Title: Forever Kind of Woman
Author: Susan Payne
Genre: Women’s Fiction – Historical Western
Why would a celebrated female surgeon go all the way to Texas to marry an average doctor? A secret she could not tell and a plan she couldn’t give up.
Tess felt pretty good about her week's work and sat on the back porch, watching the sun go down. Looking over to the sheriff's house, she saw he was striped to the waist, washing his underarms then his torso. She was mesmerized by the long strokes he made over his tan skin, the muscles bunching and stretching as he washed then rinsed each portion of his body.
She realized she was staring when he went to push down his trousers to bare the rest of his body for ablutions. Lowering her gaze, she moved quickly into her darkened kitchen, making her way upstairs feeling the heat of a blush on her face.
She chided herself for her foolishness. She had seen naked men as cadavers, during surgeries and examinations, at much closer quarters. Why should this man be so much more interesting to her? He was attractive and an excellent specimen of manhood, but would that make her heart beat faster merely thinking of him becoming naked in front of her?
What makes your featured book a must-read?
This story shows how dependent on men women were meant to be. Rare even to have a bank account or own land in most states. The more than capable woman had to use men to attend university and become a doctor. The fact she chose to help female patients didn’t help and they were the most underserved. Early study of what was to be known as ‘stalkers’ is also discussed. Finding a man with liberal enough thinking to become her life mate was a happy happenstance.
