Product Description

After being educated in the east, Deborah Vandermark returns to Perkinsville, Texas, where her family is part of the thriving logging industry. She brings along an unexpected companion-her best friend, who is fleeing a wedding and groom she has no interest in. A determined matchmaker, Deborah sets her sights on uniting her brother and friend in what she hopes will be a true love match.

Then Deborah meets Christopher Clayton, the town's new doctor-and quickly realizes she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she studied at college. Soon Deborah is caught between her fascination for doctoring and her obligation to her family. And in the midst of her warring emotions is the doctor himself. Are her tumultuous feelings for the man, or for what he can teach her?

Publisher's Description

The logging industry in eastern Texas is booming, and Deborah Vandermark plans to assist her family's business now that she's completed college. Unexpectedly, her best friend, Lizzie Decker, accompanies her back home--fleeing a wedding and groom she has no interest in. Deborah, the determined matchmaker, puts her sights on uniting her brother and dear friend in a true love match.

Deborah soon meets Dr. Christopher Clayton, a much-needed addition to the town. As their lives intersect, Deborah realizes that she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she was trained in. But when typhoid begins to spread and Lizzie's jilted fiance returns, Deborah wonders if true love can overcome such obstacles...for those dearest to her, and for herself.

    This book reminds me that if the reason to get into a committed relationship is wrong, it's better not to get into it. For once we are in a relationship, it's harder to try to change and it's almost impossible to get out for God do not permit divorces!! And if we are not married, there's a part of us that has been given to the other person. And with us knowing it or not, the damage has already been done.

    Secondly, it's always important to be truthful with each other before considering a committed relationship. For a relationshio that's build on falsehood is bound to fail. Family is always more important than spouse, for when we bring another person into a messed up family, it only gets worst. It's better to sort the family issues before proceeding until you know you are able to handle the situation.

    Thirdly, God made us each a masterpiece. It's ok if you are different than others. The more important question is, are you doing God's will? Are you pleasing Him? Are you being yourself, the one God created you as? I believe when we can honestly say yes, that's when we will have the joy and peace flow out from the bottom of our hearts.

    Last but not least, the west always bring a lot of mental pictures to me. The difficulty and hardship all year through but the satisfaction at the end of the year to see what you have achieved and that you can be a blessing to the people around. It's my dream to raise godly offsprings and leave a legacy.

    As the story starts out, a bride bent on marrying into a loveless relationship to prove herself to her mother is quite a different perspective for this era. Most girls dreamed of love but never expected to find it due to arranged marriage within her "social" circle. Then here is Deborah encouraging her friend to walk away from this horrible idea of a marriage and one day hope to find true love. What great stories are made of!

    Now, Deborah is a girl after my own heart. Mistakely obligated to care for her family's business when no one expected it of her but herself....lol :) Oh how we get certain ideas stuck in our heads and allow them to control us! God is so good & gracious as we blunder along. Praise the Lord for that!

    I look forward to the following book to see how Tracie Peterson revels a change in perspective for Deborah that I am sure is to come. Will she find true love for herself at last? I am sure we will find out!!!! :)
