THERE COMES A TIME, IN SPITE OF PROTOCOL’S VOICE, WHEREBY A WOMAN MUST LISTEN TO THE CALLING OF HER HEART . . . AND FOLLOW IT!
The year, 1919 – Eagle’s Landing, Arizona: Cassia Rose Holmes was born to Reverend Joshua Holmes and Amanda Eagle in 1896. The Apaches living in the town called her The Last Bloom . . . as she was unexpectedly conceived late in her parent’s life and truly a miracle. Since she was a little girl Cassia loved helping others, fascinated with both the mystic and medical practices of healing. At fifteen she embarked upon her midwifery and nursing studies in England. For eight years she lived with her Aunt Marrietta Cavendish, called to care for the wounded soldiers when war broke out. But her true hope was to return to her home town, Eagle’s Landing, in Arizona and practice medicine alongside her first love interest, Tucker O’Clarity. Tucker had other ideas, dropping out of medical school to work on the railroad. Crushed by the decision, Cassia is left to work with Tucker’s father, Doctor Sean O’Clarity instead. But, when Sean suffers a heart attack, Cassia’s world is really turned upside down. Sean’s oldest son, Doctor Brodie O’Clarity is summoned home from Boston to help. Cassia always considered Brodie like an older brother, since he was six years her senior, and the one who looked out for both her and Tucker. A very natural and persistent attraction flares between them, suddenly complicating their working ethics. And just as Cassia finds herself falling in love with Brodie, Tucker returns.
Brodie O’Clarity never wanted to be a small town doctor, accepting food and livestock for his services, like his father. So when a position opened at a Boston hospital, Brodie left to pursue his career. His dedication caught the attention of the hospital’s Chief of Staff, Doctor Hemsley Malone, as well as his beautiful and spoiled, daughter, Dorothea. But when Brodie’s father suffered a heart attack, he discovered Dorothea wasn’t cut out to be a country doctor’s wife. Brodie couldn’t and wouldn’t ever be able to support her in the rich and luxurious manner to which she was accustomed. And Dorothea very quickly replaced Brodie with someone better fitting her lifestyle. Broken hearted Brodie left Boston, taking up his duties in Eagle’s Landing. He was partnered with Cassia Holmes, his brother’s childhood friend and sweetheart. She was the little blonde haired neighbor he looked out for, dried her tears and kept out of trouble. But something strange and wonderful happened . . . the little Cassia he once knew turned into a stunning, intelligent, strong, and beautiful woman, stirring every facet of his being. At twenty three she already knew what she wanted for her life, breaking with protocol, bobbing her long golden tresses, and wearing pink toenail polish. And as the two of them worked together his feelings for her grew. But just when he decided to profess his love, Tucker returned. His presence put a whole new spin on sibling rivalry. The chance of losing Cassia’s heart forever became a real possibility. Or would she be lost to them all by the hands of Becket Attwater, an escaped serial killer who terrorized the town and had Cassia in his clutches?
