized how he felt and made her feel well loved. The fact that the man she ran away from would not give up was also irritating. Why would a man trace a woman all the way from New York to Montana, when she had let hlim know she didn't want any part of him by running away. On the whole it really is a good book and I recommend it whole heartedly. I have read this book several years ago, but listened to it today, was like hearing a new book. I look forward to hearing many more books.
