She had a dream, but reaching her goal seemed as dark as night…
Fresh from medical school in the 1860s – and a woman at that – the young Dr Cheney Duvall struggles to find a position. She has almost given up hope when Asa Mercer turns up. He wants her services to chaperone and care for two hundred brides-to-be on a sea voyage from New York to Washington Territory. Cheney jumps at the opportunity. Accompanied by an unlikely nurse, Shiloh Irons, she finds herself facing an arduous voyage and dangers for which her medical training didn’t prepare her.
Book 1 in The Cheney Duvall, MD Series.
Lynn Morris, daughter of popular historical novelist Gilbert Morris, has become a recognised and talented writer in her own right. The first novel in this eight-book series was originally published in 1994, and it was an immediate bestseller (almost half-a million combined sales of the eight novels in the series). The author’s careful background explorations of the setting, medical customs of the late 1800s, and those institutions finally being opened to women, make for intriguing plots for the memorable character of Cheney.
