At least that is what she thinks until she runs into the head of the clinic --- Dr. Charlie Wentworth! As she assesses the sustainability of the clinic, both patients and doctor open her heart.

On the explosive-tender spectrum, FOUND: A FATHER FOR HER CHILD has more tenderness than than some of her more explosive, passionate Medical Romances. While still hot, this romance shows the breadth in this author's writing and her ability to write in subtle emotional shades of romance most suitable for her characters and situations. Amy Andrews new romance is more than a romance between the hero and heroine. FOUND: A FATHER FOR HER CHILD shows medicine serving people, patients who cannot afford fancy medical care. The dedication in this book to medical workers who serve society's poor and disadvantaged moves the reader while creating a focal from which to view this medical romance. How refreshing it is to see authors writing about those medical professionals for whom their medical calling is about service to others instead of a big money grab or about flaunting wealth. FOUND: A FATHER FOR HER CHILD isn't just about passion for an individual but also compassion for others. In this romance, Amy Andrews shows that compassion also takes steadfastness. The patients aren't always easy, and sometimes compassion takes a different kind of courage and resolution of purpose in a real life hero and heroine as compared to the famed celebrity and business heroes we see in the press. Amy Andrews gives an image of medicine that merges management and in-the-trenches community medicine together through the romantic pairing up of her hero and heroine. Another Amy Andrews must read romance!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
