To some, making this ancient garment available to heal the masses would be an act of compassion. However altruistic, others believe it to be a totally misguided act–one that would instantly fling the world into theological, political, economic and logistical chaos.
Set in Iraq, South Florida, and Jerusalem, the story gives a fascinating look at biblical archaeological history and leads the reader on a hunt for the mysterious relic. Along the way, a number of intriguing characters are introduced, each with his or her own reasons for wanting to possess the power of the ancient healing cloak.
Baker City, Oregon, 1881
Seven years ago, Julia McKenzie rejected the man she loved, wanting to experience more of life. Now, at the age of twenty-four, she regrets that decision. What will Seth think of her, when they encounter one another hundreds of miles from home? Will the man she cared for understand the direction her life has taken and love her in spite of her choices?
Pastor Seth Russell has never completely forgotten the girl he once courted. When she shows up in his new home of Baker City, all those feelings return. But why is she sneaking around town late at night? Even more important, will she reject him and break his heart again, or can God heal the breach between them?
Forget Me Not is part of the historical romance, Love Blossoms in Oregon series, published by David C Cook. This book can stand alone, but is better enjoyed when reading the series and getting acquainted with the full cast of characters from the Love Blossoms in Oregon series.
From the Library Journal Review for book 2 in the series, Wishing on Buttercups.
“Readers will be swept up by the blossoming romance in this second book (after Blowing on Dandelions) in Ferrell’s historical series about the lives of those who traveled on the Oregon Trail. It’s sure to engross fans of best-selling authors Johanna Lindsey and Maeve Binchy.”
Library Journal Review – 2/15/14
Ferrell, Miralee. Wishing on Buttercups. David C. Cook. (Love Blossoms in Oregon, Bk. 2)
“An amazing, deeply emotional story. Each of the characters is so sympathetic and well drawn that it was impossible to put the book down. Miralee Ferrell’s characters are appealing, with a touching and believable faith journey, and the romance is lovely.”
Roxanne Rustand, Author of Duty to Protect
Miralee Ferrell creates a solid five-star novella that is both concise and far-reaching in its message of forgiveness and love. Gentle romance combines seamlessly with the struggles of characters and a town coming to terms with their own prejudices and vocations.

Madison swept a bow, handing the package over. “Here you go, sister dear.”
The paper crinkled in Lindsey’s hand. Something soft, not in a box. Her name was scrawled across the package with a black marker. Bold. What could it be? And from whom?
“Open it already!” Madison rocked on the balls of her feet.
Lindsey slipped the string off the package and parted the tape along the edge. She pulled the paper back until something pink and fuzzy was revealed. She lifted it up. A pair of soft mittens? That was sweet, but where had they come from?
A piece of paper drifted to the floor, and Madison pounced then unfolded it. Her eyes widened, and she clutched the paper to her chest. “Oh, how romantic!”
The drama team didn’t know what they were missing without her sister. Lindsey held her hand out until Madison relinquished the note.
The paper appeared to be from a memo pad, pink with red hearts around the edges. She raised her eyebrows. Seriously?
Cold hands, warm heart.
She turned it over. Nothing. No hint of the sender.
“I bet it’s from Pastor Nick.”
Lindsey dipped her head to glare at her sister. “I bet it isn’t.” Nick Harrison wasn’t a romantic kind of guy. Not the Nick she remembered, for sure. Get a girl’s hopes up, then dash them. Maybe it was him. Maybe he was doing it again.
