Entwine yourself within the historical Liberian jungle adventures of early missionaries, sacrificing much to bring a knowledge of God to the Native tribes within. William, still grieving over the horrible deaths of the aunt and uncle who raised him, plus , more recently, the lass of his newly married wife....all to the uncivilized jungles of Liberia, awaited his newly assigned companions. He was not allowed to return alone to the depths of the jungle to reestablish a church and school there, but must be accompanied by another for safety reasons. He had enjoyed the hospitality of a missionary couple in an established compound, but he feared what would happen to his small compound if he didn't return shortly. His new shockingly ill-fitted companions finally arrived. Surely this was a mistake! The Mission Board would surely see the impropriety of their mistake.  Dr. Mary O'Hara and Clara Smith would not be deterred. The could not possibly endure the vastness and wiles of jungle life saying nothing about the impossible journey in getting there! Adamantly refusing at first to take them, William, reluctantly capitulated after realizing their stubborn determination to go without him...He must at least see to their safety before causing the Board to see the impossible situation this was. Many challenges and hardships occurred. So many unexpected situations, not understood by those raised in a totally different world.  Both William and Mary learned severe lessons they never thought possible. The strive which arose between them was easily agitated. How much longer could they bear one another's association? Only seldom does the story slightly lag. The animosity between the two seemed to linger a little too long, however, the story flowed well from one scene to another. The book cover appeared too casual and the man's hair appears more chestnut colored than black as his is portrayed to be. For one living in the out if doors, his skin is too light.  The woman's hair definitely does not appear as red as it is repeatedly said to be. The characters seem lifelike and the terrain is described well. This book is well worth reading. Except for the few discrepancies, it is very well written and presented.  I review this book, giving it a Four and a Half Stars rating. I was sent this book for an honest review, of which I have given.

As a Loveinspired The Doctor¿s Mission more than hits the mark. It is a sweet romance that still has titillating tension. The characters are well-developed and likeable, and the reader roots for the characters to get together. As a historical, the research shines and is woven into the story so that the reader is drawn in, instead of being hit over the head by the information. Its most striking element is that it is some of the finest writing I¿ve read. It is spot on for the time period. If you like tender romances with a spiritual element I would highly recommend this book. If you just want to read a well-written book this is the one.
