Although Dr. Baird and most of the doctors at St. Francis treat her with respect, she finds that the medical personnel are doubtful of her character, her intent, and her skills.

San Francisco teems with brothels, criminal gangs, and poverty-stricken vagrants and immigrants. The hospital's board of directors has decreed that none of these people will receive treatment, regardless of their ability to pay. When Cheney fights to combat these prejudices, she finds that the only support she can count on is from Shiloh Irons.But when catastrophe suddenly strikes, even Cheney finds that none of her medical education has prepared her for such an overwhelming disaster. With so many casualties with severe injuries, who will help?« less
As the 6th book in the series, we continue to find the development of Cheney Duvall as she tries to persue her medical profession in the late 1800's. She has now moved on to San Francisco, and this book, as in the others reveals alot about the history of San Francisco during this period. The romance continues between Cheney & Shiloh (would they just get on with it!! :) ), and brings back a friend that Cheney has met along the way. An excellent series with a "G" rating in my book.
