EAKES, LAURIE ALICE
WHEN THE SNOW FLIES
Audrey Sinclair Vanderleyden sets her heart on fulfilling a promise to her deceased husband to continue practicing medicine, despite opposition from their families. But the old physician from whom they bought a practice stands in her way and refuses to honor the contract. Audrey must either give up medicine and return to her family, or marry a near stranger.
A gunshot wound robs Nathan Maxwell of the ability to practice medicine. He must find another purpose in his life. Marriage isn't an option; only a desperate woman would want a blind man for a husband.
Audrey is desperate, but marriage to Nathan isn't the salvation of her medical career she thought it would be. For Nathan, the union challenges loyalties and exposes what he's lost.

This story infuriated me even as it captivated me. The archaic views on women doctors had me wanting to hurl the book across the room! (Of course, I didn't since it was a library book and I'm a good little librarian but I did imagine the satisfying thwack it would have made as it came in contact with the wall. Much like the thwack I'd like to give some stubbornly prejudice characters!) Even the women were opposed to Audrey's desire to practice medicine! Gah!
Plenty of conflict and the sweet stirrings of romance along with some unexpected twists and turns in the plot kept my eyes glued to the page. Finished in an afternoon in a stupor of blissful reader satisfaction!
