|This is a memoir. The author is the daughter of a country doctor whose whole life, and that of his wife, has been dedicated to the patients of a small backwoods town in Tennessee. When her mother has a heart attack, Carolyn returns home to help her father for what she believes will be a short time but becomes much more. She has left a very fast paced job in Washington, DC, as a U.S. State Council and finds herself dealing with many unexpected situations, some medical and some emotional.
I enjoyed the book very much. It is written with both humor and an insight into the lives of the inhabitants of this tiny town. It is about finding your place in life and learning that one person can make a difference, however small, in many lives. -- Added by Sanibel on 02/26/2014
