Caroline Adams is an oncology nurse at Albuquerque General. Caroline works one day a week at the health center on the Chaco reservation. She and Ben meet when he's admitted to the hospital after passing out. Ben thinks it's from a punch he took while on the job. Caroline thinks something else.
Dr. Owen Bennet works at Albuquerque General too. He's one of those doctors who respect what a nurse does. Little does Owen realize that he's about to be included in an adventure that will change everything he thought he knew.
This is a story where Navajo magic trumps medical science, and pretty much everything else. It's a great story, with a great ending, but there will be more. Very highly recommended.
