Wondering ‘What should I read next?’ Read Patiently Charmed by Kate Cambridge.
Mary Hawarden Trost is Philadelphia born and bred, with a degree from Bryn Mawr. After moving to Bareglen Creek, TX to teach at an orphanage for three months, she and her husband Mike decided to stay and try their hand at farming. When Mike dies unexpected, Mary is determined to carry on with his dream.
When Mike's family threatens to take the farm away, citing laws that state land and businesses should revert back to the man's family and not the surviving wife, Mary decides upon a bold response. She will fight to keep Mike's dream alive!
But when Mike's family tries to force her hand in marrying Mike's brother, a known bully, in order to keep her beloved farm, Mary collapses and doesn't regain consciousness.
Lee Jamison, M.D., is a renowned psychiatrist at the Institue of Pennsylvania Hospital and a professor at U Penn. He fell in love with Mary while visiting his friend, Doctor Lance Holloway, in Bareglen Creek. He's biding his time to give Mary the time and space she needs to grieve her loss, but when Doc Holloway sends him an urgent telegram telling him to come to Bareglen Creek immediately, Doctor Jamison takes the next train to be by her side.
Doctor Jamison is handsome and he could have any Philadelphia socialite that he chose, but no one has captured his heart like the independent and beautiful Mary Hawarden Trost. He arrives in Bareglen Creek to find that Mary has been unconscious for four days with no sign of regaining consciousness. He decides upon an unorthodox approach to bring her back, but little does he know the trials that present around every corner as he tries to help Mary leave the past behind.
Sinister forces are at work in the background, trying to keep Doctor Jamison and Mary apart.
Will his love be strong enough to win her heart, and defeat the opposition—or will her ties to the past hold her captive?
