Aloha, Ladies — this e-mail is from Gay Courter, an author our book club has enjoyed in the past with “Flowers In The Blood”, April 2009. This is her newest book and we are on her “inside” list for personal e-mails. Please let her know if you pick it up and read it!!!
At Long Last…My new novel “Healing Paradise” is published.For now it is only available as an e-book for Kindle, Nook, or iBookstore/Apple. New release price: $6.99.
Even if you don’t have an e-reader, you can read it on your computer with free software or even on your iPhone! Please pass this on to friends/fans who have electronic readers and also encourage people to write a review for Amazon. These are more influential than the NY Times in these cyber days.
In Gay Courter’s long-awaited medical saga, brilliant and beautiful Rosalind Winters enters Cornell Medical School along with the only three other women admitted that year. Few expect her to succeed except for her champion and mentor, Alexander Sawyer. A frightening accident almost ends her career before it begins. She finds clinical excellence in a carnival sideshow, which leads her into the emerging specialty of neonatal medicine. Then forces beyond her control conspire to destroy her hopes and dreams as the Second World War begins and she has to fight for her job, her life and her love. Healing Paradise takes the spellbound reader through the rigors of medical school, the tragic lives of patients felled by the fickle fate of disease, organizing a hospital unit for war, and to the tranquil slopes of a TB sanitorium where every breath is a gift of life. Irresistible in its storytelling power, this is one of the finest medical novels set at the moment in time when new discoveries in antibiotics cured everything—except the problems of the heart.
