For nearly two hundred years, women in Ashley Tollivers family have practiced the art of midwifery in their mountain community. Now she wants to take her skills a step further, but attending medical school means abandoning those women to whom she has dedicated her life, the mountains she loves, and the awakening of her heart.

Until a young woman gives birth at Ashleys home and is abducted just as Ashley tries to take the dangerously bleeding mother to the nearest hospital.

Ashley isnt prepared for the way Hunters entrance into her world affects her heart and her future. He reignites dreams of having her own family that she has long put aside in favor of earning her medical degree and being able to do even more for her community.
