Anmeldelser

I watched the first episode of the television adaptation of this series a few years ago. It felt like something I'd sooner read than view, so I left the series for my wife to devour (she loves it!) and added this book to my ever-expanding reading list.
Skip to 2024. "Virgin River" finally made it to the top of my list. I've just finished reading it, and I'm happy I decided to do so.

Melinda is a midwife/nurse practitioner. She was married to Mark, a Doctor, and they work together and love together, and everything is perfect.

Tragedy strikes. Mark is senselessly gunned down when he stumbles upon a robbery-in-progress. Melinda is shattered. She decides to leave the ruins of her life behind and take a position in a remote township, assisting the community's sole medical practitioner.

When Melinda arrives in Virgin River, she hates everything about the place and regrets her actions, including selling her city home and disposing of most of her possessions. She decides she cannot stay and resolves to leave as soon as she can extricate herself from her commitment.

This is a story of found family, and I loved accompanying Melinda on her journey as she begins to see beneath the surface of where her life has brought her and reassess her values and self-worth. It is also a story of infatuation that blooms into love.

The day-to-day events in this book revolve around Melinda's work as a midwife and nurse practitioner. We see how she impacts the lives of the women of Virgin River, and pregnancy and childbirth are prominent and repeated themes.
The romance between Melinda and Jack, ex-marine and restauranteur, is a slow burn. If you're looking for sex in the first chapter, then this is probably not the book for you, but when they finally get to it, it's worth the wait.

As I only saw the first episode of the TV adaptation of this series, I don't know how closely it follows this book. I know that Melinda and Jack's relationship is central to the ongoing series, but I understand the focus of the written series switches to a different couple for each book. I prefer fully self-contained stories to drawn-out epics, so this suits me well, and I'm looking forward to continuing with this series.
