What does being a doctor really feel like? What is it like to get called out in the middle of the night to care for a desperately ill patient, to be the one everyone depends on? Bob Gilsen knows only too well. And what does a 15th-century physician, who gets called out in the middle of the night in winter, possibly have to offer his patient? This is the beginning of The Book of Drachma, a novel of medicine, murder, fantasy, and self-discovery, set in two times and places. It is a novel for the curious, for those who really wish to know what it means to be a doctor, in this, as well as past ages.
Dr. Bob Gilsen has been transported to a world far different from the one he once knew; a world more primitive and cruel, a world without modern comforts and technology, yet a world that desperately needs his knowledge and skills as a healer. Thus, The Book of Drachma continues in Coaptation. Nurse Judy Morrison, attempting to pick through the mystery of her colleague’s strange disappearance, finds herself pulled unwittingly from her well-worn existence into a place of chaos and snowy danger.
In Turbulence and Restoration, the third installment in the Drachma series, a riveting compilation of fantasy, magic, and medical discovery, Bob Gilsen and Judy continue in their quest in search of the only man who has all the answers to their mysterious circumstances. How did they travel through time and through the ages back to the fifteenth century? Why were they there, and would they ever go back? Who was this elder of the forest responsible for their travel back in time? Would they ever meet him? And what secrets lay written in the pages of the elusive Book of Drachma?
