    I really wasn't planning to like this books very much...and I didn't.

I hadn't read any of Janette Oke's books until last autumn, but they're quickly becoming favorites and I hope to read many more soon. :) (On a side note, my copy is much pretty than the Goodreads cover. ;) )

    I wasn't sure I would like this story. I had only read one book by Janette Oke and wasn't that impressed. But I picked it up at the library because it takes place in Canada. Right from the first page I found myself drawn into the story, enjoying the slow pace, the relaxing nature–even when events in the story were not relaxing–and the lovely characters. The story was an easy read, and the Christianity was woven in delightfully including the difference between knowing about God, and knowing God. I' I wasn't sure I would like this story.

    Another book that I read to Diana. We can't do much anymore after her stroke, so I read to her to spend time together. Diana has always loved to have someone to read to her - and I like to do just that. This book started slow with a worn story line: Wealthy doctor's daughter, wealthy doctor's daughter meets boy, wealthy doctor's daughter marries boy, wealthy doctor's daughter and new husband move west... I felt like the story dragged thru their lives, country doctor and young wife, raising child Another book that I read to Diana.

This book started slow with a worn story line: Wealthy doctor's daughter, wealthy doctor's daughter meets boy, wealthy doctor's daughter marries boy, wealthy doctor's daughter and new husband move west... I felt like the story dragged thru their lives, country doctor and young wife, raising children, children growing up, children marry and move away. Then the story began to get personal. The doctor husband died unexpectantly one day and the story turned to his wife coping with his death and with loneness. The book, is a story of life, if you generalize it, there is wisdom in these pages. We were going to rate this book three stars, but the last few chapters changed our mind. It's a four and a half, rounded to five for the ending.

    Sweet story of a full and complete life. The story begins with an old woman contemplating the move from the home her husband built for her that her children are insisting on. Then we swoop back to the dinner when she met her husband, and she barely noticed him. And the book proceeds to tell the story of her life. There is conflict, but it isn't huge, because it is resolved before it reaches that point. There is struggle but no great tragedy-- no children die, life is fairly straightforward.

    Pretty bare. There weren't very many details after the beginning, more like an annals entry. There wasn't much focus on any of the interesting points of the book: going west, having five children, learning how to effectively be a doctor. I'll take Mrs. Mike any day. Pretty bare.

    This is one of my top five favorite books of all time! I have read this book a few times. Once as a young teen, and twice as an adult! I was so intrigued back then about "growing up" and getting married and having children and raising them. I still am. Janette Oke really put the characters of this story together nicely. I found myself actually keeping up with each child's age, school year, marriage, and their own children as they married and explored life as well! I wanted to read even more.

I was so intrigued back then about "growing up" and getting married and having children and raising them. I still am. Janette Oke really put the characters of this story together nicely. I found myself actually keeping up with each child's age, school year, marriage, and their own children as they married and explored life as well! I wanted to read even more. Cassie Dell Winston is the daughter of a doctor/teacher and her family lives an affluent life in Montreal. She and her best friend spend their young days not only learning to be homemakers, but having dinner each week with a few guests that her father invites over. These are the young men he is teaching in his practice. These men are also looking to court a woman and marry her once his studies have been completed. Cassie and her friend each have their sights set on different men, but fate plays it's own song. Funny how things turn out. Cassie meets Samuel Smith and he courts her. They get through the painfully awkward stage of proposing and accepting that took place in those times (I can't imagine!) and they are married once Samuel completes his studies. Cassie thinks that Samuel is staying in Montreal. She soon finds out that he plans to move back out west to the frontier where he was brought up. Within himself, he knows God has given him a ministry to be a doctor there. The people on the frontier are in need of one. Being raised with a nice life style of comfort was all Cassie knew! She is horrified of the changes and scenery that she sees out west. She is lonely and homesick. She plans to go back home once the winter is over. But with each new baby that arrives, with each season that passes by, with each year that ticks by, maybe she will never get the chance to return home! Cassie has many life lessons to learn. She also wants to discover why her husband is always at peace, he is never uptight and tense like her! Why does he like living here? And for crying out loud, DO NOT ask her to help him with his medical patients, she CANNOT stand the sight of blood...she will get sick! Samuel is still patient despite everything. This book is a must read for everyone! I highly recommend it. You will leave with something inside of your heart and a different outlook on many things.

    So in the beginning it was a little bit hard for me to love this book! I actually didn't like the main character very much at first! But I ended up really liking this book! You actually get the see the characters whole life play out, which is cool, but way too sad! Overall I still loved it though, and got to the point that I couldn't put the book down! :)

    This book is great. It sometimes makes you want to cry if you have weak tearducts like me but in all truths its not really that sad. Its just telling a story about an old lady remembering her past. Just remember if you have weak tearducts have a box of tissues.

    They Called Her Mrs. Doc was a book that I found myself to enjoy...for the most part. I loved the small bits of romance near the beginning and the lessons that Virginia brought out that was needed for the main character, but there were moments about halfway through the book where I just couldn’t wait for it to end! This is the first book I have read of Janette Oke, and I did enjoy it most the time, but there were a couple of things I was not too keen on. One. The character Abigail.

You’d think as Cassie’s best friend, she would have one or two decent scenes where she was a kind, humble, mature girl, but I don’t remember that happening. She was a brat, who was never happy when someone said no to her. I hated how she was jealous when Cassie became engaged. It would have been preferred for her character to have not even been a part of the book. She also disappeared halfway through the book as well, so her character was not needed either. Two. I hated how much Cassie complained about her hair! I loved her character, but Oke brought up that “flaw” too much. I am a redhead myself, and I consider it a blessing to have a rare hair color bestowed upon my head. Three. I loved this book. I did. But there were moments I could wait for it to be over! I almost DNFd, until Virginia came into play. There were parts that didn’t matter to the storyline. Yes, I understand that it was a summary of Cassie’s life, but some stories were drab, boring, and not explained well or needed to be added to the book. I do intend on reading more of Janette Oke’s books, and while I enjoyed only about two thirds of this book, I believe her other books will be a much better read for me.

    Going from a somewhat privileged upbringing to the wilds of the west was not something that Cassie ever imagined happening. When you love someone you will do almost anything. Especially when you think that after a short time they will change their minds and go back home. I read this story along time ago when it first came out. It was a nice refreshing read.

The first chapter actually is of her when she is much older, contemplating a move to the city that her children are insisting on. She however, wants to stay at the home she's lived in most of her life. After that it takes us to a seventeen year old Cassie who is just starting to think about men for the first time. She is surrounded by young doctors to be thanks to her father who is a doctor and professor to prospective doctors. While initially her interests lay with an older man, she soon find a soul mate in the charming Samuel Smith. The agree to marry, but then she finds out that his biggest desire is to move back West to bring medicine to his hometown where there are no doctors. Cassie, a spoiled Eastern girl, loves him enough to go with him, but secretly wishes that he'll change his mind and move back East. The rest of the book follows their life together and that of their children. While the first part of the book follows a very slow timeline, with the birth of their first child, the book starts jumping all over the place with occasional longer chapters having some sort of story involving the family to them. These stories include visits to the East, the children's professional choices and marriage, and different medical procedures done by Samuel and sometimes Cassandra. As far as a struggle in the novel, the only hardship the book seems to have is Cassandra's struggle with staying in the West. But even that hardship is gone midway through the book. Otherwise, in this novel, there really is no plotline, its just the story of a woman. Oke's characters in this are also very believable. Cassandra starts out as being very headstrong and biased. Over the novel she grows and even learns to accept others for who they are. She also even overcomes her aversion to blood and most things medical, becoming known as Mrs Doc for her skills in healing small childhood mishaps and injuries of the children's pets. Like most of Oke's novels, the writing is very soft and unoffensive. She gives a lot of detail and paints a picture on what life was like in her different time periods. Although no time frame was given for this novel, it is easy to see it starts in the early 1900's and continues from there. Since Oke is a Christian writer I will relate a little bit of how that is expressed in this book. For the most part she shows the Christian attitude through the growth of the character Cassandra. It shows how she deals with her struggles and thoughts. I wouldn't call the book preachy at all, there is only one section where Oke goes into detail about how to include God into your life during a discussion between Cassandra and a friend. Some might wonder if any non-Christians would enjoy Okes book. I can personally attest to the fact that they will. Myself I find that even a non-Christian is able to appreciate how the characters in Oke's novel accept that they cannot change the world around them, but can strive to be better people themselves. It offers realistic ways of making yourself a better person, regardless if you include the religion or not. Not only that, but the stories in general are wonderful for any audience. They offer calm, peaceful relaxation in reading. My only complaint for Mrs. Doc would be the jumping around in time. I would have liked to see the book flow a bit better and include more information at each time frame in the book. Or jump a set number of years instead of one here, five there, two there.

    *Potential Spoilers* I don't know that I would call this a "romance" so much as historical Christian fiction, but there was a romantic element to the story. As with the majority of her books, if you are looking for anything beyond light kissing, this will not be for you. The story is set in eastern Canada in the latter part of the 1800s, and this fact alone was a bit of a pet peeve for me because you don't find that out until halfway into the book. Not that the time period itself was the problem, *Potential Spoilers* I don't know that I would call this a "romance" so much as historical Christian fiction, but there was a romantic element to the story.

The story is set in eastern Canada in the latter part of the 1800s, and this fact alone was a bit of a pet peeve for me because you don't find that out until halfway into the book. Not that the time period itself was the problem, but Mrs. Oke wrote the story just vague enough that you weren't able to have a frame of reference. The heroine is a young, somewhat spoiled, naive girl of 17 who longs for the day she will be courted but hasn't actually given much thought as to what she'll do when she actually is. She lives a life of privilege, being the daughter of a well known doctor, having servants and pretty much living a life of leisure other than school. When she does eventually meet her beau and husband-to-be, she has her first taste of the real world when her mother makes her learn to cook and sew. To say she's not at all happy about this is an understatement! Why, surely she'll have servants and cooks to do "menial labor" for her, just as her family has always had! Now imagine her surprise when her husband informs her they are moving to the "untamed wild west" of western Canada where he is from and plans on practicing medicine. ;-) The story really starts at this point, on their arrival in western Canada. It's rough, without privilege and your survival depends on no one but yourself. We see "Red" as her husband lovingly calls her, adapt to making a home for them, cooking, cleaning and eventually becoming a mother. We also see her forming a lifelong friendship with Virginia, a young mother who moves into town around the same time they do, who teaches her the invaluable lesson that knowing ABOUT God and knowing God PERSONALLY are two different things. The story is told almost exclusively from the heroines point of view as we watch her become a mother, grow older and learn valuable life lessons but especially that "things" are just fleeting in this life, that what is really important is your family and your relationship with God. The story is slow in parts and skips over huge sections of her life. At times it reads more like a memoir than a fictional story. What I did like was reading about a young, spoiled girl who blossoms into a wife and mother I could respect. Her marriage is loving and devoted, despite their early hardships and when, towards the end, Mr. Doc passes away unexpectedly, I grieved right along with her. The ending of the story brought tears to my eyes. Overall, I liked the story. It was easy to pick up and put down when life got too busy to read but still interesting enough to keep reading when I was able to sit down and relax. If you're a fan of Janette Oke, this is on the tame side, even for her. If you're not a fan, I'd most likely advise you to pass on this one. B-/3 stars

    The book was so page turning. Although, it was hard for me to really realize when Cassandra was so old, and it all happened so fast. This book is great for teenage girls.

    This one was a little dull and too preachy and seemed to be missing a lot of the details that give a story heart.

This book follows one woman's life story from her teenage years through her old age as she transformed from a spoiled rich girl to the wife of a frontier doctor. I found Cassandra to be rather annoying as a married woman who wouldn't tell her oblivious husband how she was feeling and wouldn't decide to make the best of the adventure of learning to live without servants and modern conveniences. I also found it strange that absolutely nobody, especially her mother, ever tried to prepare her for what she was getting into by moving West. Her mother even started a conversation once, asking if she really wanted to marry the young doctor and move out to the frontier. But then she let the conversation drop as soon as Cassandra said she loved him and would follow him as a submissive wife should. What mother wouldn't discuss the details of what it would be like and what she would be giving up and what she would need to do to survive? The parents came off as very ambivalent towards their daughters' future. There was also a lot of buildup about the hardships she would face or was facing but I thought there should have been more actual hardship. Not having operas or plays is not true hardship. The rain ruining your hat is not a hardship. Wouldn't a young, frontier doctor have struggled with paying his bills during the years he was first starting his practice? Where were the droughts or severe winters and bad illnesses? Where were the nefarious characters? What I liked about so many of the Women of the West books was the description of the financial difficulties and all the hard work the women had to do just to scrape a living and keep food on the table and deal with dangerous men. The only hard work in this book seemed to be child-rearing and housekeeping until she started to help her husband with his medical duties and the book didn't give very many details of that. This story had every opportunity to include adventure, conflict, and humor but instead was just boring and preachy and disappointing.

    "They Called Her Mrs. Doc" is a Christian historical set in the Canadian West during the pioneer time period. It's a part of the Women of the West series, but the books aren't connected to each other so you can read them in any order. These novels are quick reads.

The setting and historical detail created a nice yet still somewhat vague (as to exact time period) backdrop for the events. The story followed Cassandra's life from seventeen-years-old until she's very old, so we get more of an overview of her life than a good look at her during one period of her life. Her early struggle was to adjust to living in an "uncivilized" town where she didn't know anyone or fit in. Then she had to learn to sometimes help her husband and the townspeople (when her husband wasn't available) medically despite the fact she gets nauseous at the sight of blood. The Christian element was woven in as a natural part of the story, and it wasn't a big part of the story. Cassandra realizes that she knows about God but doesn't know God on a personal basis, so she decides to change that and then let Him change her attitude about her circumstances. Married sex was implied (as babies were born). There was a very minor amount of "he cussed" style of bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable novel.

    This is one of Janette Oke's Christian historical romance novel.

    Thoughts on the entire series. Overall, Women of the West is my favorite series (that I’ve read so far) by Oke, where I really reveled in what the author had to bring in all of her sweet, warm, and simplistic glory. However, the books aren’t only warm fuzzies, as Oke does deal with some tough, and even some potentially controversial, issues, giving the reader some points to chew on but doing it in her warm style.

    Janette Oke's 'Love Comes Softly' series was one of my favorite series growing up. I've given them to Abby as well, and she likes them, too. But this book, like so many of Janette Oke's stand-alone books, just isn't great. It covers the entire life of a young woman named Cassandra from her marriage until her widowhood as she moves to the west and starts life with her young doctor husband.

    I first learned of Janette Oke's books after watching the "Love Comes Softly" series on the Hallmark Channel. Janette Oke has several books set in the late 1800's. I have almost read all of them. "They Called Her Mrs. Doc" is the most recent one. This book is about a young, wealthy girl who marries her young doctor and follows him to a small, uncivilized town by Calgary. Follow her struggles as she goes from comforts of Montreal to the wind and dust of the West.

    This is my second book by this author. They are just good wholesome books with women depending on God and finding the inner strength to do what they need to do. The men in the stories are also very kind and hard workers. Cassie grew up on a big city where she enjoyed the arts. Her Dr. husband took her to a very small western town where she didn't know what to do with herself until she put her trust in God and her changed her attitude.

    It seems I’ve read this one before, but it didn’t seem familiar. Perhaps that because it was felt a little underwhelming. It had all the classic elements of Oke’s “new adventures in the West” gentle romances, but I just didn’t connect with these characters. The book tried to cover a lot of territory so the children all sort of started running together, which probably didn’t add to my enjoyment. Overall, not a bad read but not my favorite.

    Janette Oke has always been a favorite author of mine. This book just renewed by love of her work. They called her Mrs. Doc, is told by Cassie as it takes you through her life as a child into womanhood and to late adulthood. As you read, you will watch Cassie mature and accept Christ as her savior. It is truly a beautiful piece of reading. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy historical fiction that is christian based as well.

    When Cassandra is smitten with a man from the west. She moves not knowing what will happen. She soon discovers the hardships of being a doctors wife. When trouble cripples her husband. Weak-stomached Cassi must be her husbands hands. This book is one of the best Oke has written, funny and heart-warming.

    Love this book by Janette Oke! It is now my favorite book that she has wrote! It helped me with several of the spirit challenges that I have been struggling with lately! For those of you who love Janette Oke this is a fabulous book and I guarantee you that you will love it! And for those of who have never read a book from her this is a fabulous first book to start reading from her!

    I really enjoyed this story of a young lady who married within the first couple chapters of the book and then the story goes on to tell of her struggles as a young wife who is lonely and finds joy in serving others and having peace in Christ. She goes on to raise five children see her grandchildren raised and even meet great-grandchildren. I can only hope I will stay faithful as she did.

    I didn't enjoy this Oke book as much as I have others. I really liked the first half, but then it just kind of turned into a chronicle of what happened next with very little emotion--and very few things happening. It seemed like she was trying to make the book a certain number of pages. So she told the story, but then kept adding more to reach her page allotment.

    I was just a kid when I first read this book. I read it again as an adult and still enjoyed it. It is a simply written youth book, with a sweet story. When my brain is tired, and I just want an easy read, this is the book I pull off the shelf. It's a fun look in the developement of the west.
