Product Description

Dr. Daniel Kavanagh travels to Mount Laurel, West Virginia to honor his good friend. He enjoys the town and decides to stay and set up a medical practice. A scarlet fever epidemic hits the community and the physician at the local mine company abandons his post. Daniel feels obligated to help a severely ill 9-year-old girl. He meets Addie Rose Murphy, who has a gift for caring for others. When a receptionist and assistant position become available at his office, since she wants to train to become a nurse, he immediately thinks of Addie. This could become more than a nursing job as the two spend more time together.

    Set in a small town of Mt Lauren, Harp on the Willow introduces us to Dr Daniel Kavanagh who has decided to make the town his home and establish his practice there. He also has a mad unrequited love in the local school teacher.

    Circumstance dictate that he also spend time in a neighbouring town Owenduffy as the mining company doctor us up and left his post without a backward glance.

    Thrown in with the daughter of a coal miner - Daniel starts to realise that what he thinks he wants may not be what he really needs.



    Harp on the Willow was a solid start to a new historical series which I will be interested to follow. It had compelling characters who I enjoyed getting to know. My only criticism was the ending did feel quite abrupt and left the story slightly flat but here to hoping that the second book will fill out some of those details missed.

    A good start to a new historical series by one of my favorite Christian fiction authors! Set in 1869 West Virginia, book one introduces the town of Mount Laurel, and Dr. Daniel Kavanagh, whose practice includes a wide variety of people--from babies to the elderly--giving the story a bit of a Mitford feel set back in time. The story takes a turn from the sunny side of town, to the darker, dusty side, when the good doctor is called to help out across the river in the coal mining town of Owenduffy. Not everyone is happy about his choice to serve both communities.

    "We are not here to play, to dream, to drift; We have hard work to do, and loads to lift; Shun not the struggle, face it, 'tis God's gift." (Maltbie Babcock)

    This quote especially fits the character of Dr. Daniel who is a solid character, hardworking to a fault, focused on serving his community well. His past in the Civil War and growing up as an Irish immigrant gave him an extra amount of compassion. I got the feeling there was a connection to another book with the mention of Hull House and his family.

    This is a good start to a new series, with a tender romance included. The theme of prejudice stands out, mainly against the Irish immigrant mine workers and impoverished in the mining 'camp', and the choice to follow conscience over matters of the heart. I look forward to reading more of his story and getting to know other characters in the next books. Wished the ending had been stretched out more, with more details of his relationship to the woman he chooses to pursue. It seemed to skip over some interesting details.

    Recommend to readers who enjoy clean historical romances.
