Set in the jungles of the Amazon, Kate Wilson begins work as a volunteer nurse in a small clinic only to discover that the town is an agricultural source of the coca plant. Fresh out of high school, Kate struggles to find her place in the world until a trip to South America leads to a chance encounter with a stranger, followed by her witnessing a tragedy. Pulled into the tragic events that unfolded before her, and left with the idea planted by the stranger, she discovers her calling in life, to be a nurse working as a volunteer. Her life in the rainforest takes an unexpected turn when the government steps in to wipe out the drugs being grown and the cartel seeks retribution. Things become more complicated when the doctor she works with and has fallen for, risks his life to protect her. Will he get her out in time?
My bio is that I lived in South America for three years, including one in the rainforest. I am currently working part time as a Register Nurse.
