Young district nurse Lesley Sanders enjoys her life and job in a small country village. Then the arrival of two very different men promises to change her life forever.
Lesley is pleasantly surprised that the village’s new doctor is Mike Ellis, a colleague from her days nursing at a London hospital. But why does her sister, Ann, have such a strange reaction to the likeable young medic?
On an errand for a neighbour, Lesley literally bumps into the charming and mysterious Patrick Larraby. Is he really as carefree as he suggests, or is there much more to Patrick than meets the eye?
Before she learns the answers to these questions, Lesley must cope with life and death among her patients, an unforeseen night of danger, and a heartbreaking medical diagnosis. An uplifting and moving story of 1960s village life, medicine and romance.
