Silence of Snow, TheMerriman, Eileen
Both anaesthetist Rory McBride and newly qualified doctor Jodi Waterstone are doing their utmost to have control over their lives. For Jodi it is managing the impossible workload whereas for Rory it is dealing with the unrelenting distress of a procedure gone wrong that is being investigated by the Medical Council. There is some consolation in their fledgling relationship, but for Rory, self-medication is the answer ... until it is not.
Credible and thought-provoking, this contemporary New Zealand story throws light on a medical system demanding one's all, and more.
A great read highlighting many of the problems, frustrations and inadequacies of our health system. Very well-written and certainly had the reader very quickly 'drawn in' and feeling great empathy for the main characters.
