My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Series "Heart of the frontier" book #1, Treasured Grace by Tracie Peterson
I like reading this author and the story of Grace is one you don't want to miss.
Three young women Grace-Hope and Mercy head west on the Oregon trail, Grace marries The Rev Martindale to be a marriage in name only as he needs a wife only to go to the mission field.
He was a man that seemed to be full of himself and was always "Right", the sisters did not seem to miss him much when he died early on and was buried along the way, Now the sisters hope to stay at the Whitman mission over the winter as many have been ill and died when Measles affected the train.
Grace is a healer and works helping many but while at the mission the good doctor does not want her helping him. His ways are different from hers. At the mission they also meet a tribe of indians called Cayuse , many were not happy with the good doctor and thought he was killing their people with poison. There is tension between the mission and the indians.
This is a complex story and you will enjoy reading how the girls live and work at the mission. Grace meets a man named Alex that becomes a great friend over time.
