One of the things I look forward to most as the weather turns cooler is long walks. I love spending an hour or two walking along the country lanes around my home. a couple of my younger sisters get very excited about riding their bikes in the cooler weather.

1.  The Best Medicine by Anne Marie Rodgers (Hope Haven, #1)
My sister Rose and I have been reading through this series together. We are quite attached to the characters from Hope Haven. These nurses each have different life struggles, but they share faith in God. This is a sweet series. Some books are better written than others, but they have to be read in order.

2. Trauma Plan by Candace Calvert 
Calvert is my favorite author of mine. This was the first book I read by her and was based a lot on her own experience. Her characters are real, messy, yet find salvation, healing, and hope in Jesus.

3. Called for Life by Kent and Amber Brantly
Samaritans Purse has been one of my favorite ministries for years. This is the true story of a doctor who served during the Ebola outbreak and contracted the illness himself. His courage and faithfulness are inspiring. He loves God and others in a hard time. It's a wonderful story. 

4. Cherry Ames, Student Nurse by Helen Wells
I remember seeing these books on the shelves of my grandparent's home. It would be many years before I started reading the series. They are dated, but they are fun to see not only Cherry, but the nursing profession as it used to be.

5. Critical Care by Candace Calvert 
Another Calvert book and series. I just love the medical feel, the unique characters, and the faith that is powerfully shown.
