Excerpt from A Surrendered Heart by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller, book 3 of The Broadmoor Legacy, published by Bethany House Publishers

When cholera strikes Rochester, New York, in the spring of 1899, the members of the Broadmoor family flee to their castle home in the Thousand Islands. But Amanda Broadmoor, who has always held a special compassion for the less fortunate, resolves to remain in Rochester with Dr. Blake Carstead, working to help control the spread of the dreaded disease.

However, much more than Amanda's health hangs in the balance. Mishandling of the family fortune threatens to leave the Broadmoor family penniless--and even willing to sacrifice Amanda's future. Will she be forced to marry a man she disdains in order to save the Broadmoor legacy?

CHOLERA ON THE RISE! EPIDEMIC ANTICIPATED
IN ROCHESTER!
 Amanda Broadmoor glanced at the imprudent headline thatemblazoned last night’s edition o the Rochester
Democrat and 
Chronicle.
 Why must the newspaper exaggerate? People wouldbe rightened into a genuine panic with such ill-advised newsreporting. Turning the headline to the inside, she creased the
paper and slipped it beneath a stack o mail on the marble-
topped table in the lower hallway o her amily’s ashionable
home. Certain this most recent newspaper article would cause yet another amily squabble, she had hidden the paper in herbedroom the previous evening.No doubt the glaring headline had increased sales or the

owner o the press. The paper had been quick to report our
recent deaths attributed to the dreaded disease, and with an early 
spring and unrelenting rains, a number o prominent amilieshad already ed the city. Ater yesterday’s report, more would
surely ollow. And or those who didn’t possess the wherewithalto ee, the report would serve no purpose but to heighten their
ear.O course the Broadmoors were among the social elite o Rochester, New York. Amanda had never known need or want,
and when bad things dared to rear their ugly heads, she had been
careully sheltered rom the worst o it. All that had changed,however, when she decided to seek a career in medicine. At twenty-one, Amanda elt she had the right to make herown way in lie, but her ather and mother hardly saw it that
 way. Their attitudes reected those o their peers and the world
around them. Women working in the medical feld were highly rowned upon, and a woman o Amanda’s social standing wasreared to marry and produce heirs, not to tend the sick. Espe-cially not those suering rom cholera.“And Mama can be such an alarmist.”
 At the frst report Amanda’s mother had suggested theentire amily take reuge at their summer estate located on
Broadmoor Island in the St. Lawrence River. But that idea hadbeen immediately vetoed by her ather. Jonas Broadmoor had
avowed his work would not permit him to leave Rochester. And Amanda agreed with her ather’s decision. Ater devoting much
o her time and energy to medical training at Dr. Carstead’s
side, Amanda couldn’t possibly desert her work—not now—not
 when she was most needed.
 Amanda glanced at the clock. Her mother would expect her
or breakast, but remaining any longer would simply ensure
a tearul plea or her to cease working with Dr. Carstead. She
