Historical Romance Fiction

Priscilla White knows she'll never be a wife or mother and feels God's call to the mission field in India. Dr. Eli Ernest is back from Oregon Country only long enough to raise awareness of missions to the natives before heading out West once more. But then Priscilla and Eli both receive news from the mission board: No longer will they send unmarried men and women into the field.
Left scrambling for options, the two realize the other might be the answer to their needs. Priscilla and Eli agree to a partnership, a marriage in name only that will allow them to follow God's leading into the mission field. But as they journey west, this decision will be tested by the hardships of the trip and by the unexpected turnings of their hearts.

Great Read! by Carrie Daws on 11/7/11
Rating

Bold heroine that I could largely relate to and a determined hero with flaws -- both very lovable characters that I can imagine meeting in every day life. Well, at least life in 1836. The scene is two single missionaries with hearts for reaching the "heathens" -- the Mission Board's requirement: you must be married to be sent. From the beginning, it was easy to see both these likable characters would be perfect for each other. But the twists of the story are believable. Although the struggles of their physical journey were largely foreign to those of us in the 21st century, the mental, emotional and spiritual journeys were very relatable as they found ways to overcome the challenges of the Oregon Trail. The romance was clean, but realistic as Jody Hedlund presented two people who agree to a platonic marriage to get to the mission field then find themselves attracted to the other, then falling in love.
