Item description for In the Twilight, in the Evening (Cheney Duvall, M.D. Series #6) (Book 6) by Lynn Morris & Gilbert Morris...
Devastation struck without warning, leaving even Cheney overwhelmed.
Cheney Duvall and her friend Victoria de Lancie travel from New Orleans to San Francisco, escorted by Shiloh Irons. Cheney takes a position in the St. Francis de Yerba Buena Hospital, a large experimental private facility that is administered by Dr. J.E. Baird. Shiloh obtains work as a medical assistant among the hospital staff, administering the nursing staff and other male attendants.
Working in the hospital proves to be quite different from Cheney's experience in private practice. Although Dr. Baird and most of the doctors at St. Francis treat her with respect, she finds that the medical personnel are doubtful of her character, her intent, and her skills. She must prove herself and assert her authority again and again.
One of the conflicts Cheney faces is that of fair and conscientious medical treatment of what are considered unfit persons. San Francisco teems with brothels, criminal gangs, and poverty-stricken vagrants and immigrants. The hospital's board of directors has decreed that none of these people will receive treatment, regardless of their ability to pay. When Cheney fights to combat these prejudices, she finds that the only support she can count on is from Shiloh Irons.
But when catastrophe suddenly strikes, even Cheney finds that none of her medical education has prepared her for such an overwhelming disaster. With so many casualties with severe injuries, who will help?

GREAT SERIES......... Jul 8, 2002
This is a great series!!! Gilbert and Lynn Morris are terrific authors! The plots and characters are so well developed and I am always anxious to get to the next book!
Mostly a good book, with some long stretches. May 5, 2001
Cheney takes a job in a San Francisco hospital as its first female physician. Despite a few problems that erupt, for the most part she enjoys her job, with occasional outings with her friends. Shiloh meets Bain Winslow from Hawaii, who turns out to be his first real lead as to who his real parents are. Some parts of this book may seem frustrating, while others go very quickly. This is probably one of the most important books in the series (and of course, you have to read them all to know what's going on)!
Can't wait! Mar 16, 2000
This is a really good book. with each of the Cheney books, you think you can't get any more climatic, then suddenly You are suprised and left gasping for breath! Book six is taking the cake. can't wait, can't wait! out of the series, Book six isn't my favorite. but it is absolutely necessary background for continuing the series. So much happens with Cheney, and With Shiloh. It's one more step towards finding his family, and One more step for Cheney in trusting God with her whole life, especially her emotions. DON'T READ BOOKS 7 OR 8 WITHOUT READING 6! Please see my member profile for links to the Cheney duvall Message board, and my Cheney Duvall Website.
Gilbert and Lyn Morris do it again!! Nov 28, 1998
Once again Gilbert and his daughter Lyn Morris provide us with quality and entertaining piece of reading. In the Twilight, In the Evening is a wonderful example of what a fine writting team that we have in our world. As always it is a pleasure to sit down and read a novel by these two, but I couldn't help but feel disappointed that the last novel in this series was such a long way from publication. For as it always is books in a series leave you in a state of fustration wanting to know what is going to happern. The characters in this story are so believeable that it is not hard to grow to love them and find yourself anxious to know that they are safe and have found the elusive happily ever after. I have spent much time following the antics of Dr. Cheney Duvall and her friend Victoria. Many times i have been moved to laughter and tears by the soulful writing of this father-daughter team. If you are looking for a book that is filled with historical accuracy and an indepth look into the experiences and the plight of the Chinese in Eighteenth Century San Francisco, you will not go wrong with this book. It is an enjoyable read from which you will walk away with a new insight into history.
I love the series and enjoyed this book. Nov 21, 1998
This is one of the better Cheney Duvall books. It has some loose ends, but those are quickly tied up in #7, which I have read. I love the way Cheney grows in her spiritual walk, even if she does act selfishly sometimes. Read more about this book at the Official Cheney Duvall M.D. web site. Way to go, Gilbert and Lynn!
