Cristy struggles to decide her feelings for David Grantland and Dr. McNeal, and finds that she becomes disappointed when David can't give solace to a cove resident as she lays dying. He doesn't seem to have confidence in his own faith. Dr. McNeal on the other hand knows exactly how he feels and why. When the cove finds itself in the middle of a typhoid outbreak, Cristy finds herself coming in more contact with Dr. McNeal. When Cristy comes down with the deadly disease, Dr. McNeal nurses her back to health, and they discover the feelings that they can no longer hide from each other.
