Review from OnlineBookClub.org
I had previously read The Surgeon’s Wife by William H. Cole, so I had not only been excited to read another book by this same author, I had also felt I knew the type of doctor the main character would be. I couldn’t be further from the truth. The main characters in these two books are very different and other than perhaps the writing style, I wouldn’t have known McDowell was by the same author. It reminds me of when you watch a move who an actor portrays a villain where you are used to seeing them as the hero. It takes a little time to get used to, plus it is surprising and a credit to the actor if they do well at both parts. The same with McDowell, the author can write about any character I believe now, and make it in an entertaining book.
I felt so many emotions in this book, mainly aimed at Hiram, but occasionally some other characters. I’m recommending this book to readers who enjoy books that are professionally edited with plenty of in-depth characters, and who like a believable story that is entertaining. This was an easy one for me to rate; this book deserves the rating of 4 out of 4 stars. Is this author the next Robin Cook? Yes, the thought crossed my mind, so I had to check, and yes, he is a surgeon. I look forward to reading another book from this author.
