The doctor's patchwork family Having accepted a new job and rejected a marriage proposal, Dr Erin Carmody was already reeling. After crashing her car and staggering to the door of GP Dom Carmichael, she barely knew which way was up. And that's how she reasoned the crazy, wonderful attraction she felt for this man on first sight. Then, as Erin began to heal, she began to believe the unbelievable. She was meant to be here, helping Dom care for the people of Bombadeen, being a mother to his two little foster sons, and above all as Dom's wife. He's shown her what true love is, and she'll do the same for him, if he'll only let her convince him that what they have is truly real.
