Publisher's Summary

Jeanette Peterson and her sister, Abigail, are running from a dark past and hiding from an even darker future. When they happen upon the Brody Hotel in Topeka, Kansas, they're given a chance at a whole new life, one where they can choose who they want to become. When Jeanette assists the town doctor with a difficult case, she realizes she has a calling and a passion to become a nurse. 

Dr. Phillip Wayment is a set-in-his-ways bachelor, more than happy to run his medical practice alone. When Jeanette asks him to mentor her, he's hesitant at first, not wanting some woman underfoot. But as they work together, he comes to realize how valuable she is to his career...and to him. Will the secrets from her past ruin what they've built?

Clean romance

This book was pretty good. It held my interest, but I think I would have liked it better had I read it instead of listening to it. The narrator seemed too chipper in serious parts. It doesn’t quite end on a cliffhanger but it doesn’t completely tie up all the loose endings- you would need the next book to know what happens to the main characters.

Great story

I just love this series. I cannot wait to see how the story changes from book to book and what you will come up with to write. Love this one!

A fun easy listen

I really enjoyed this book. The beginning felt a bit slow to me at first, but it didn't bother me enough to stop. By the end, I was glad I had listened to the whole thing. The story is easy to follow, and I like the characters. I personally struggled listening to this narrator at times, however. I found her tone to sound like she was trying to read verse, and so she would pause at strange places in the middle of sentences/thoughts that felt bothersome to me. However, I still enjoyed the read. I would recommend it.

Sweet historical romance.

The hero was pretty lovable. I haven’t read more in this series but it did give me a good understanding the series. I will probably read more by this author.

The Dark and the Dawn

Another great book by Amelia Adams. This is a great series and I look forward to every book. Jeanette came into her own. She came out from hiding behind her sister, and showed the courage she had all along.

Wonderful story!

This is a well written story about overcoming adversity, and of course, finding love. This one might be my favorite in the Kansas Crossroads Series - they just keep getting better and better! I love this series, and Amelia Adams’ writing.
