Hedlund‘s thoroughly captivating story is set against the backdrop of need, danger, desperation and suspense. The characterization, research and emotions weave a wonderful story that will leave readers rooting for the couple through each stage of the journey.

Although the mission board doesn’t normally accept single woman, Priscilla White is sure that her impeccable references will change their minds. While waiting, she meets Dr. Eli Ernest, who wants to provide medical care to the Nez Perce, and they do not hit it off. Then the mission board rules that no person will be approved unless they are married. Priscilla and Eli reluctantly agree: they must get married. The journey ahead will test their allegiance to the call, to God, and to each other. (BETHANY HOUSE, Sep., 384 pp., $14.99)
