Read my first novel by father and daughter! I love the character of Cheney Duvall, M.D. A female doctor in San Francisco! Her first position at a hospital and her friend who is an orphan and works along side of her, is looking for his real parents. It is an interesting story at a time when a female doctor is just barely being recognized as smart aside from being an emotional being. Cheney's biggest test at the time is to trust God and take it slow at falling in love. I look forward to more of th ...more

Gilbert Morris is one of those "old favorite" authors for me. I have read his books since I was in high school. I enjoy them. They are light reading, rather formulaic, but interesting enough plots and characters.

This book was from the Cheney Duvall series - a medical drama with a bit of romance thrown in. I have read most of the books in this series, but I have read them over many years. after each one, I think, "This is just dragging on too long." But, several years will pass, and I will pick u

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this particular book. The details that the Morris' put are much appreciated. Cheney Duvall is a doctor, and I enjoyed how detailed Mr. and Mrs. Morris get in describing the treatments she performs on her patients. The developing love story captivated me, and left me wanting to read the next book in this series.

I love the setting. I love the history. I love the introduction of Dr. Walker. Cheney takes a dive off the deep end and could use a humbling about 5 chapters earlier than she does. Still, the series is compelling and enjoyable and while Cheney does occasionally drive me a little crazy I do still like the overall concept behind the story.

joy *the clean-reader extraordinaire*
a witty, interesting addition to the series. nice clean fiction, a little light on substance but not overwhelmingly so. fascinating view of post-civil war san fransisco. terrible cover art, as usual.

Super good! This book was a little slower than the others in the series but, still good. Cheney performs a lot of medical operations but I like that. :^)

Really like this one! Did not like the cover illustration, though- dress did not look right for the period.

Really enjoying this series. In this book there was finally great attention given to Cheney's work in medicine.
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.

Set in San Francisco, gives history of department stores that are discussed in this story. Is "Gump's" still there?

Love this series! I'm re-reading it with my preteen daughter (who reads at a college freshman level according to a reading and comprehension diagnostic).

Out of all the other 5 books this 6th book is the one I am liked the most. I can't wait to start the next one.

Finally Dr. Duvall actually spent the majority of this book performing a Dr.'s work. The mystery starts to become more clear as Shiloh seeks to find out who his parents were. A story well told!

“She is wonderful,” Cheney said a little breathlessly. “But I can see that long rides on her would be tiring. She doesn’t just walk along, does she?”
“No,” Shiloh said in a low tone, his eyes alight. “She dances.” He was staring directly at Cheney, and she lowered her eyes and blushed.”
