Heart and Soul
New York Times Bestseller
A story of patients and staff, family, and friends who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old Ireland and the new.
Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the underfunded clinic and agrees to take it on for a year. She has plenty on her plate already—two difficult adult daughters and the unwanted attentions of her ex-husband—but she assembles a wonderfully diverse staff devoted to helping their demanding, often difficult patients.
Before long the clinic is established as an essential part of the community, and Clara must decide whether or not to leave a place where lives are saved, courage is rewarded, and humor and optimism triumph over greed and self-pity.
"Good-hearted and entertaining.... Offers many honest pleasures." —The Washington Post
