Imagine the best day of your life…then imagine the worst. For flight nurse, Natalie Mercer, these images converge one hot afternoon on the doorsteps of an Atlanta trauma center as her husband is gunned down in a drive-by shooting and the lives of Natalie and her unborn child are left hanging in the balance.
In the aftermath of the tragedy, Natalie relocates from the city to the Georgia mountains with hopes of finding refuge from the physical and emotional strain of her loss. She accepts a position as a flight nurse for a Rescue Flight Service and begins to build a new life for herself and her unborn child. She also meets retired baseball player and helicopter pilot, Jake Adams, who has demons of his own to conquer. After a rocky start, the couple begins to see that the key to finding a new life…and a new love…might just be right before their eyes.
“Gifts of Life” is a story of grief, hope, and one woman’s reclaiming of life and love following personal tragedy. It is the tale of how the high-stress job of flight nursing can both break you and inspire you. Finally, it is a story of love and family, tempered by the soothing effects of southern charm and life in the Georgia mountains. It is the story of Natalie and Jake…it is the story of LIFE.
