Product Description

When a handsome and serious young doctor begins to visit the dinner table of Cassandra Dell Winston's father, Cassandra is intrigued by such a conscientious man. After their marriage, she agrees to leave the upper society of Montreal for the adventure of the western frontier. Contrary to her expectation of glamorous adventure, however, the west is full of hardships that Cassandra never could have expected. Will she ever be able to embrace her husband's unglamorous lifestyle as a frontier doctor, or will her longing for city life overcome the love she has for her husband? Janette Oke, paperback, 222 pages.

    "They Called Her Mrs. Doc" is a Christian historical set in the Canadian West during the pioneer time period. It's a part of the "Women of the West" series, but the books aren't connected to each other so you can read them in any order. These novels are quick reads.

    The setting and historical detail created a nice yet still somewhat vague (as to exact time period) backdrop for the events. The story followed Cassandra's life from seventeen-years-old until she's very old, so we get more of an overview of her life than a good look at her during one period of her life. Her main struggle was to adjust to living in an "uncivilized" town where she didn't know anyone or fit in. And then she had to learn to sometimes help her husband and the townspeople (when her husband wasn't available) medically despite the fact she gets nauseous at the sight of blood.

    The Christian element was woven in as a natural part of the story, and it wasn't a big part of the story. Cassandra realizes that she knows about God but doesn't know God on a personal basis, so she decides to change that and then let Him change her attitude about her circumstances.

    Married sex was implied (as babies were born). There was a very minor amount of "he cussed" style of bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable novel.
