Featured Book: The Doctor's Family by Lenora Worth



Raising four-year-old triplets and an abandoned teenager, single mother Arabella Clayton Michaels has her hands full. She loves everything about her big family in tiny Clayton, Colorado. But when a Denver surgeon arrives with the news that her beloved teenager is his long-lost niece, Arabella worries she'll lose the girl—and much more. Jonathan Turner's harrowing past makes her want to open her heart to him. But will the handsome doctor accept a bigger ready-made family than either dreamed was possible? Today we have the hero from The Doctor's Family visiting us.




1. Jonathan, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I'm not really that interesting but I am a good doctor. I get in, get the job done and get the patient well.

2. What do you do for fun? Fun? Hmmm. I work all the time, so I don't do much for fun. I guess that's why I haven't found someone to share my life with. They run screaming since I am more committed to my work than having a life.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? Having a family. I want a family but I had a bad childhood with an alcoholic father. I decided I'd get away from that life and work hard to find security. But now that I've met Arabella and her adorable triplet girls, I'm thinking more and more about what it would mean to have a real family.

4. What are you afraid of most in life? Go back to question number three! I'm afraid I'll make a big mistake if I give in to my growing feelings for Arabella. I'm a big city guy. Can I actually be happy in a small town? I guess I'm afraid of accepting happiness.

5. What do you want out of life? I want security and the fulfillment of doing a good job. I want to truly become a family man.

6. What is the most important thing to you? Before I met Arabella, it was my work. Now I'm not so sure. She has a real family. It's loud and chaotic and confusing, but ... I like that.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book? I read medical mysteries and suspense, of course. Lately, I've been reading the Bible more. I don't have a lot of time to read, but ... if I become a small town doctor I might be able to read a lot more. Or not!

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My ambitions. I always wanted security and status and I've worked hard to achieve that. Now those things don't seem so important.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? I've never had a pet. Not so good at my house growing up. I guess I'd want a dog. A big fluffy, friendly dog.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? I'd go back to when I was younger and Arabella was in high school. I'd try to win her heart so we could be high school sweethearts and then I could marry her and we'd have a family. That would save me from being so terrified of making that happen now! Any suggestions???

  9. Hello ladies! Just got home from church! Ah, Sundays..... I sure do love the weather here in Oregon lately! It's actually summer here! I feel sorry for the rest of the country....too hot, too wet, too "something"!! It's perfect here and I wish I could send it to everyone! I guess people are busy as there aren't many comments today! How fun that Lenora is giving away another book! I just realized that "A Soldier's Mission" is actually a book of hers I have NOT read. How can that be??? I could have sworn I'd read all of hers! I guess she slipped one past me! How are you today, Missy? Valri

  22. Hello! I've not read a book by Lenora, but am intrigued by this one. I had a neighbor who had triplets - two boys and a girl. They were always in motion and always talking. Very entertaining! So this book sounds fun. I also loved the interview with the hero...what a great idea! Oh...I don't know any of the authors except Pam Tracy...and knowing how much her adoptive parents doted upon her, I'm guessing that she is the author whose pictures were all in an album and she didn't want to risk damaging one by removing it!

  32. Hello, everyone. I'm been AWOL for a few days due to the death of close friend. But I can see the ladies are making sure you're having fun. Melanie, I'm so glad you won a copy of "The Soldier's Mission." Paco was one of my favorite tormented heroes. :)
