Welcome back to Virgin River with the book that started it all...
WANTED: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against a backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.
When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad, she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to re-energise the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving - the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realising she's made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.
But a tiny baby abandoned on a front porch changes her plans...and former marine Jack Sheridan cements them into place.
"The Virgin River books are so compelling - I connected instantly with the characters and just wanted more and more and more." - No. 1 New York Times Bestselling author, Debbie Macomber.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Before inspiring a TV series, Robyn Carr’s Virgin River books made us fall in love with a dreamy and made-up California town known for its clean forest air and salt-of-the-earth characters. The first book in the series revolves around nurse-midwife Melinda Monroe, who moves to the 600-person hamlet from the big city. At first she’s out of her element, but she quickly finds herself drawn to the tight-knit community—and especially to sexy former marine Jack Sheridan. We love Carr’s focus on how Mel rises up to the challenge of providing care in a place with few resources. She never idealises small-town living, portraying the realities of poverty and drug use. That makes for a sweet romance that never, ever feels twee.
