Gwyn is a nurse working in her father's clinic, and while she loves it, she also finds life hard. Her mother and sister are gone, a direct result of the rustic life, and they aren't coming back. Both Gwyn and her father know that they are needed where they are and they love it there, but they also miss love and family. As the practice grows and help is needed, Dr. Hillerman asks Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan to join them.
Jeremiah has his own problems. His medical license was taken away after one of his wealthy patients died and his fiance has left him. A new start in Alaska? That is what he is hoping for. But, how will he and Gwyn get along? Will Jeremiah be a help or a hinderance to the practice? And, what are the secrets that threaten to destroy any opportunity for love? Open this book to find the answers, along with many other twists and turns.
This is a wonderful story set around the time of the Depression, in the Alaskan frontier. It has great characters, writing that puts you on the ground with the characters, and a story that will engage you. If you like historically based stories with a love story entwined in the pages, this book is for you! I received my review copy from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
