A simply beautiful book, beatifully written and a beautiful story with messages for living well sprinkled throughout.
The author is a surgeon and there are medical terms here and there which seems to be a turnoff for some but it's easy enough to understand if you don't let yourself get bogged down. It's not necessary.
This book and its story will be with me forever. Wish I had read it when it first came out in 2009. Those in the medical field will love it, for sure, and it may make them a better caregiver.
What a novel! I'm amazed and expect this to be the best book I'll read this year.
