Historical Romance from the Author of The Preacher's Bride

Priscilla White knows she'll never be a wife or mother and feels God's call to the mission field in India. Dr. Eli Ernest is back from Oregon Country only long enough to raise awareness of missions to the natives before heading out West once more. But then Priscilla and Eli both receive news from the mission board: No longer will they send unmarried men and women into the field.

Left scrambling for options, the two realize the other might be the answer to their needs. Priscilla and Eli agree to a partnership, a marriage in name only that will allow them to follow God's leading into the mission field. But as they journey west, this decision will be tested by the hardships of the trip and by the unexpected turnings of their hearts.

JMJ.
When I saw the trailer, I purchased it at the library. It was a disappointment. There was a near rape scene and it made me sick. I read through it anyway and regret it. Explicit material is not needed in romance books, and from a Catholic perspective, it is not needed to make the story more romantic. In conclusion, though the history of doctors, Native Americans, wagon trains, and others was fascinating, I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It's not appropriate for the soul and it's influential. God bless!

I expected the book to read like a historical romance and that`s what it is. Knowing the story was based on real people and their actual trek made it more interesting, but the constant references to their supposed unrequited love for one another became tiresome.

This is a wonderful book inspired by the true story of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman.
The Author's Note should definitely be read for a further glimpse into the lives of this young missionary couple.

I'm a fan of all of Jody Hedlunds books. Her books deliver!

I cried tears when i got to the last page because i could not believe that the book was over. I felt that i needed more. Couldn't she just write one more chapter? Amazing book, i flipped back and read again.
