In doing so, she not only confronts a terrifying experience but discovers her lifes calling.Set in an era that on its surface is genteel and romantic, Hannahs story is that of a heroic womans fight to save and serve her fellow women through pioneering the use of medical advances.But her very devotion to duty creates a barrier to her emotions. Fiercely independent and strong-willed, she is unable to surrender to the passion she feels. How long will Adam, the man who yearns to love her, be willing to wait for her to open her heart?Submerged in her zeal for her cause, Hannah endangers her own chance for true love. Todays readers will readily identify with her challenges as she battles to overcome convention and find personal fulfillment.
