Jillian Spencer is bound and determined to make it as a topnotch newspaper reporter, but in 1940, that’s no easy task. Her chance comes when the president of the United States arrives for the dedication of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and her job is to report on this auspicious occasion. On her way to cover that story, her editor-in-chief redirects her to another news-worthy event, the Tuckaseegee flood, a catastrophic occurrence that occurred two days earlier leaving the lives of many mountain folks in shambles. While gathering information for the article covering the flood, Jill finds herself in a life or death situation.
Cameron Murphy, park ranger at Deep Creek Civilian Conservation Corps., is thankful to have been at the right place, at the right time. He soon learns that the woman he’s just rescued has a tender heart deeply touched by the suffering of his neighbors. He’s more than willing to help with her newspaper article, but as her dark eyes and determination pierce right to his soul, dare he hope that she’ll turn her tender heart toward him?
