Good news/bad news regarding Coronation Street. It is now on an hour per day Monday through Friday, so in theory we will sort of catchup with Britain at long flipping last. Bad news, actually more like sad news, I had tears flowing down my face last night, as it was Jack's funeral and poor Tyrone was so upset. I think the whole of Jack's death was handled so well. We are now close to the end of November 2010, and for those of you in Britain yes I do know what is going to happen next!! I "peek" at this site every week to see what's going on!!!
"The Doctor's Lady," by Jody Hedlund
Priscilla White knows she'll never be a wife or mother and feels God's call to the mission field in India. Dr. Eli Ernest is back from Oregon Country only long enough to raise awareness of missions to the natives before heading out West once more. But then Priscilla and Eli both receive news from the mission board: No longer will they send unmarried men and women into the field.
Left scrambling for options, the two realize the other might be the answer to their needs. Priscilla and Eli agree to a partnership, a marriage in name only that will allow them to follow God's leading into the mission field. But as they journey west, this decision will be tested by the hardships of the trip and by the unexpected turnings of their hearts.
Loved the book and the character's. Priscilla was such a strong character and you can't help but want to encourage her to never give up. I will say I felt her pain in one part of the book, as any mother would. Sorry I can't say more but it would spoil the story. It was interesting to learn more about the native Indian tribes and the struggle to cross across America by land.
I was interested to read in the Author's note at the back of the book, that this is based on a true story of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman If you love history, with a little romance added you will love this book.
Stars out of 5: 4.5 loved it just wished the book was longer. Couldn't put it down.
