Zoe McCann doesn't care much for doctors
Especially eminent neurosurgeons who are too busy to attend to their patients. Like Dr. Phillip Barry, who wasn't available the night Jenny, the daughter of Zoe's best friend, was brought to the E.R.
So Zoe marches into Phillip's office. She hasn't spoken to him since they played together as children–she was the daughter of his parents' housekeeper. But the man she confronts isn't the unfeeling, egocentric individual she thought she'd find. He's a single father and a dedicated physician who can't hide the pain he feels at the tragedy of that night.
As Zoe's feelings for Phillip grow, she learns that doctors don't have all the answers. Not even where their own children are concerned.
