What if, through no fault of your own, you become ill and need an organ transplant? Who’s going to come to your rescue when you’re put under a bad surgeon’s knife? In this medical fiction novel, a young woman and her Labrador Retriever flee a barrier island as Hurricane Ivan roars towards them. But a policeman is about to make a horrible mistake.
There is despair and hope, loss and recovery, guilt and romance; and a world of characters who spring to life around the central tragedy of the ensuing car crash and it is through Karen’s organ donation that a woman with liver disease may be given a second chance. But what happens when a pilot aborts the transplant team’s flight? And what becomes of the hurricane-battered dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty wind? And above all, what happens in the operating room during one of the most difficult surgeries performed in medicine?
