This thrilling and heart-warming adventure from popular inspirational novelists Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris is full of rich historical details and colorful characters. As in The Stars for a Light, Dr. Cheney Duvall struggles against traditional values while seeking to establish her own identity. Much to her parents’ dismay, Cheney and her male nurse, Shiloh Irons, decide to take their medical skills to an Ozark Mountain settlement in Arkansas. An old friend of Cheney’s is pregnant, and the small town has no doctor. But the mountain people—who are uneducated, superstitious, and resistant to science—hesitate to accept an outsider. With the local medicine woman in the way and a family feud to contend with, Cheney may be biting off more than she can chew. The father/daughter writing team of Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris combine their skills to produce a lively, sumptuous tale. Narrator Kate Forbes portrays a thoughtful Cheney, whose passion and benevolence are genuinely inspiring. Download and start listening now!

    " This second installment of the Cheney Duvall, M.D. series is better than the first. The action doesn't seem quite so...squished, and the characterization of both returning characters and new ones seems richer and more real. Lynn and Gilbert start to hit their stride in this one. "
