Publisher's Summary

Already well-versed in the natural healing properties of herbs and oils, Jennie Pickett longs to become a doctor. But the Oregon frontier of the 1870s doesn't approve of such innovations as women attending medical school. To leave grief and guilt behind, as well as support herself and her challenging young son, Jennie cares for an elderly woman using skills she's developed on her own. When her patient dies, Jennie discovers that her heart has become entangled with the woman's widowed husband, a man many years her senior. Their unlikely romance may lead her to her ultimate goal - but the road will be winding and the way forward will not always be clear. Will Jennie find shelter in life's storms? Will she discover where healing truly lives?

Through her award-winning, layered storytelling, New York Times best-selling author Jane Kirkpatrick invites listeners to leave behind their preconceived notions about love and life as they, along with Jennie, discover that dreams may be deferred - but they never really die. Based on a true story.

Great Book

The voice of the narrator seemed to match the main character well and the narrator did a good job transitioning to other characters. This is what I anticipated life being like on the trail at this time and seemed like this could have been a real story.

It was interesting but depressing

I was frustrated with the main character for the first half of the book. Overall, the book was pretty depressing, though, it was a lot like real life. I would not put myself through the listen again. There were some interesting historical facts in the book about women in medicine.

All she left behind

This story is depressing all the way through. Not up to her other works. Not inspiring.
