What would it be like to leave everything you’ve known behind in search of a new life? What would it be like to travel west when the country was young and trying to rebuild itself after the Civil War? What would it be like to see a town that looked inviting and decide in a matter of minutes that this is where you will settle—not knowing anyone or anything about the town? Could you be this brave and leave all ties behind to seek new adventures?
Well, Jamie Burton was. With his M.D. from Boston University, Dr. Jamie Burton headed west to establish a practice. During a brief stop in a small river town in central Missouri, Jamie saw enough to want to stay. This looked like a place where he could hang out his shingle, make some new friends and, hopefully, find someone to share his life. Would it be the best decision of his life or a huge mistake? In Quest for a Younger Love, as Jamie’s life unfolds, he learns that prescribing medicine is not always the best or only way to help others.
