Alicia Foster is a resident nurse at Harrington Hospital in the neighboring town of Chestnut Creek. She had just started her career there when she met Dr. Hans Loeb. Over time, however, things started slowly, but steadily, falling apart after Dr. Loeb’s father was paralyzed, and then died a few years later. With Dr. Loeb’s attention focused more on his work than on their suffering relationship, Alicia made the very difficult decision to end the romance for the time being, and possibly for good.
