It was all that he wanted, a new life for Dr Alex Storm. Promotion to Specialist A and E Registrar at a good hospital in the North. He would be near his mother, his sister and her family, near the countryside he loved so much. Then a devastating letter made all his dreams and hopes seem futile. He would have to find release in work. Charge Nurse Sam Burns thinks the new registrar is definitely something special. They work well together, they become friends and soon it is obvious to her that they could be more than friends. But she knows something is wrong - why is Alex so afraid of committal? Somehow she must find out - and together they can solve the problem!
