Christian Fiction with Sizzle: The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund
|The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund|
Bethany House Publishers
There are quite a few talented new authors that combine great stories of faith with awesome messages and have the ability to weave a toe-tingling romance throughout. One of these inspy writers is Jody Hedlund. You might think with titles such as The Preacher's Bride and The Doctor's Lady (a story of a missionary couple) there isn't going to be much in the way of a romance but let me tell you if you think that you will be as gladly mistaken as I certainly was.
With her sophomore release Hedlund has proven that she is indeed an author to watch. I thought that The Preacher's Bride was amazing but The Doctor's Lady has more than passed my expectations and earned spot in my permanent collection. With her ability to pull you in with just a few lines and that instantaneous tension between Eli and Priscilla I couldn't help but read the entire book in less than a day. The story runs the gamut of emotions from fear, shock, anger, to humor and love but it doesn't end with an unrealistic happily ever after. It leaves you feeling a sense of hope for Priscilla and her family.
Every second of this story is a joy to read and I recommend it to anyone who likes romance. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it had to end. Jody Hedlund has captured the spirit of the American frontier in the most compelling of ways. I really hope that I don't have to wait a year before Jody's next book!
