RETURN OF THE COWBOY DOCTOR
RETURN OF THE COWBOY DOCTOR (4.5) by Lacy Williams: Maxwell White has returned home to Bear Creek, Wyo., two years short of becoming a doctor. Hattie Powell, the local doctor’s daughter, has hopes of becoming a doctor herself and is not pleased when her father asks Max to assist him in his practice. Max attracts her, but she can’t afford to be distracted from her goal. As for Max, he doesn’t believe any woman can love him enough to marry him. Hattie’s story accurately depicts the kind of prejudice a female doctor would have faced in 1897. It is easy to have sympathy with the hero’s character, and the mention of his brothers will leave the reader eager to hear their stories in future books.
