Despite her misgivings, she knew she would be useful to the growing town and a dependable source of medical care for the women and children living there. Although she had never heard of such a generous salary nor the fact she had been hired and brought there by the future fathers of the town’s children, she felt blessed to have be chosen. Now she was determined not to let those men or their families down. Even though keeping a secret of her own, she felt she could more than fulfill her duties. But will her passion and mutual desire for one man be more of a stumbling block than she could have conceived?
