When pediatrician James Macis rushes to the aid of a woman and her child holed up in a cabin in the mountains just outside of Clearwater, he’s uncertain what to think. After spending most of his career in a big city hospital, he’s adjusting to the unsteady ways of small town living, but he never expected he’d have to care for a sick child without modern medical supplies.
After some regrettable choices, Ella Carmichael chose to hide, never guessing her decision would jeopardize her daughter’s life. Alone in the middle of the woods, she’s more terrified than ever. The only thing she wants is for Abbi to be well. For that, she’s willing to risk facing civilization again.
James never thought his relocation would give him the chance to have the family he’s always wanted. While Ella focused all her efforts on protecting her daughter, the world passed her by. Will a sick child help James and Ella find fulfillment?
