Douglas felt his face grow warm when Olive sat across from him. With no hesitation, she took his hand in hers.
"Don't worry, Mr. Bowden. How on earth could anyone go through a lifetime of war and not have a bad dream or two?" She released his hand and just looked at him, her face so pleasant. He couldn't think of a time he had seen such kindness, which made her nearly beautiful.
When war-weary Surgeon Douglas Bowden, recently retired from the Royal Navy, decides to set up a country practice, he wants to be far away from the ocean. But upon seeing a seriously injured boy in Edgar, Douglas rushes to help and finds himself in a Scottish fishing village right next to the sea.
There he meets Olive Grant, she of the Scottish fiery temperament who has long ago given up on romance and marriage. Promising to stay for only a few days until the boy is better, Douglas learns that Edgar has more problems than solutions. Little does he know that it's his heart that needs the most loving care--and that Edgar (and Olive) are the perfect remedy.
The best healing doesn't always take place inside the doctor's office in this brand-new regency romance from master storyteller Carla Kelly.
