  • Terrific story!

    Julia Bernay knows exactly what she wants to do with her life--she's going to be accepted to medical school and become a doctor so she can then go to Africa as a medical missionary. Michael Stephenson is establishing his career as a barrister and planning to court the daughter of a viscount in order to improve his social standing and his sister's. When an accident leaves Michael severely injured, Julia is able to save his life, only later finding out that he is one of the barristers working on a case that could shut down the very medical college she wants to attend. Julia asks Michael to tutor her in Latin--her weakest subject on her upcoming entrance exams--and as he does, he finds her changing his mind about the lawsuit, his plans in life, and God...but honor and circumstances stand in the way of them exploring their growing feelings. This is such a great series! I love reading about the Bernay sisters, all so different from each other. The setting (Victorian England) is so interesting; I really liked seeing how someone from Julia's station lived, as well as the poorer classes she tried to help. I felt like the characters--not just Michael and Julia but others as well--were well-developed and intriguing. The plot moved well and definitely made me want to keep reading! Highly enjoyable! I received a copy of the book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

  • 1880's Female Drs; Connections to George Muller

    The heart leads where one least expects, against all odds. This is what Julia Bernay and Michael Stephenson discover in 1881 London. Julia saves Michel’s life in an “underground” accident. Too soon she discovers he is part of the firm suing to close the college for women doctors, the very college Julia hopes to join the next year. I found Julia a little presumptuous in her assessment of doctors who already had their licenses when she had as yet to go to medical school. It was gratifying to see that she was willing to challenge some outdated medical notions, but I personally would have liked Julia to be a little more humble in her approach towards people. There were plenty of spiritual lessons packed into the book. One observation particularly resounded with me. “This room was stuffed with objects, yet there was not one that hinted at spiritual inquiry. She actually felt sorry for them, despite these outward trappings of success. Without a spiritual life, what was the point?” It was neat to read of the connection made with George Müller’s orphanages, and some of the real-life lessons he taught the children. Said Mr. Müller, “if an answer from God is a long time coming, the best way to pass the time is to keep busy helping someone else.” Sometimes the lessons seemed to be the main point of the book, as opposed to fit into it seamlessly. Others may disagree. Overall, still a good read. A couple of great, unexpected twists in this book. These really enhanced the storyline and message. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley, with no positive review required. This did not influence my opinions, for which I am solely responsible.
