Audrey didn’t have an easy time earning her medical degree and has promised her late husband to continue her career as a doctor, but the physician whose practice they’d bought won’t honor the contract when she shows up. She must either give up her calling or defy society and set out her own shingle. To complicate matters, she’s pregnant. Visually impaired doctor Nathan Maxwell offers an alternative: marry him and she can at least treat the women patients in town. When Audrey accepts his option, they both face challenges they hadn’t anticipated, including their growing feelings for each other. Women can relate to the theme of job inequality in this sweet romance. ( )

Audrey Sinclair Vanderleyden sets her heart on fulfilling a promise to her deceased husband to continue practicing medicine, despite opposition from their families. But the old physician from whom they bought a practice stands in her way and refuses to honor the contract. Audrey must either give up medicine and return to her family, or marry a near stranger. A gunshot wound robs Nathan Maxwell of the ability to continue practicing medicine. He must find another purpose in his life. Marriage isn't an option; only a desperate woman would want a blind man for a husband. Audrey is desperate, but marriage to Nathan isn't the salvation of her medical career she thought it would be. For Nathan, the union challenges loyalties and exposes what he's lost.
