Writing with all the passion of Love Story and power of The Class, Erich Segal sweeps us into the lives of the Harvard Medical School's class of 1962. His stunning novel reveals the making of doctors - what makes them tick, scheme, hurt...and love. From the crucible of med school's merciless training through the demanding hours of internship and residency to the triumphs - and sometimes tragedies - beyond, Doctors brings to vivid life the men and women who seek to heal but who must first walk through fire. At the novel's heart is the unforgettable relationship of Barney Livingston and Laura Castellano, childhood friends who separately find unsettling celebrity and unsatisfying love - until their friendship ripens into passion. Yet even their devotion to each other, even their medical gifts may not be enough to save the one life they treasure above all others. Doctors - heartbreaking, witty, inspiring, and utterly, grippingly real - is a vibrant portrait that culminates in a murder, a trial...and a miracle.
I was so excited to see one of my favorite books available, but almost all of the other characters except Barney & Laura are missing. Nothing about the lapsed priest, or Dr Death, or even the wonderful back story of Bennett. I was so disappointed I returned it
