Every Dream Has A Price--and for Doctor Mary Ferguson, that price is high. It's 1908 on the western prairie, and Mary has attained her dream. She's one of the first women doctors, and she's struggling hard for acceptance. The choices are clear cut--pursue her hard earned career, or fall in love and follow her heart. At this time and in this place, women can't have both. Bu Every Dream Has A Price--and for Doctor Mary Ferguson, that price is high. It's 1908 on the western prairie, and Mary has attained her dream. She's one of the first women doctors, and she's struggling hard for acceptance. The choices are clear cut--pursue her hard earned career, or fall in love and follow her heart. At this time and in this place, women can't have both. But when she meets David, a man trying to find balance between his Indian mother and his white father, she longs for more. David is returning to his people on the western prairies. He doesn't fully understand how the way of life he remembers from when he was a child has changed. Government policies have forced his Blackfoot people onto reserves, and there are troubling laws being enforced. He thinks longingly of Mary, but he's sure their lives are too disparate to ever come together. This is the third stand alone book in the Western Prairie Brides Series, which began with Lantern In The Window. Mary's mother Annie was a mail order bride. She married Noah sight unseen. LANTERN IN THE WINDOW tells their love story. Mary is their oldest child. Annie's sister Bets is deaf. Her romance with a handsome and conflicted North West Mounted policeman is told in SILENT LIGHT, SILENT LOVE. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR: Why did you write this particular book? My mother grew up on the Canadian prairies. I asked her once if there were any women doctors, and she shook her head. "Oh no, no one would have trusted a woman doctor in those days. Women got married, raised a family, cooked, cleaned." When I researched the early 1900's, I came across a horrifying government decree dealing with the native tribes. So what could I do but put these two situations together? Who's your favorite character in Medicine Woman? That would be Magpie, the impossible little boy who trails around after David in the Blackfoot village. I fell in love with him because he refused to be a small sub character in the story. He demanded that he have an important role, the scamp! I tried to incorporate romance, history, tragedy and laughter in this historical medical romance.

    Dr Quinn-ish story based in Canada Book 3 of the Western Prairie Brides series lead character is Dr Mary Ferguson who faces the prejudice of "women doctors". She meets a young man who speaks the King's English and is 100% gentleman. His name is David and he is half Indian. He is returning to his homeland. This is a love story, well told. I did deduct a star for the multiple typo errors that permeate Bobby Hutchinson books.

I did deduct a star for the multiple typo errors that permeate Bobby Hutchinson books. I have read all three books in this series and ALL of them have this problem. I have to wonder why an author researchs, develops a solid plot and writes a good story and then not complete the work needed to raise the level to a great story. It's like a woman shopping for a great outfit, having her hair and nails done, having the perfect jewelry and accessories. Even had her makeup done. ... This is an evening, dress to the nines event. And she wears her dirty garden clogs. I know some readers have no problems with these kinds of errors. I'm just not one of them.

    Book 5 in the Prairie Bride series. I read the first two books in this series and was still able to figure out this one. Mary is a doctor,following in her Uncle's footsteps. Women were generally frowned upon as doctors back then. A train accident brings David into her life. He is coming back to Canada to find his mother. He is half Indian. With the struggles of Mary as a doctor and David as half Indian, can the two overcome this and live together as one? I really loved the books in this series a Book 5 in the Prairie Bride series.

    Prejudice A beautiful love story, that shows no matter when or where prejudice is alive and well! If you are a woman doing a man’s job or Indian, we still battle the same prejudice! A hundred years can come and go but people still, suffer hate and prejudice, by the color of your skin or sex! In this tale you will feel the pain and resentment people suffer daily and how they deal with it!

    Interesting story of a tumultuous time of American history Good plot that kept me engaged, historically accurate tale about the injustices of the pioneer days, but also gracious and clear that there were those in that era who chose to honor all cultures, faiths, and genders. . . May we do the same in our current society.

    Wonderful stories I stumbled across the first of this series in a Christmas collection. I was hooked on the first one when I discovered it was set in Medicine Hat as my Mum’s cousin lives there. But then the characters developed and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. Can you continue this story sometime please

    Perceptive I was especially impressed with the Native 'trial', the way each person spoke of the effect of the actions of the young men. The intent to teach instead of punish was quite thought provoking. Of course the love story was well done.

It also taught me that Canada and America have both dealt with the aboriginal populations of their countrie's in the same saddening way, something I had not been aware of before reading this.

    This was a very good read which I found very entertaining the author put a lot of thought into her writing of this giving vivid detail of a time in history when things were hard for those that were different.

People being prejudice has and sadly will always be in our world for Mary it was bitter sweet being a doctor was her dream she might even had been the first of her kind.. She worked hard to make her dream come true only to have people turn against her demanding a male doctor. She had not only patients against but doctors, nurses and the hospital as well. At the same time she met David he is dealing with his own demons trying to live in a white man’s world isn’t easy when you are what they call a half breed. Being taken to England by his father when he was a very young boy, striped from his home land, his mother and his people was just too much for a little boy to understand. He lived his life as his father wanted never forgetting where he came from and knowing he would always go back to his people. This is really a story inside a story of two people who had a dream, their families, along with their love as they fight the prejudice against them and their kind. Mary really is a wonderful loving character who really just wants to help others by healing them. She is sweet, kind, loving, and helpful. I really think she would love to find a man to love but with her job there just isn’t room for that. Never would she find a man who would be understanding to give her the time she needs to be a doctor. Men wanted women home, cooking, cleaning and taking care of their many children. She has many trials she most overcome as she faces many issues before she will truly be the person she needs and wants to be. David is another bump in the many roads she must travel. Oh he is handsome, kind and lord knows she would love to belong to him but he seems to have other thoughts and just may break her heart. David is a find man any women would be proud to have that is unless you lived in 1908 than you might find he isn’t good enough for you. What I saw was a man in a lot of pain from his past trying to make a future for him and his people. He never understood his father or his religion and really wanting nothing to do with any of it. He finds his self in a world torn in half not belonging to either and neither of those worlds wanting him. He meets Mary who he is drawn to but knowing he could never ask her to live with his people giving up all she knows and wants. My heart really went out to both of these along with their families. There are some trying times ahead not only for these two but for their families as well. Love found, love lost, love found only to be lost again. For me this story pulled me in lost me pulled me in again. There are so very interesting reading with a wonderful plot and a few twists. If you are looking for a sweet, heartbreaking, loving wonderful romance you have found it. I do have a few issues with the time frame of a few things the author wrote. I am not sure some of the things happen in a time that she wrote but I feel they happen later on in history. It really isn’t a big issue but I think more research might have been needed to make this a truly historical romance. One should remember this is a fiction so really anything can be said or done since it is make believe. There was a time or two when I thought things could have been left out and it would have made it a smoother read. What I did find was a delightful plot with so much pain, anger, and sorrow, learning to forgive, starting over, and learning to go for your dreams no matter what. I love the characters and supporting characters they brought so much to the story. I felt the author took on some touchy issues with class, style and turned it into a touching, loving wonderful read delivering it in a smooth and touching way. This was really a wonderful entertaining read that I feel most would truly enjoy. If you are looking for a sweet clean read with a HEA you have found it.

She shares a practice with her uncle, but patients keep leaving to go to a man doctor. Then she is dismissed from practicing at the hospital when trumped up charges are leveled against her. David doesn't want to get married or have children because he doesn't want his prodigy to face the stigma that he did growing up. Will Mary finally take a chance on love or will she continue to put being a doctor first? Will David realize how much he cares for Mary or will he stay determined to stay single and teach the children of his tribe how to live in the white man's world? Ms. Hutchinson has written a wonderful book blending romance and some of the trials that Native Americans had to deal with. If you have a couple of hours to spare this would be a great way to spend the time.

Since she graduated, she learned a lot through her uncle James, and knew she'd caused him to lose another patient who would go elsewhere. It was worse working at the hospital where many doctors and a few nurses regarded her with disdain. As she returned from her walk , stung with the rejection of the lost of another patient, she learned that two trains had collided and help was needed so she ran for the office and prayed that her uncle was not on it. David Brownwell had returned home after his christian minister father had taken him from his mother back to England when he was four. He was a half breed and the school boys didn't like him for the color of his skin and one day he vowed to return to his Native people and learned their ways but vowed further still he would never marry and make his children go through the horror he went through. Then he was thrown from the train and into darkness....

    Couldn't put this one down! I have enjoyed reading each book in this series. With this one we get the story of Mary, Annie and Noah's oldest daughter. The author really captures the essence of what it must have been like for a woman trying to do a job that was considered a man's job. David's story was interesting as well. Anyone who enjoys historical romance that provides well fleshed characters and a strong plot will enjoy this series. Couldn't put this one down! I have enjoyed reading each book in this series.

    Great story This book showed what women and men who were different went through when they tried to do the unconstitutional things their hearts called them to do. The prejudice of people in the early days in both the United States and Canada made it difficult, but the strong minded prevailed. The love and faithfulness of the families and couples makes the story interesting to read.
