The idea that put this novel together is the main reason I picked it up. To avoid a back cover recap, I’ll just say: it was interesting. Working in a medical field as my work-a-day job, I was intrigued by this concept to let that world enter a bit of my fiction entertainment.
Published in 2002, a reader can definitely see where Christian fiction has progressed and become a stronger force to be reckoned with. Much of the novel was a bit wordy for my taste, but Claire as a character, and her circumstances pushed the novel forward on a solid stride. I do admit to skimming the extraneous verbiage the deeper into the story I got, but still gleaned much in the way of these character’s lives.
This particular novel delves deeper into the terminology and the life of a surgeon intern. I could see readers getting lost in all the terms, but since I work in it, I was able to follow pretty well. Definitely a couple twists, including an excellent one at the end I didn’t see coming. Worth reading to find that one!
All in all, I can’t say it’s my favorite, but I’ve loved a more recent release by the same author, so will continue to read upcoming novels.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
