While there were a few interesting and poignant stories in the book (Julie's story in particular), I found myself having a hard time finishing! The author reveals very specific details about her patients' lives, but she was pretty vague and guarded about her own. For example, she talks about a "mystery illness" that was really affecting her quality of life, but instead of exploring how that made her feel, she glosses over it, and never provides much closure to the reader. This book was a bit of a downer, and I don't think I'd recommend it.
