Sparks fly when a 300-year old Celtic curse unites a career woman from the present with a western doctor from the past.
What happens when you cross a modern-day career woman with a nineteenth-century Western doctor? Some interesting things.
In a magical tale of Celtic curses, leprechauns, wishes and fantasy, you read about Delaney Marshall, a woman of Irish ancestry, and the handsome Gabriel Whitman, the town doctor in 1888 Phoenix, Arizona.
Delaney’s heart is not in her work. After a bad day at the office, she heads home to think about her future. She meets an interesting Irishman who provides the way into the past, back over one hundred years.
As soon as Delaney finds herself in the nineteenth century, she saves the life of a child and puts her own life at risk. The town doctor saves her life in an exciting first meeting.
The chemistry between these two is immediate and apparent. They spend much time together in this charming tale, falling in love. Delaney finds herself as well; she discovers her real calling in life: medicine, when she helps the doctor care for his patients.
I really liked the historical Western details. The writing brought me right in with its “slice of life” feel of daily living back then. Not a gripping story that will leave you on the edge of your seat, it’s more of a “feel good” type of read.
I’d recommend this story if you enjoy Westerns and charming romances.
