The Doctor Calling

The Doctor Calling

By  Meredith Appleyard

What Laura was about to do wasn't easy. To become embroiled in a family's turmoil, their grief, their anger, their secrets, wasn't safe, or clever.  

What Laura was about to do wasn't easy. To become embroiled in a family's turmoil, their grief, their anger, their secrets, wasn't safe, or clever.  
 
Rebuilding her life again after unexpected tragedy, GP Laura O'Connor flees Adelaide, and her medical career, for a quiet life in rural Potters Junction. She's looking to escape her own family dramas. The last thing she expects is to become caught up in another's.
 
Jake Finlay is a man with a troubled past and a passion for risk-taking. After years away from his small home town, he's hell-bent on keeping his distance. But his father is dying and this could be the last chance they have to make amends.
 
As Laura and Jake come together over the care for the frail man, they experience an irresistible attraction. Will facing death help them both to grab hold of life? And might love be just what the doctor ordered?
