I just finished reading the Virtues and Valor Series by Halle Bridgeman. In this series, Seven valorous women — different nationalities, ethnicities, and social backgrounds — come together as a team called the Virtues.
As many of you know, I’m not a huge fan of fiction, however I am a fan of Ms. Bridgeman. And after reading this series, I continue. This is a do not miss.

With Autumn’s Return by Amanda Cabot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“When Elisabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne to open her medical practice, she is confident that the future is as bright as the warm Wyoming sun. Certain she’ll have a line of patients eager for her services, she soon discover the town may not welcome a new physician – especially a lady doctor.”
With Autumn’s Return is historical fiction that takes place in Cheyenne Wyoming – 1887; a time when women are relegated to raising children and running a household. They are seen as inferior and weak and in no way capable of being educated, not attaining any professional status. Elizabeth Harding, Dr. Elizabeth Harding, sets out to prove the men of Cheyenne wrong. Her keen mind and tenacity makes her a force to be reckoned with in the town, as she and a local love-interest/lawyer must work together to save one of her patient’s from the deceit of the wealthy of the town.
With Autumns’ Return is book 3 in the Westward Winds Series by Amanda Cabot. While I have not read either of the first two books in this series, I feel that this book could easily stand-alone though it is part of a series. If you are a fan of historical fiction, you will enjoy the work of Amanda Cabot.
