This is the third book in this series. Tamera Alexander has done a wonderful job with all three books! I think this one toped the second one, but I really loved the first one, From A Distance because of the main character's occupation is one of my own as well. Within My Heart was gripping from the first chapter, so feel free to read it in the links below and see if you aren't hooked that quickly as well. ;)
Rachel and Rand are wonderful to read about and Ben and Lydia are able to move us to tears. Tamera did such a beautiful job of showing couples leaning on God in times of such crisis and difficulty.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Dr. Rand Brookston ventured west with the dream of bringing modern medicine to the wilds of the Colorado Rockies, but the townspeople have been slow to trust him. Just as slow in coming is Rand’s dream to build the town a proper clinic. When a patient’s life is threatened, Rand makes a choice—one that sends ripples through the town of Timber Ridge. And through Rachel Boyd’s stubborn heart.
From the beloved, bestselling author of From a Distance and Beyond This Moment comes an unforgettable story about faith in the face of fear, about tarnished hopes and second chances, and ultimately about the resilient courage and tenacity of hearts broken––and mended––by love.
