This book was a true joy to read. I now have a new author who ranks with Tamara Alexander, Jocelyn Green, Michael Phillips and more! Jennifer Delamere not only wove an interesting tale displaying each player’s character, but added the sparks of honest love with sacrifice. I loved the medical and legal side of the story that showed how people thought about women’s roles at that time. Her writing was easy to read, although creative. Julia Bernay had an important goal in life but came to realize that God might adjust the adventure to accomplish His will. Michael Stephenson had allowed his profession, family and disappointments to take priority over any faith he may have had as a child. I read this novel first so I will go back and read “The Captain’s Daughter”. I am excited to have found this wonderful Historical Christian author and look forward to reading more from her.

This book was given to me by Bethany/Baker Books. All opinions are my own. Mary Ann Young Robinson, Boise, Idaho
