Lovely, dedicated Nurse Nan Warner faced new temptations in a world of wealth. Could she remain true to her vows as a nurse…her ideals as a woman?
Nan Warner was proud of her first job at modern Donovan Memorial Hospital. Her devotion to her calling and her radiant youth soon attracted the attention of the doctors. The handsome, arrogant Chief of Staff tried to win Nan for himself alone, while Dr. Matt Ferguson watched jealously.
And then one day Nan was assigned as special nurse to old Hannah Donovan, whose millions ruled the destinies of Donovan Hospital and its staff.
Established at the Donovan mansion, the slim, red-haired nurse found that the autocratic old woman was using her as a pawn in an evil plan which not only involved the two young doctors but also threatened Nan's happiness as a woman.
Donovan Memorial Hospital at Forest Lake had been named for old Jeremy Donovan, wealthy Chicago industrialist. Now his widow, Hannah, spent her summers in a pretentious home of the lake shore--and dictated the policies of Donovan Hospital.
It was Hannah who had brought Richard Harden to Memorial as Chief of Staff, a move questioned by many, for while Dr. Harden possessed considerably more than the normal amount of charm, he was much too young for so responsible a position.
Among those who questioned Dr. Harden's decisions was Matthew Ferguson, chief diagnostician--abrupt, rough, and lacking all the social graces that appealed to the imperious Hannah. And caught squarely in the middle of the impossible situation was red-haired Nan Warner, special nurse to Mrs. Donovan on her frequent visits to Donovan Memorial for real and imaginary ailments.
Nan was in love with Dick Harden, but even Nan had to revise her opinion of the Chief of Staff in the case of Danny MacKaye. Matthew Ferguson had brought young Danny, born a blue baby, to Memorial for the operation that might save his life. Harden made no secret of the fact that he not only resented the boy's presence in the hospital--reserved mostly for wealthy summer residents--but balked at the idea of performing an operation that might not be successful.
And when Matthew Ferguson--taking no credit for himself--saw Danny through his ordeal and saved Nan herself from drowning, the nurse whose temperament matched her red hair had to admit that the gruff young doctor was a good man to have around.
