Charity realizes she is in a rut. She was unable to go to university to study for a career do to family and finacial restraints. Taking a course in typing and shorthand enabled her to find a position at the local hospital. Having to deal with the almost illegible scribbles of the doctors, especially Professor Jake Wyllie-Lyon, adds little variation to her dull routine. Even the man she has gone out with for years did not spark anything in her.
Jake always gets what he wants. While a patient man, he has to try and sort out the screts Charity holds close at hand about the men in her life. Having her come and work directly for him gives him better access, but also a juggling act to try and keep business separate from personal.
A really sweet, uplifting story.
