Very enjoyable book. Written like an autobiography, fiction novel of a doctor's wife in western Canada in the late 1800's to early 1900's.
The story tells how a women found out who she really was all along.
Great book. Like all Oke novels, it does focus around being a good Christian, but I did not find that to be much of a problem. It's just a great story and a quick read with something very important to teach us about life. I find myself constantly remembering the lessons I learned from reading this book.
I also read this book as a teenager, and while I don't remember much of it from that time, I must have really liked it because I put together a collection of this author.
I recommend it as a book for all ages - teenagers on up.
Read if you are a Janette Oke fan. I have read everything of hers I have been able to find.
When Cassandra learns her new husband, a young doctor, plans to do his doctoring in his hometown on the western frontier, she is filled with uncertainties.
A good book to curl up on next to a cozy fire. I don't have a fire but I curl up with lots of blankets!
Loved this book! Fun, quick read.
The only daughter of a noted Montreal physician and educator, Cassandra Dell Winston inherited all the opportunities of Eastern society and affluence. Everything in her life had been cared for by her doting parents, and if she married wisely, the best of society would remain hers. There had never been a reason to think of any other life. Promising young interns were frequent guests in Dr. Winston's home, and the future looked bright as Cassie surveyed the possibilities around the dinner table. But youthful infatuations are left behind as she comes to know a serious, conscientious young doctor with an outstanding career before him.
But when he discloses his intention of doctoring in his home-town on the Western frontier, she is filled with uncertainties. If she goes with him, will love keep her there? Dare she pray that it would only be temporary, that after a time he'll return to a city practice?
Cassandra had never seen her father weep before. Now she understood what her choice could mean.
This is a great story about Cassandra's life, including her spiritual life.
