Claire Sullivan has a soft spot for helping those in need. So when her favorite aunt grows blind, Claire can't resist traveling to the Montana Territory to care for her. But she never imagined the country would be so wild compared to her North Carolina home. Doctor Bryan Donaghue is sick of working so hard for people who don't want his help. He came to this wild Montana mining town to make a difference, but all he's found is pig-headed resistance. Even the sassy niece of the blind widow won't heed his instructions. But when disaster strikes their rough mining village, how can Claire choose between what's best for her aunt and what her heart tells her is right? Can Bryan find a way to save these people - especially the woman he's come to love?

The narrator sounds like a news caster. It is painful. Beller has simple, sweet, enjoyable stories. Though not challenging or insightful, they are full of life, hope, and love. So sad that this story was murdered by the narrator. This just in... Gruesome homicide of a sweet story.
Ms. Beller's other books.
She did not use good judgment in trying to vary the voices of each character. She used a little girl voice (which I found annoying) for the heroine. The narrator has a pleasant voice and could have used her voice for the heroine instead of putting on this high pitched silly voice. Her voice for all the women was not used in a conversational manner. Her voice for the hero was more believable because she did not force it.She mispronounced many words. For example, enveloped does not mean putting into an envelope. The word is envelop ed: to surround. Albeit is not "all bait". Etc. It ruins the story when the narration is uneducated.
I enjoyed looking up the bible passages.
This was a good story, as I have found all of Ms. Beller's books in this genre.
Christian morals; good storyline and character development. Enjoyed the narrator but felt that she was rushing many times. I kept wanting to say "please slow down". Really enjoyed this series and this author.
