    Mel and Jack’s story ❤️

    Sometimes all you need is a fresh start

    When recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees an advert for a midwife in the remote town of Virgin River, she decides this is the perfect place to escape her heartache.

    However, her hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is uninhabitable, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. But when a tiny baby is abandoned on a front porch, Mel must decide whether to stay and help or cut her losses and leave.

    Helped by local barman, and former marine, Jack Sheridan, Mel must face her past, and finds that there may be a future in Virgin River after all.
