Series: Sophie's Daughters  
Author: Mary Connealy 

What happens when an idealistic student nurse encounters an embittered army doctor in a stagecoach accident? How will she react when she learns her training didn’t prepare her for tragic reality? How will he, an army deserter, respond to needs when he vowed to never touch another patient? Can these two stubborn mules find common ground on which to work and bring healing to West Texas?

Review:   
As with all of Mary Connealy’s books I’ve read, Doctor in Petticoats is a fast-moving entertaining story featuring a talented, strong, independent heroine that knows how to survive in the rugged, wild west. But Beth is so much more; she is sensitive, tender and compassionate able to understand Alex’s grueling past and how she can help in his times of need.

Doctor in Petticoats will touch each emotion by mixing humor...with subtle inspiration, throwing in other strong yet caring characters to give the reader a story hard to put down and wanting more when you come to the end. Lucky for us there are at least two more books in the series!


Mary Connealy's new series, Sophie's Daughters, is E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T! I loved EVERYTHING about this book, from Mary's seasoned writing to the plot to sweet Sophie herself. There was no way I was putting this book down once I got started...Doctor in Petticoats is more than 5 star worthy, and should be read again and again....and again!

Mary Connealy is a wonderful writer, and the thoughts that run through her characters minds are always intriguing and good for a few chuckles.

She is a great storyteller. Her books just keep getting better and better.
I knew I shouldn't have started this! I picked it up to while away an hour and then got frustrated when I only had an hour! Then I stayed up too late reading and couldn't let it go until I was finished. I laughed the whole way through the book - I was laughing out loud before I was finished the second page!

First off, I have loved every book that Mary Connealy has written that I have read so far. I loved this one from the first page and I loved even more how some of the characters in this book are from her other series called, Montana Marriages, but you do not have to read that series first to get the whole story.

Mary Connealy is definitely an author that writes books that you just can't put down. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.




This was such a fast paced story that I didn't put it down, reading it in one sitting. I loved the character of Beth she is a self assured lady who also has a quick wit. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. I also enjoyed how the book bounces back and forth between the sisters. When Mandy realizes her marriage is a mistake, she feels like she has to honor her wedding vows and stick it out.

If your a fan of fast paced, historical christian fiction then you are going to love this book. This was my first time reading anything by Mary Connealy and she now has a new fan in me. I am anxious to read the next book in the series.

This book was amazing! I simply loved it!! I have not enjoyed a book this much in a long time. I lost sleep reading this book I could just not put it down! Mary Connealy is an amazing writer. I was a little worried when I saw her writing about the main character of the 3rd book in the series in the first but she did it beautifully. I was so drawn into these characters I started looking at other books of the author and found Beth was the daughter of one of the characters from a earlier book. I now want to go back and read all about her and all the other books that came before this one. The characters come across as real with problems to over come but you just fall in love with them. As soon as I finished this book I started on the 2nd in the series and found myself running for the 3rd as soon as it was done. A must read if you enjoy a good western Christian romance!


Doctor in Petticoats is the first of her books I’ve read, and it won’t be the last.

I’m definitely going to look up the other two novels in this series, about Beth’s sisters.

First off, I have loved every book that Mary Connealy has written that I have read so far.

Conneally did a great job in showing us that with faith and hope anything is possible especially to a man who thinks he’s given up. There is more to this series and definitely each one is getting better than ever.


Mary Connealy is one of my favorite Christian authors and the the book, Doctor in Petticoats, did not disapoint. It was a delight to revisit the McClellen clan with the daughters all grown up! The novel contained all the humor, suspense, danger, love and faith that I've come to expect in a Connealy offering.
