A Jewish girl of nine, Zoe-Esther Zundelevich gives in to
fancy and secretly visits the village matchmaker before
leaving Russia with her papa, Yitzhak, for refuge in
Amerika. The matchmaker gives Zoe-Esther the name of her
promised match, when she is of age. Zoe-Esther dreams of
him, carrying her dreams across the ocean and into
Times are hard but Zoe-Esther manages the impossible and
becomes one of the few women to graduate from medical school
in 1867 Philadelphia. Afraid for her papaâ€™s life when heâ€™s
stricken with tuberculosis, she moves him to the Colorado
Territory in search of a cure. All she holds dear, Zoe-
Esther can never jeopardize her papaâ€™s health and happiness.
That is precisely what she faces when rugged, handsome Jake
Whiskey comes into her life. She must not give in to her
attraction to a rake, a gambler, a non-Jew! It would kill
her papa, who wants her to marry â€śnice Daniel Stein.â€ť But
the name given Zoe-Esther long ago wasnâ€™t Daniel. It wasnâ€™t
Jake either, no matter how much she might wish it.
Itâ€™s not easy to find work, shelter, or enough food in
Golden City, where people donâ€™t want a woman doctor and
canâ€™t say too much good about Jews either. Zoe-Esther has
faced hard times before, but never with so much at stake.
When she at last meets her match, can she risk losing the
man who now has her heart? Can she sacrifice her own
happiness for her papaâ€™s?
