Follow your heart, Ada-girl.
Ada Beal heard her father’s voice in her head as she always did in times like this, in times when she felt less than she should.
˃˃˃ Ada Beal inherited her father’s love for practicing medicine. . .
But after his death, her attempts to doctor at the hospital where her father had worked were cut short by her father’s arrogant, jealous associates at every turn. She knew they’d never let a woman practice medicine at ‘their’ hospital, and it fueled her determination to find a way. She knew she needed to find a husband, a man that would accept her aspirations to be a doctor, and she knew she’d never find it unless she looked elsewhere.
But what man would be willing to marry her, and also encourage her God-given abilities in medicine? She felt helpless, until she saw a headline in The Matrimonial Journal. . .
Seeking wife to partner with me in ministry to the gold miners in California.
˃˃˃ Jack Hauser was a preacher with a difference.
His years ministering in the tough Kansas prairies had seen to that. But he also had another dream, one where he would travel to California, to preach to the gold miners who were trying to strike it rich.
When a letter arrives from his father, it bears mixed news. Without hiding his disappointment, his father agrees to fund his travels to California on one condition. Jack must find a wife. But decent, God-fearing women were hard to find in Kansas territory. Until a conversation with one of the store owners in town sets Jack on an unexpected course.
“The Matrimonial Journal” offered a chance to advertise for a wife, someone back east who would jump at the chance to come to California and make a new life for herself, with a husband, a home and children.
But what sort of woman would answer an advertisement in such a publication?
Could it be that Jack might be advertising for more trouble than he expected?
Will Ada’s passion for medicine jeopardize their marriage, and in turn put Jack’s relationship with his father at risk?
Can a tragic mine accident make Jack realize how blessed he is to have Ada as his wife?
And will Ada’s dream to be a doctor come true?
