In post–Civil War San Francisco, a forward-thinking female physician falls in love with a man who may have murdered his wife
Jake Parrish is Dr. Hallie Gardiner’s last hope. She needs a wealthy and powerful benefactor to save her foundering mission hospital in Philadelphia, and Jake, known as Young Midas, is just the kind of person she’s looking for. At Parrish’s magnificent San Francisco mansion, Hallie is stunned to discover that his pregnant wife, Serena, is suffering from a severe emotional disturbance that has caused her to lose touch with reality. At times, she is violent and incoherent; at others, she is frighteningly lucid. Drawn into Serena’s bizarre world, Hallie does her best to help. But not long after Serena has her baby, she is found dead.
Is Jake Parrish a cold-blooded murderer? Or a grieving widower haunted by terrible memories of war? As she falls dangerously in love with the handsome ex-soldier, Hallie tries to ignore the whispers. Her efforts to heal Jake—and uncover the truth about his wife’s death—backfire when someone threatens her life and her chance for future happiness.
Yesterday’s Roses is the 1st book in the Parrish Novels, which also includes Tomorrow’s Dreams.
