Book #1 in The McFadden Series by Mary L. King

New England provides the perfect setting for the first novel in The McFadden Series—the story of Dr. Lauren McFadden and her physical therapist husband, Bryan. Together, they combine their professional skills and artistic talents to create a safe haven for a handful of homeless teens.


Dr. Lauren McFadden survived the accidental explosion that nearly took her life. It took months for her injuries to heal, but now she's back at her orthopedic practice at Saint Michael's Rehabilitation Center. Bryan, her devoted husband, is in charge of the physical therapy unit at the center.

Lauren has more to deal with at work than broken bodies, difficult parents, and a demanding surgery schedule. She's fighting new financial policy regulations that are depriving patients of needed services. Arguments with the center's administrator reach a blistering climax just two days before Christmas, and as a result, the doctor and her husband both turn in their resignations.

The couple doesn't just toss their careers without a backup plan. For the past several months, they've been building a resort-style mansion in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. Following their dream, Dr. McFadden and Bryan are going to provide a home and unlimited rehabilitation services to seriously injured young patients that have no place else to go.

Adam is the first to arrive at the estate; he’s been diagnosed with a seizure disorder. Devon’s emotional pain started long before he had his bicycle accident. Philip is so traumatized by what his parents did to him that he's unable to talk.

The McFaddens soon discover that administering physical rehabilitation is a walk in the park compared to rebuilding three troubled young lives. They knew it wasn't going to be easy, but they never anticipated the law getting involved, and that's just for starters. Can they really turn these boys around and repair damages that go much deeper than broken bones? And will the boys be able to extend the same understanding shown to them when a gay college student becomes a patient in their home?
