Gosh, this was a good book! This was not a typical Tess Gerritsen medical thriller. She moves the story from present time Boston to the mid 1800's Boston, all the while weaving a very interesting tale.
I really enjoyed the way the story gives us a look at what medical school was like in the 1800's. I realize that this is fiction, however, I felt that, as a physician, Gerritsen did her research and the gruesome facts were accurate.
This is also a bit of a love story in a very subtle and sweet way. I will recommend this to anyone that is not too squeamish. Be advised, there is a bit of blood, guts and gore with in the pages of this one.
