Busy putting in stitches and bandaging lumberjacks' injuries, young Dr. Thomas Parks has no idea that his worst enemy is lurking in the sleepy village of Port McKinney in the spring of 1892. When one of the working girls at the Clarissa Hotel is brought to the Clinic desperately ill, Thomas's newly arrived associate wastes no time in making the diagnosis: Asian Cholera has somehow found this back water near Puget Sound.

The cholera strikes viciously and kills in days, sometimes even hours. It soon becomes apparent that Thomas and his clinic have neither the supplies nor the means to provide effective treatment for the outbreak, and in hours, they are swamped. Afraid for the safety of his wife and daughter and all those close to him, Thomas still is driven by professional curiosity about the contagion's origins, especially when it appears that one of his own nurses is in some way responsible. Before he can mount a truly effective defense, the battle spreads, threatening the very life of the village. Always a man driven by his own curiosities and ambitions, Thomas discovers that his greatest allies are those closest to him.

Comes a Time for Burning is the second in the Dr. Thomas Parks adventure series of historical novels, following the recent release of Race for the Dying.

    " While I enjoyed the book, it is an interesting story, it seemed the author didn't know how to end it. It seemed to me that in the mist of the climax the author just suddenly wraps it up. "

    " I enjoyed this historical novel by Havill. You can tell he's done a lot of research about the setting of the series (Port McKinney, WA), the timber industry and the work of a doctor in 1892. I liked the cast of characters and the race to stop the cholera epidemic before it destroys the town. "

    " I read almost 3/4 of it and just couldn't finish it-slow, plodding. "
