In return, the student contracted to practice medicine in the local clinic for the next six years. Kirsi Royston is that doctor and now she must tell the town she is leaving at summer's end. Family responsibilities demand she return to California. She promises she'll find a replacement and all will be well. Doug Erickson, M. D. doubts that.

In the midst of their conflict over Kirsi wanting to break the contract comes the unthinkable. Meth is creeping into the county, poisoning students at the local high school. And the local eccentric, a woman who has bullied the town for years, finds herself needing help. Kirsi wants to provide that--another reason for the townspeople to grumble.
