I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Trauma Plan - Candace Calvert

Chaplain Riley Hale is a nurse who after a vicious assault that left her with lasting injuries, is trying to get back to her life as an ER nurse.  Struggling to prove herself capable, she volunteers at a local free clinic that is not loved at all by it's upscale neighbors.  There she meets it's director, Dr. Jack Travis, a gruff man who seems to have a lot of baggage of his own.  Desperate to save his clinic, Jack will use any means necessary to keep it open.  Even if it means using Riley's family name.  Can they both put their trust in God to fight their battles and heal their wounded hearts?

This was the first time I have read one of Candace Calvert's novels; and it definitely won't be my last.  This book starts with action right away and doesn't let up until the end.  The various trauma scenes through out the book are so well written.  Easy enough for the average person to understand the medical jargon but thrilling enough that you can't help but feel like you are right there.  The struggles with trusting God that Riley and Jack have are so real and heart wrenching at times.  I hope that there will be more in this series and now have to track down her other three novels.  I highly recommend this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my review.

  1. Leigh-Anne, I so appreciate your thoughtful (and enthusiastic!) review of my newest medical drama. It is, indeed, the first book in my new Grace Medical series. I'm honored as well by your interest in the Mercy Hospital series (Critical Care, Disaster Status, and Code Triage--which introduces nurse Riley Hale of Trauma Plan). Thank you for all you do to help put good stories into the hands of eager readers.
    Blessings, Candace
