It wasn't the medical condition of Nurse Lauren's asthma patient that was the big challenge, it was her attitude. Thirteen-year-old Michalene Albright was a rebellious, moody brat. She resented Lauren's presence in the family's spacious Cape Cod home and made no secret of it. But once the young nurse understood Michalene—and her hidden fears and emotions—she was able to win the girl over.
If only Lauren could have understood her own emotions better. For she was caught in a whirlwind of confusion as her patient's handsome, domineering cousin, Bowman, and her attractive young doctor, Alex, vied for Lauren's affections while a sudden tragedy rocked the entire Albright family.
