Fiona Rafferty has always had a healing touch, and she is determined to become a doctor. But in 1899, Fiona's father will not hear of it. No daughter of his will pursue a career outside the home, even if it means shipping her off to Alaska to live with her brothers' families, and to hopefully find a husband. Fiona decides to tolerate her exile only until she can find the perfect opportunity to escape, then return to civilization and enroll in medical school. But she did not expect to meet Tucker Smith, an exasperating man who confuses her plans by stealing her heart. Can Fiona include Tucker in her dreams for the future, or will a secret from his past cast darkness over their love?
