Anna Prentiss has never wanted to be anything but a nurse. Before she
can start school in New York, however, her brother sends her to Cades
Cove, deep in the Smoky Mountains, to spend a summer apprenticing to the
local midwife. Anna is determined to prove herself and then head to the
big city.

But nothing could have prepared Anna for the beauty
of the Cove, or the community and friendships she finds there. And she
certainly wasn’t prepared for Simon Martin, the handsome young minister,
or the feelings he arouses in her. Has God’s plan for Anna changed? Or
is she just starting to hear Him clearly?
