Journal Entry 1 by MarthaEllen from Detroit, Michigan USA on Saturday, July 09, 2011
A great summer read set in a doctors office which is spirally out of control due events in the lives of doctors and their staff. Everything comes into play marriage, death of a beloved spouse, sexual orientation and reglion. The story is told from the different characters point of view, which made it hard for me to put the book down.

Journal Entry 3 by ravencat at Lancaster, New York USA on Sunday, September 25, 2011
As a nurse who did work in a multi-physician office at one time I could really relate and appreciate this story. I did enjoy it being told from the different office personnel perspectives and as I might have guessed the author is also a physician as her medical knowledge that was incorporated in the story was right on. Thank-you MarthEllen for sharing this book with me.

Update 26 NOV 2011: Now will be an Intn'l Bookray. The usual rules apply and please check mailing order as it may change due to addition of participants and their shipping preferences. Thank-you and enjoy the book.

Journal Entry 13 by carelaisa at Québec, Québec Canada on Sunday, April 01, 2012
What got me to read this book was the fact it was set in a medical office. But, it’s not the type of book where dirty things are happening – it’s more about relationships between people and how they act can affect the others, and ultimately the whole functioning of the clinic. None of the characters are perfect, a point that I liked about this book. The pace is okay but, sometimes it takes too long to get to the point – they are lengths in the text which makes it “slow”, parts that I think could have been cut and make the whole story much better. Overall, I liked it and got the idea of the author, which wanted to tell the stories of people working in the health system but not in a hospital, people who are yearning for things in life. Not sure though I would read her other books.

Will now pm the next bcer to have her address so I can mail the book this week...

EDIT: as of April 8th, I still haven't rec'd an answer to my 1st pm, so I'm sending a new one...
