Popular inspirational novelists Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris pen absorbing plots rich with adventure and historical detail. In this exciting tale, they portray one woman's search for independence and self-expression amid the rigid social expectations of 1865 New York City.

Twenty-four-year-old Cheney Duvall believes she will be taken seriously once she finishes medical school. Months later, however, she still is without a position; no one wants to consult a woman doctor. When she hears of a shipload of hopeful brides-to-be bound for Seattle via the Panama Canal, however, her luck changes. The ship's authorities are eager to have a woman physician on board. But once Cheney meets the 100 women - and her disturbing male nurse assistant - she fears she has gotten in way over her head.

Father-daughter writing team Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris combine their talents to provide first-class entertainment with nourishment for the soul. Narrator Kate Forbes' stirring interpretation highlights Cheney's successes and setbacks as she discovers the path to complete self-fulfillment. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This is the only Inspirational fiction series which I've read and really enjoy. The books take place just after the Civil War and center around Cheney Duvall, a woman from a wealthy family who has become a doctor. The historical details in the series are great, as a historical fiction junkie, I appreciate the rich period details. Though the main plot of the series is the romance between Cheney and her (super hot) assistant Shiloh, the books also contain a lot of adventure elements. Being a Christan series, the god talk can get a little preachy and boring. Luckily Lynn Morris, the author of the series, spends more time developing an interesting story rather than writing a sermon. I recommend this series to anyone who loves fantastic historical fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 2/10/2014

    " It's pretty good. It's about a lady who becomes a doctor and goes on a voyage to be the doctor. No one else would hire her because she is a woman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/10/2014

    " I used to like this series a lot. It does have some funny moments/characters and interesting plot points, but it is also rather on the feminist and romantic side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 1/20/2014

    " I read this series as a child. While the writing veers of into teaching at times and there are often unexplained POV shifts, Cheney and Shiloh remain beloved characters that I have to revisit periodically. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 1/19/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saralyn | 12/19/2013

    " I really enjoy this series. Probably more than I should, but Cheney is very endearing to me, as are her family and the rest of the characters. (You gotta love Shiloh.) And fun to learn about history. And Morris makes some enlightening Christian comments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah Schug | 10/18/2013

    " I first read this book in the 9th grade, and I've read it at least 3 times since then. There's so much in it: history, intrigue, adventure, romance, girl power, and it's written by Christian authors. It's a great beginning to a wonderful series. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. It's the story of a female doctor who travels west together with a group of women who are hoping to find husbands + jobs as teachers there. A very sweet book, and quite interesting when one - as me - used to be a huge fan of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" ;-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 10/2/2012

    " So...I like this whole series. It has a dashing hero and a smart heroine. Easy to read Christian historical novels, a little preachy at times but far less than many. Wonderful characters and engaging story lines. "

    " These books are amazing. I loved reading these so much. I ordered four books in the series. Cheney is a young woman who has become a doctor in a time where woman were not accepted as any thing other then a mother or a teacher. In the end she proves them all wrong, that she can do it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 5/25/2011

    " I thought this book was about a girl breaking ground to become a doctor. Yet, her character was covered very little. As the book ended, I found myself singing, "The Love Boat". No Kidding. "

    " I think I could have liked this more if I had not been so busy and only reading a chapter here and there. I just never got into it. I won't be reading any more in the series right now....but maybe someday. "
