Read from October 12 to 25, 2011

I loved the story line of her triumph as a woman doctor, cringed when she worked for little or no pay, and felt it was all done well in context of that time. However, the overall story had some gaps. It seemed like the longing for her father was played down in the middle of the book and surfaced without a building passion towards the end when she found him. I wanted to know more about Miss Kerry and what made her return. She was a hero in this story. I also enjoyed learning about Montreal and the surrounding area in Canada at that time in history, which was completely new to me. Overall it was a good book. If they gave half stars I would give it a 3.5. The writing was so fluid it pulled me along a not quite riveting, but indeed enjoyable story.
