From the Inside Flap
Dear Dr. Bjorklund, I don't know if you are in Blessing or on your way to Africa, but I am writing this in the hope that you are indeed in North Dakota. I also hope you are not going to Africa, but that is my selfish prayer. Remember our discussion when I said that perhaps my people could be your Africa? Right now the people of Red Bud Reservation are dying from the measles. If I go home at this time, I will lose my place in the hospital rotation, and as Dr. Morganstein is afraid, I might never make it back here. The needs are so great on the reservation. I know your people in Blessing sent food and supplies earlier this spring, but now a doctor is needed, one who can teach my people how to fight off this dread epidemic. The lack of food and cleanliness is part of the problem, as is the disease itself. Please, can you go? And I beg your people to be generous again to those who are so proud and so needy. I will finish my training here at the end of the summer and will return as soon as possible. But my people need help now. Your friend, Dr. Red Hawk

From the Back Cover
Must she give up love to pursue her calling?
Astrid Bjorklund wants to use her medical training to serve God and feels that He might be leading her in the direction of missionary service. Smarting from a misunderstanding with Joshua Landsverk, the young man she thought she loved, she heads south to a missionary training school, hoping to eventually use her skills in some remote outpost in Africa.
When she is called home to help in a family medical emergency, a door of opportunity opens for her unexpectedly. Perhaps the "mission field" God intends for her is not exactly what she had imagined. Plunging into her new venture with all her energy, she won't let herself be discouraged by some disapproving townsfolk in Blessing. But when a certain young man also expresses opposition, she's caught off guard. If she follows God's call, will love pass her by?
