Storyline

Doc Stuart surprises the people of the valley by announcing that he is going into semi-retirement, working part-time but hiring a new associate, whose arrival in the valley is imminent. Doc Stuart is as surprised as anyone when his new associate, Dr. Craig, arrives. The new doctor has the first name Janet and is female. Janet is as aware as anyone that her gender places her in an uphill battle in winning acceptance as a trusted physician in this rural area, with where she immediately falls in love. She didn't want to announce her gender before arriving in the probability that she would be refused before she even started. Indeed, those in the older generations are against a female doctor for several reasons. Even Betty Jo deep down has the same problem as most of the other wives of the valley of her husband going to see an attractive female doctor. Joe comes up with a plan to get rid of Dr. Craig from the valley. Will Janet buckle under the stress of Joe's plan? Written by Huggo
