Elena, Woman of Courage

(1 customer review)


The Roaring ’20s was a time of great change, when women raised their hemlines and bobbed their hair. Watch a young love blossom in this sweet romance.

When Elena Yeates settles into a small western town as the newest doctor, a few problems arise. The town is not ready for a female doctor, let alone one so strong and independent. She must struggle against the prejudice to establish her new practice. As she fights to prove herself, the town’s most eligible bachelor finds it a challenge to see if he can win her heart.

    I have been watching John grow up over the course of the series, and am so glad we get his story. Elena is a probably my favorite of the female characters. She is a doctor, and this time period woman are not respected in the field. I love her spunk, her ambition and perseverance. She does not let anyone get her down and will do whatever needs to be done to keep the people in town healthy. John is smitten with her, but with his fear of commitment just can’t admit even to himself the depth of his feelings. These two dance around their relationship until John runs from his feelings and goes to work in a mine. Will he be back? Will Elena be waiting or will she have moved on? In true Linda Weaver Clarke fashion, this story is full of love and community, good values and strong faith. It is a pleasure to listen to.

    Carolyn Kashner continues the narration. She has such a wide variety of voices, and in this book used men, women and children. I loved the teenage girls as well as the miners. A well developed repertoire making the story entertaining to hear.
