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.
In Part One, Laminar Flow, readers find the two stories have a commonality that transcends the barriers of time and place, and leads to the two tales coming together under the watchful eye of the mysterious Drachma.
Really loved the book. It leaves you hanging and I can't wait to start book number two to find out what happens.
Very much enjoyed! Different from anything that's out there. I really felt connected to the characters.
