From the book’s back cover:
As a biochemist in the early 1900s New York, Doctor Rosalind Werner has dedicated her life to the crusade against water-borne diseases. She is at the forefront of a groundbreaking technology that will change the way water is delivered to every household in the city—but only if she can get people to believe in her work.
Newly appointed Commissioner of Water for New York Nicholas Drake is highly skeptical of Rosalind and her team’s techniques. When a brewing court case throws him into direct confrontation with her, he is surprised by his reaction to the lovely scientist.
While Rosalind and Nick wage a private war against their own attraction, they stand firmly on opposite sides of a battle that will impact far more than just their own lives. As the controversy grows more public and inflammatory and Rosalind becomes the target of an unknown enemy, these two rivals will face higher stakes than they ever could have known.
This historical inspirational romance is the story of a sweet, but tumultuous, romance between New York’s newly appointed Commissioner of Water with his inherited wealth and a European biochemist. In the early 1900s, their mutual interest in water brings them together on opposite sides in a courtroom. She’s working on a new solution to safe drinking water, while he remains skeptical of her proposed process. Regardless of their professional differences, they feel a strong attraction to each other. They both fight this attraction. The story is spiced with intrigue, danger, and suspense throughout the book. Well written with evidence of excellent historical research.
