Staff Nurse Shelley Dexter finds herself working with Jason Howard, the student doctor who saved her life. When things don’t run smoothly between the pair, could they both be hiding their true emotions?
Shelley is saved from drowning while on holiday, and is surprised to learn that she and her rescuer work at the same London hospital. There is no possibility of a romance – Shelley expects to marry her childhood sweetheart Alistair, and Jason is seen out and about with the glamorous Bettina Orme. But working alongside Jason, Shelley realises her feelings for him are more complicated than she first thought.
Shelley also has to deal with the heartbreak and hope that are part of daily life in the wards and operating theatres of a busy city hospital. With problems in her personal and professional life, can Shelley gain lasting happiness?
A moving romance and a fascinating insight into the everyday lives of nurses and doctors in the 1960s, with all of the trademark warmth and realism of a hospital story by Lucilla Andrews.
