Erick's Dilemma is the story of Erick Jamison, who was born in Texas and lives on his parent's ranch. He lives there with his father, Phillip, who serves in the military, and his mother, Maria, who is a school teacher, as well as a trauma nurse. He has two younger brothers and sisters, whom he sits with while his mother is working around the ranch or at the trauma center in the next town. Everyone loves Erick, as well as he loves all the people of the town, for he has given his life many times to save them while trying to keep it a secret from his mother. What will happen when he is faced with his greatest challenge, not the actual rescue, but to disobey his mother's wishes and perform the most difficult rescue yet.
