Silence of Snow, The

Merriman, Eileen

  8 Reviews

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.

Lots of discussion re the state of mind and reasons for the hopelessness of folk who continually need to medicate to cope with life and adversities. The tragedy of losing a young life - we all thought the author had captured and drawn excellent characters - we were all moved by and totally aligned with the beautiful ending.

Very good discussion, as quite a hot topic at the moment with doctor stress and shortages.

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.
