As usual, Candace Calvert has written a story that is believable, exciting, and complete with emotional and physical tension. There is sweet romance and medical expertise. The subjects dealt with in this work of fiction are somewhat heavy but are brought to realistic conclusion. Grace is woven through the pages without being too heavy on religion. This is a work of Christian fiction and the author brings the heart of the story right to our own hearts.
