    " I thought this book was very simple yet pleasant book at the same time. Tracie Peterson seems to bring alive the characters in this book in an ever so subtle manner, which makes it all the more realistic. I personally enjoy historical fiction a lot, and this book taking place in the late 1800's in Texas made it quite easy for me to be a "part of the story". I love how the author puts in Christian relevance in this book, too, and how the characters are strong in their faith with God. However, this book wasn't suspenseful or full of mystery; it also lacked a bit in imagery or strong liveliness. Regardless, I would rate this a 4/5 because of the morals and principals of this story. Plus, the characters were so sweet, too! To be honest i kinda liked teh cowboy more than the doctor.... but that's just me. "

    " Very typical Tracie Peterson formula..I still loved it! Very a la Dr. Quinn about a young woman in the 1800's who wants to persue medicine. I'm looking forward to the next two books in this series. "

    " This is a good quick read, if you're looking for something simple. It's also a little confusing as two friend's are introduced with parallel plot lines and it's not quite clear throughout the story which friend is the main character. It's another formula Tracie Peterson story, good, but not outstanding. Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford, award winning author of "The Whistling Bishop". "

    " Awesome book. I love how Peterson combines the historical setting, strong characters, a little bit of suspense and romance. In this story, Lizzie decides she really doesn't want to marry Stuart. Her best friend Deborah offers her family's home in Texas- for Lizzie. Although the setting is completely different than what Lizzie is used to- she learns to cook, it's hot, people are more "ignorant" than in the bustling city of Philadelphia, Lizzie is thoroughly enjoying it until her mom and supposed husband, Stuart, come down for a visit, to convince her to go back north. Of course Lizzie's mom, although a stalwart advocate of women's rights, suddenly decides Lizzie has no rights and she must submit to Stuart--she has signed the papers, but is she legally married? Meanwhile Lizzie has developed more of a backbone... "

    " This was probably my least favorite book from Tracie Peterson. I normally love her books. But this just seemed slow and stagnant. The antagonist was mild (that might be developed in other books in the series). And it just didn't seem to flow well. "

    " I was somewhat disappointed in the lack of depth. It was very perdictable and I do not like perdictable. When I know what's going to happen it's very hard to read. I've heard T.Peterson is a great author so I'll definitely read more from her. "
