When Mel Monroe needs a fresh start, she answers an ad for a nurse practitioner and midwife in a small North Carolina town. Virgin River is where she’s headed, and she sees it as an opportunity to shut the door on the pain and the struggles she’s lived with in the big city for so long.
When Mel gets to Virgin River, everything isn’t all smooth-sailing like she was hoping for. In fact, the doctor she hired to work with isn’t very accepting of her help, and he’s given her 30 days to prove herself—or that’s it. Of course, Mel is skilled at her job, but it becomes clear that the people of Virgin River need more than a nurse practitioner. They need hope again.
So does Mel.
