    Priscilla White knows the Lord is calling her to be a missionary. Then the missionary board declares that she must get married before she can go. What's she to do now? Nobody is going to want to marry her with her problem? Or at least she thinks.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I identified with the characters in that sometimes I don't communicate my heart to the special people in my life. The story helped me see the importance of sharing my true feelings.

    I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for writing a review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255

    This book shows how God's way is not always ours. It is an example of how He opens and closes doors. Was interested to discover at the end of the book that it was based on a true story of two women.

    Okay, I've got two words for you : Jody Hedlund!!

    Praise be Jesus because I've been waiting for a while- make that a long while- to get my hands on this book.

    I'm so happy to say that it was worth the wait and that I enjoyed every word! (Finished it in less than 12 hours).

    My first read from Jody Hedlund, and thank God that it's not her last work.

    Oh how I LOVE a good love story! I also appreciated the fact that this novel (inspired by a true story) demonstrated how God is strong in our weaknesses.

    But let's get it straight here. Ladies, if you like a good story, packed with adventure, twists and turns, a hot hero (um, sorry??) An even hoter love story, (NOT the 'cute' kind);

    It's about time you considered Jody's writing!

    Historical fiction means much more when it's been inspired by a true story, and that's just what Jody Hedlund gives her readers in "The Doctor's Lady".

    It is 1836, and Priscilla White knows she has been called to be a missionary teacher in India. She is just as sure that God has called her to remain single, but the Mission Board has decided young, single women are not fit for the dangerous mission field, and have turned down her application.

    Dr. Eli Ernest is also bound for the mission field - as a doctor to the native tribes in the newly discovered northwest. He has spent a year among the tribes in Oregon, and longs to return, but the Mission Board supporting him has determined that he must take a wife along, or not return at all.

    In order for both of them to fulfill God's call, Priscilla and Eli decide to marry - in name only. But even as they start their journey west, have the seeds of romance already been planted?

    Jody Hedlund was inspired by the story of Narcissa and Marcus Whitman, missionaries to the Nez Perce Indians in the early 1800's. Mrs. Hedlund drew extensively from the Whitman's diaries for her story, giving the incidents along the way the true flavor of authenticity.

    "The Doctor's Lady" is Mrs. Hedlund's second book (her first was her award-winning "The Preacher's Bride", 2010), and I hope we will be able to enjoy many more offerings. Her next book, "Unending Devotion", is due out September, 2012, and is available for pre-order now.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for my unbiased review.
