About the book
Jennie Lichtenthaler Pickett became one of the first physicians trained in Oregon. She graduated from Willamette Medical School in 1879 and practiced in both Salem and Portland in the late Nineteenth Century.
Jennie Pickett Parrish is a natural healer, but her dream to become a doctor in 1870's Oregon puts her at odds with the world around her. As she struggles to keep her dream alive, she finds that the road to fulfillment winds past love, heartache, and plenty of surprises along the way.
