Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the early 1960s, residents of Hillsboro in the Shenandoah Valley are thrilled when a doctor agrees to settle in their community--especially Connie Wilkes, the town's assistant mayor, who has worked long and hard to convince any doctor to relocate to the town. The reputable Dr. Nathan Reynolds, who sees tiny Hillsboro and its residents as hopelessly backward, isn't the most pleasant of men, but the town begins to accept him when his new techniques save the life of the local minister's baby. Even though the doctor does not share her strong belief in God, Connie finds herself growing closer both to him and to God when her beloved uncle is diagnosed with cancer. In spite of fairly uninteresting and stereotypical main characters, Bunn (The Warning, Nelson, 1998) delivers a charming portrait of a poor town's struggles that should please his many fans. Libraries may want to purchase according to demand.
