Jessica Layton left her Oregon hometown — and her longtime love — for medical school with one thing on her mind: saving lives. Her frontier dreams were filled with more than rural domestic life, even if that life was with the man she was supposed to marry… Now, years later, Cole Braddock is not pleased to see Dr. Jessica Layton back in Powell Springs. He’s never forgiven her for choosing her career over him. With his brother fighting in the trenches in France, Cole’s busy running the family horse farm and supplying mounts to the Allied forces. He assumes he won’t have to see much of his childhood love…but the pull between them only grows stronger. To escape the heartache of seeing Cole again, Jessica vows to keep her visit home as brief as possible. But the influenza epidemic that’s been ravaging the world hits Powell Springs hard. With no other doctor available, Jessica stays to treat the victims — and tries to ignore the emotions that surge each time Cole crosses her path. Cole knows that Jess can save their town, but will he let her heal his heart? Download and start listening now!

    " I recommended this book in error. There actually is another book called home by morning which is about a nurse's experiences in vietnam. I bought it @ the vietnam memorial giftshop in washington. it was a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adelaide | 2/15/2014

    " Good story...I like her writings...will read more of her "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosa | 2/11/2014

    " 1918 doctor comes to Oregon to visit her sister. Gets stuck doctoring in the town as the influenza epidemic is taking hold. Learns of the betrayal by her sister regarding her former love. Ending could have been better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 2/5/2014

    " Home By Morning was the first of two books. Home By Nightfall the next. Phenomenal story of a family prior to, during and after the WWI. This family lives in Oregon and one of the sons is sent to war....along with the horses from their farm. The story stays with the son in France while he serves. A woman in this family travels home, a doctor who had practiced in New York and the story starts with her coming home for awhile but then the plague sets in. Reading Alexis's books are so inclusive of what these families contended with in these days where women weren't respected as doctors and medicine wasn't what it is today. You get to know every single member of this family intimately and it's extended family, the relationships and how they supported one another. It really is an incredible way to learn history from a totally different window....with a fragrance only unique to Alexis - a fine, fine author. She even kept us in France so we know how the French suffered too - their homes and lands that took years to be re-nourished and replanted. You just can't help having to read Home by Nightfall after you've read Home By "Morning" You will thoroughly enjoy these books. I was very careful to not say anything to spoil any of your reading. I could not let the cupeth overflow as easy as it could have been. Enjoy these reads for yourself. You'll be glad you did ! Thank you Alexis Harrington for this journey I traveled with you in these two wonderful adventures - you're the best ! "

    " Haven't read a sappy romance in a while. I "checked it out" on my kindle with Prime. It is a no brainer, predictable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deedee | 1/24/2014

    " This is brain candy -- the conclusion is predictable from the onset but if you just need something to read, this is OK. It was offered at a low price for a Kindle download and I bit on a deal, but it really isn't particularly compelling or interesting despite being set against a period of history -- 1918 -- that included WWI and the flu epidemic that killed so many. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Cunningham | 1/20/2014

    " Good romance novel with historical background. Hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mia | 1/14/2014

    " A fast read. A good story set in the west at the end of World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic. Not a book I would read again but worth reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Danielle Lundberg | 1/9/2014

    " This is the worst piece of predictable trash I've read in a long time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassie | 12/31/2013

    " I liked the characters, the general plot, and the historic setting. I would never have picked this up if I knew it was sexually explicit. I also found the ending lackluster, almost like the author ran out of steam. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elijah Jacobson | 12/7/2013

    " Incredible love story! Love the historical aspect, as well. Really creative writing on the author's part. Look forward to reading more of her work. : ) "

    " Really good story about a female dr in the US during world war I "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 7/14/2013

    " Enjoyed this book, enjoyed the setting, the year was 1918, the Spanish Flu, WWI, the woman Dr., the love triangle. Laughed out loud as one character got what was coming to them in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanie | 7/2/2013

    " When I read a book like this, I appreciate the relationship between author and reader. This was lacking. Could not connect with the characters and it drove me crazy that the obvious was not obvious to the characters. A fair enough plot, no connection "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 6/23/2013

    " Started out strong, but mid-way through the plot began to fizzle. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen Crowell | 6/13/2013

    " Dr. Quinn Medicine woman meets the evil sister and the old boyfriend--oh yeah, and a nasty plague! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janjewell | 2/25/2013

    " I actually read Home by Nightfall first (which is out of order). It was well-written and unusual so I decided to go back and read its prequal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen A | 1/24/2013

    " Well now. A surprisingly good read. Excellent storyline with the exception that I think the characters involved in WWI should be a sequel. What say you, Ms. Harrington? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 1/23/2013

    " The story was mediocre but I enjoyed learning about the role of women doctors at the turn of the 20th century and influenza here at home during WWI. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen Brunnett | 1/6/2013

    " Too much focus on the romance end and not enough on the Historical element. Not a page turner "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lili | 1/2/2013

    " A pleasure to read, an easy read with a predictable love story but I quite enjoyed this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 12/1/2012

    " this was good but predictable. "
