They had found each other in the tight-woven hospital world, where all day, every day, doctors and nurses fought errant nature. Even hospital rules could not restrain their passion.

Could the people who had come before – her brother Jan, the arrestingly beautiful amoral nurse, the seductive sophisticated doctor – snatch away their happiness?

Or would her faltering heart, unused to love, betray her now?
