To enter the contest to win a copy of this book simply post a comment and make sure to leave me a way to contact you if you win. The comment needs to pertain to the topic of women working in traditionally male careers. In particular, what do you think about books where the heroine has a "man's job"? Do you like reading these types of stories? Why or why not?
My ten cents... I think this is becoming a trend lately. Women want to read about strong female characters. However, historically most women weren't in these types of roles. I suppose reading about the lives of typical women would be boring, so why not write about the women who managed to do the unthinkable and work in a "man's" field? It seems kind of feminist to me, but it does make for an interesting story. That said...um, I'm not really sure what I said, but there you have it!
A small town in 1890's Texas is up in arms when their new doctor turns out to be a woman.
About the book:
Gooding, Texas, is about to gain a double blessing—a veterinarian and a doctor. But when siblings Enoch and Taylor Bestman arrive, the discovery that Taylor is a lady doctor has the town up in arms. Especially Karl Van der Vort, the town blacksmith, who becomes the first patient...against his will.
Though hesitant to believe in Taylor's doctoring skills, Karl finds himself oddly protective of this surprising woman who dares to drive about town on her own, wearing the color red, for heaven's sake! Taylor, on the other hand, wants only to prove that doctoring is her life's calling, despite the town's opposition. The result? Pride meets attraction head-on, and sparks begin to fly.
