Enter to Win "The Doctor's Lady" by Jody Hedlund

Have you ever had the desire to be a missionary?  When I was a little girl and the missionaries would come and give their testimonies, I thought it would be so exciting to go and serve them.  Yet, as I grew up the Lord led me in other directions.     Even so, my heart still goes out to those that have given up family time, luxury of homes with running water, electricity and hot baths, not to mention a private bathroom. 
If you would enjoy reading about a young woman that had her heart set on being a missionary, then skip on over to

The Doctor's Lady
Jody Hedlund
Bethany House Publishers

Priscilla White KNEW God wanted her
to be a missionary. NOT A WIFE.
Then, the missionary board declares
THE ONLY WAY she can serve
is to be MARRIED.
Now, married IN NAME ONLY,
her epic journey west will test
her spirit...and the new
LONGINGS of her heart. 
~ from the back cover.


The Doctor's Lady is the fictionalized story of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, a young missionary couple who traveled to Oregon country in 1836 to start a mission among the native Nez Perce. The Whitmans traveled with the Spaldings - a pastor and his wife - and Narcissa and Eliza Spalding are famous for being the first two white women to cross the Continental Divide and make it all the way to the far west. Narcissa wrote a very detailed diary, and drawing on those writings as well as the various historical accounts of their life, Jody Hedlund has constructed a vivid picture of the life of this incredible woman and her companions. In order to breathe life into her characters, Hedlund fictionalized the account just enough to speculate on what is not fully known, and gave the characters new names (Marcus and Narcissa Whitman become Eli and Priscilla Earnest); even so, this book is highly accurate as verified by Narcissa's diary.
