DOCTOR IN PETTICOATS (SOPHIE’S DAUGHTERS) by Mary Connealy is a wonderfully delightful Inspirational Historical Romance set in Texas and Montana in the 1879’s. This is the first in the Sophie’s Daughters series.It is well written with depth, detail and humor. It has faith, family, romance, redemption,and forgiveness in one’s self. The plot has two stories weaving together in reference to Sophie’s daughters. We see characters from some of Ms. Connealy’s other stories reappearing. The characters are strong, determined, full of faith, independent, selfless,and witty.The hero is a doctor who is guilt ridden by the war and it atrocities. He walks away from military life wounded physically and emotionally after a devastating event, unable to doctor due to nightmares and such. The heroine wants to be a doctor, she is strong and full of faith. They meet on a stagecoach which happens upon another stagecoach on the road that has been in an accident with injured passengers. The heroine helps the hero, he leans on her and as they say the rest is history.The secondary characters are just as intriguing, their story is wonderfully written. I would highly recommend the story. I can hardly wait for the next installment. This book was received for review from Net Galley and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and Barbour Books. 5
