Allie’s troubles are far from over. The new year seems promising, but it doesn’t take long for trouble to come knocking…

Allie and Frank have chosen Wiley City, Washington to settle down in and, at first, things look rosy. But it isn’t long before the couple realizes how serious the growing typhoid epidemic is and how much Frank will have to sacrifice in his duties as the town’s new doctor.
