Chaplain Riley Hale is a nurse who after a vicious assault that left her with lasting injuries, is trying to get back to her life as an ER nurse. Struggling to prove herself capable, she volunteers at a local free clinic that is not loved at all by it's upscale neighbors. There she meets it's director, Dr. Jack Travis, a gruff man who seems to have a lot of baggage of his own. Desperate to save his clinic, Jack will use any means necessary to keep it open. Even if it means using Riley's family name. Can they both put their trust in God to fight their battles and heal their wounded hearts?
This was the first time I have read one of Candace Calvert's novels; and it definitely won't be my last. This book starts with action right away and doesn't let up until the end. The various trauma scenes through out the book are so well written. Easy enough for the average person to understand the medical jargon but thrilling enough that you can't help but feel like you are right there. The struggles with trusting God that Riley and Jack have are so real and heart wrenching at times. I hope that there will be more in this series and now have to track down her other three novels. I highly recommend this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my review.
