Dr Claire McCall has her eyes fixed on her wedding plans and her life with future husband, John Cerelli. John is slowly recovering from his devastating motor vehicle injuries and together they are determined to embrace their future and no longer allow Claire’s diagnosis of Huntington’s Disease to impact the present. While Claire is relishing her job medical practice at the Stoney Creek Family Practice Clinic despite its demanding nature she finds her nights are bound by fear due to her near rape. While her attacker is in jail, she is sleeping with a gun and hiding her irrational fears from John and her mother.
Harry Kraus’s third tale of Dr Claire McCall, following on from the excellent Could I Have This Dance? and For the Rest of My Life, sheds more light on Claire McCall’s family and the destructive consequences of the incurable Huntington’s Disease upon the sufferer and their family. It is a relational drama, suspense novel and mini-medical text rolled into one book!
Harry Kraus’ medical experience gives the medical information authenticity and provides much needed insight into the debilitating condition that is Huntington’s Disease. The mystery keeps the reader guessing and Claire’s own sleuthing is interesting to follow. Intertwined with all the action is a message of grace, faith and hope. All up a good addition to this series.
