A Maine country doctor seems to have a miracle cure for every ailment in his mysterious pink pills. But his curative abilities came at a steep price that has just come due.

A long serving country doctor is well known and well respected for his compassion and skills. His wife serves as his office assistant and is devoted to him and his work. After 25 years she even tolerates the strange visits from an attractive and sophisticated woman with whom her husband has dealings of an unknown nature. After her visits he is unsettled and irritable but she is critical to his successful practice.

A decent story about a doctor who has does well in a small community for 25 years, but we find out why he has done so well in this story and the price he is to pay for it. Interesting in that the benefactor doesn't really realize what they have put in motion until the end.
