CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME AUDIO BOOK!
A brilliant child protégée, she dreams of becoming a doctor and a surgeon…and accomplishes her goals. Unfortunately, her youth and round, child-like face work against her. No matter how skilled she becomes, how knowledgeable, the old school, male-dominated medical hierarchy wants to keep her in ‘her place.’
Deana has worked hard to become an expert in her chosen field, but few believe this ‘child’ capable. Specializing in infectious diseases, she travels the world—from the States to Europe to South America—honing her skills before winding up in Africa where her skills are desperately needed.
Meeting a nurse by the name of Madison MacGregor, she finds they share an insatiable curiosity and a love of helping others, but falling in love was not what she intended. Later, when she loses Maddie to a misunderstanding, she is haunted by the one that got away…
Ten years have passed and both the doctor and nurse have moved on with their lives, but fate intervenes when they find themselves working at the same hospital. Their friendship is revived…can their love be rekindled? Will the past haunt them or bring them closer? Will the secrets that both harbor keep them from realizing a future together?
The old one!

Wow—just wow! Yes, I really did love this book and no review will do it justice. One just needs to read this to get the full effect. Deanna was a child prodigy, a doctor and a lesbian. Madison was a nurse who was straight—-until she was able to admit differently. It was the story of how this love affair took place over a period of years and what happened to the two ladies during the interim that really makes the story. The writing was very well done and so was the editing (only a very few errors). This has become one of my favorite books and will be on my list to re-read. Having read some of this author's other books, I have to place this one high on the list as one of her best works and they have all been good..
