In 1832, Rachel Dunne is an Irish healer accused of the death of a child under her care. Acquitted but shunned, she flees to England searching for a new life. She vows to never sit at another bedside again … or trust in a God who abandoned her when she needed Him most.
London physician James Edmunds is wearied by his failures, especially his inability to save his wife, who died from childbed fever. He has decided to abandon his practice and lose himself in the running of his family’s small country estate. Until a red-haired Irish servant girl with a deep and mysterious strength makes him think about living again.
When cholera sweeps through London, and the life of James’ young daughter hangs in the balance, Rachel and James must face their darkest fears. And learn that true faith in God—and love—just might heal both their hearts.
