Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position.
Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in "Oregon Country," she decides to stay rather than push on.
With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills--or her presence--and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible.

This seems to have been very well researched. I had a hard time putting this book down. I had to check in to see who did survive the Whitman massacre. I loved the characters of Grace and her sisters and Alex. Each character handles adversity in a different way. I look forward to reading the second book in the series.

After the death of her parents, Grace needs to provide for her two younger sisters, so she enters into a marriage of convenience with the Reverend Right Martindale and together with her sisters Hope and Mercy they set out with a wagon train heading west. On the way though tragedy strikes and Grace must find a way for her and her sisters to survive.
Alex Armistead has been running from his past for the last 20 years. Making his living as a trapper, Alex has resigns himself to a life of solitude, until he meets a beautiful young widow who is determined to help whomever God put's in her path.
I loved Grace. As a healer, she feel's a deep desire to help anyone she can because she believed that it is the right thing to do. She let's God lead her and trust that He know's what is best. She was also humble enough to recognize when she needed help and to ask for it. She doesn't let her pride stand in the way.
She and Alex made a wonderful couple. Through most of the book they couldn't seem to see eye to eye on a whole lot of things, the way that the author chose to them work things out to me was very well done.
The majority of the book takes place at the Whitman Mission and the massacre that took place there. The author takes historical facts and incorporates them into her story. The Whitman Massacre was a very dark event, and I was so impressed by the sensitive way that she handled it.
As with all her books, this book was filled with lots of conversations about God and Jesus and salvation along with characters who pray. She does not come off as preachy but does an excellent job of making it flow in the course of a conversation.
NOTE: The only thing that I would caution in letting younger readers read it before a parent or guardian. Part of the story deals with women being sexually assaulted during the massacre. While there is nothing at all graphic, the author alludes to these things.
I enjoyed this book and can not wait to read the rest of the series.
