The rundown clinic at Blue Hollow was a far cry from big, modern Bayley Memorial Hospital where Ann Tyler once worked. But for the lovely young surgeon, this tiny Kentucky mining town seemed a perfect refuge from the memory of a handsome doctor who betrayed her love.
Waiting for Ann was the challenge of protecting the health of the miners and their families, even though this meant battling the owners over safety in the mines. Another challenge was Pete Barron, a good-looking writer who awoke disturbing feelings in Ann's still wounded heart. Could Ann overcome the suspicions of the townsfolk, and terrifying anonymous threats against her life? Could she trust herself to fall in love with a man she barely knew? How Ann Tyler proved herself as a doctor and a woman makes for a spellbinding story of inspiring dedication and enthralling romance.
