    I read the rest of the series quite some time ago, but had not read the first book, this is a very good story as well as the rest of the series is.

    This book was one of the best! The events flowed nicely and it was just written smoothly. This series definately gives enough details in events like a murder. But overall, I LOVED it and got through it fast.

    This is the first in the Cheney Duvall, M. D. series. It was originally published in 1994 and has recently been reprinted.

    Cheney is a recent graduate of a woman's medical school. It is the 1860s and she is having trouble finding a position. When the opportunity to travel from her east coast home to Seattle with Asa Mercer and his brides, she jumps at the opportunity.

    She is surprised when the nurse she requested turns out to be a man.

    As the journey proceeds, there is intrigue, a mysterious shipment, a Pinkerton man, a hurricane, and finally, a murder.

    Morris has based her book on actual history. Asa Mercer did take two groups of women from the east coast to Seattle to be brides for the many men there. The story has been embellished, however, but that makes it all the more exciting.

    This was a pretty good story. It was well written and held my interest throughout. Of course, I live in the Pacific Northwest so I appreciated the historical aspect of this book.

    I would have liked an author's note describing what parts of the book were actual history.

    I was a little unhappy with the resolving of the murder mystery. How the murderer was uncovered and the events that immediately followed did not see to me to be withing the character and flow of the book.

    That was a minor problem, however. I think the book is well worth reading. You get a good story and a bit of history too.
