Cheney Duvall has proved herself an excellent doctor in serving the brides with whom she traveled West. But Seattle does not open any doors to her, even with her recent string of medical successes. In this frontier town she’s “just a woman.” Returning to the East, she finds an invitation to a remote town in the Ozark mountains where there are no physicians attending to the needs of the farmers, miners and their families, despite the danger of mountain life. Upon her arrival, she is caught between walls of illiteracy, superstition, and an immovable distrust of Yankees—especially educated women that think they’re real doctors. How will she overcome centuries of hate, mistrust, and prejudice?
