Dr Hilary Morgan had accomplished her dream early in life, to practice at Boston hospital. But when the worst imaginable happened, she was accused of malpractive, the only place she could work until her case came to trial was Appalachia. The transition was difficult for someone who liked cable tv, the Boston Pops, microwave ovens. Fortunately, country doc and her partner at the outmoded mountain clinic, Dr. Rick Burnet, eased her way even when residents seemed outright rebellious to her innovative ideas. Rick encouraging words and his terrific bedside manner soon had Hilary's ego on the mend. But the day was fast approaching when she had to make a choice and no medicine would provide the cure.
