Publisher's Summary

It's 1876 and Dr. Viveca Lancaster is frustrated by the limits placed upon female physicians of color. When she is offered the chance to set up a practice in the small all-black community of Grayson Grove, Michigan, she leaves her California home and heads east. The very determined Viveca knows all about fighting for her rights. But she may need more than determination to face down the distractingly handsome Nate Grayson, the Grove's bull-headed mayor.
Nate Grayson goes to the train station expecting Dr. V. Lancaster to be a man. But when the lovely, dark-skinned Viveca introduces herself, he is at first speechless, then orders her back on the train and out of his town! It's 1876 and women aren't supposed to be doctors, men are. However, Nate isn't prepared for this extraordinary beauty's stubbornness and fire, nor for the vivid way she heals - then steals - his heart. Contains mature themes.

Great Story, Not the best narrator :(

Vivid is one of my favorite books of all time. So maybe it's due to the fact that I've read the book several times and I have an idea of how I think it should be read, or perhaps it's because I listen to books all the time...but this reader was not the best. She has a great voice but she's "reading the book" and not performing if that makes any sense. Her extra breaths where a breath doesn't fit is just wearing me OUT! I love Beverly Jenkins and Im not sad that I bought the book. Please give it a try and excuse my frustration. #teambeverlyjenkins...

Yay Vivids on audible"

I have read this book many times. Strong independent brilliant woman bound to follow her dream and practice medicine during this time. Loved the story, enjoyed watching Nate fall in love with Vivica. History love and action all bound together. Great listen. Keep adding Beverly Jenkins books to a Audible and I'll keep listening. :). Would love to hear Thomas Penny voice again. Robin Eller is okay but the male voices are so similar to the female voices I sometimes have to figure out who's talking. Narration could be better. Sorry. Absolutely love Beverly Jenkins historical romances. Own them all would love to be able to listen to them all as well.
