"My worst fears come true. My flight crew has both a civilian and a woman -- all in one package."
JUDD McALLISTER had no enthusiasm at all for Dr. Sarah Christie's membership on the crew of the shuttle Discovery. Ever since his appointment as mission specialist for the upcoming flight, irresistibly handsome Judd had been fighting off giddy, star struck females and nosy tabloid reporters at every turn.
SARAH CHRISTIE, however, was not like the rest. Intelligent and ambitious, she too had struggled for professional respect during her years of preparing to be a physician. She had no intentions of falling at Judd's feet, even when the shuttle program threw them together as many women could only dream. But she was willing to be a friend -- and a Christian witness -- to Judd.
