Rural Texas in 1886 was as far from the academic life of Chicago’s University and its training hospital as a woman could get. Tess McLeish, who had been invited by Dr. Waverly to join his practice and his his life as his wife, now finds herself waiting in Forever, Texas while the man decides between her and another woman. A much younger, lovelier woman with connections and wealth. But Tess, already a widow once, needed this marriage to continue in her chosen field and open the woman’s hospital so desperately needed.
