Product Description

Product Description

What Laura was about to do wasn't easy. To become embroiled in a family's turmoil, their grief, their anger, their secrets, wasn't safe, or clever. �

Rebuilding her life again after unexpected tragedy, GP Laura O'Connor flees Adelaide, and her medical career, for a quiet life in rural Potters Junction. She's looking to escape her own family dramas. The last thing she expects is to become caught up in another's.

Jake Finlay is a man with a troubled past and a passion for risk-taking. After years away from his small home town, he's hell-bent on keeping his distance. But his father is dying and this could be the last chance they have to make amends.

As Laura and Jake come together over the care for the frail man, they experience an irresistible attraction. Will facing death help them both to grab hold of life? And might love be just what the doctor ordered?

Format: Kindle Edition
The Doctor Calling, novel number two from new Australian author Meredith Appleyard, is a gentle read with many instances where your heart breaks for the sadness of the central characters – each one of them dealing with heartache, loss, broken dreams or just pure disappointment at the way life has turned out.

A caring old great-aunt has willed an historical cottage to two sisters. The author paints a wonderful word picture of life in a South Australian rural township as its newest resident finds solace in the anonymity of this isolated community far from her usual residence in Adelaide, the state’s capital city.

Laura’s life had been shattered by the loss of the three closest people in her life over a period of only a few short weeks. When the reality of her new situation becomes all too much, she hides away from everything and everyone in the little town of Potters Junction – including her vocation as a successful big city GP – until she finds herself being drawn to Neill, the elderly gentleman next door.

To her dismay, she learns he is in the final throes of a terrible disease. His children are already struggling with their own hardships and demons and now they have to cope with seeing their father’s body becoming withered and ravaged as time ticks away far too quickly.

A gentle awakening of emotions occurs when Laura meets Jake, Neill’s adopted son. He is torn between fulfilling his dreams of working on another documentary in Afghanistan or making peace with his father after a lifetime filled with hurt and bitterness from when his mother left them for another man many years earlier.
