This is the second book in the Riverbend Adventures Series, following bk. 1 The First Year. In this book, Gene, a young woman veterinarian, and Evie, a vet. tech, and her best friend both work at the Crossman Veterinary Hospital, in Riverbend, a small town in northern Ontario. The year is 1981, and things were much different for young professional women than they are these days, especially as Gene wished to specialize in large animal medicine, mostly cattle. Gene had established herself very effectively the first year working with the farmers of the valley, but now both ladies are having increasingly more trouble with the Crossmans who own the clinic.
They have some immediate and important decisions to make about their futures, both professional and personal.
This book follows them along their paths.
