Nurse Anne Dorland has rebuilt her life after a tragic accident. Then she comes face to face with the one man she never expected, or wanted, to see again.
Four years ago, Anne was widowed after a freak car accident on her honeymoon. Now she is finally looking to the future. She enjoys the challenges of her job as a senior staff nurse in the Cardiac Unit of St Martha’s Hospital.
Ann’s quiet life is turned upside down when she attends a New Year’s Hogmanay party in Edinburgh. She is attracted to the handsome and charming Alistair Cameron – but then she meets his cousin, George Farler …
George was the kind stranger who supported Anne in Spain when her husband was killed. But it is clear that neither of them want to be reminded of those painful days. That is made more difficult when they begin working alongside each other at St Martha’s. And then, Anne learns that George is secretly nursing a tragedy of his own.
It will take more life and death situations, both in and out of the hospital, before Anne and George can understand whether it is possible to bury the ghosts of the past and live for the present, and the future.
A heart-warming romance set in the early 1970s, with all of the trademark sensitivity and realism of a medical story by Lucilla Andrews.
