In a country healing from war, can a young woman find healing for her heart?
Courageous and unconventional, Rosemary Saxon served as a nurse during the Civil War, a service that has caused most women in town to regard her as unfeminine and even downright vulgar. Although she would like to put that part of her life behind her, she needs to support herself. She takes a nursing position with Dr. Elijah Stewart, but whenever they are together they always seem to do or say the wrong things. When someone threatens Rosemary, will she find the courage to stand, or will she leave town--and Elijah--forever?
With tenderness and grace, Ann Shorey invites you back to the town of Noble Springs, Missouri, for an engrossing story of love's tentative first steps and fragile future in the face of opposition.
MY THOUGHTS-Ann Shorey writes a story that leaves you wanting more. This is the second in the Sister's of the Heart series and I really enjoyed it. You will meet many of the same characters and fall in love with totally new faces. I liked getting the different takes on a nurse. In that time period many people thought that a nurse was subjected to things she shouldn't be seeing. And I can see where they were coming from. They weren't used to it for sure. But at the same time, a female nurse often helped the situation for another female. I also liked the whole herbs and natural healing aspect. This is a well written book that is a nice read. Not really what I would call suspenseful but overall a nice read.
