With the warmth, humor, and compassion we have come to expect, Maeve Binchy tells a story of doctors and staff, patients, family, and friends at a heart clinic in a community caught between the old Ireland and the new.
Dr. Clara Casey agrees to take on the seemingly thankless task of establishing a clinic with little funding—for a year. With her own plate full—two troublesome grown daughters and a needy ex-husband—she is still able to gather a wonderfully diverse and dedicated staff. And before long she has done the impossible, made the clinic a success and a aprt of the community. Now Clara must decide whether or not to stay.
From the Paperback edition.
An Irish heart clinic is the setting for Binchy's latest feel-good novel, which is packed with richly-drawn secondary characters who bring the action and emotion to life. Dr. Clara Casey has been charged with getting the clinic on its feet, despite a lack of significant funding, and she fills the hospital's halls with an assortment of exuberant, dedicated employees who gradually infect the grumpy patients with their infectious cheer. Soon, Dr. Casey must consider whether to extend her temporary stay, now that she and the clinic have become an integral part of the community.
