Sacred Trust by Hannah Alexander (reprint)
If you liked the fast-paced energy of ER or the medical drama of Chicago Hope but are seeking a positive message and uplifting characters, then Sacred Trust is a book you should check out, STAT. In it you will be taken into the emergency room, a realm of chaos and miraculous control. Life-and-death decisions are made here in just fractions of a second by men and women touched with extraordinary gifts of healing. When this narrow balance between confusion and order is disturbed, things can go very wrong.
Author Hannah Alexander introduces Dr. Lukas Bower, an ER physician with a rocky past who finds himself close to toppling over the line into turmoil. Disgusted with the politics that interfered with his work at a big-city hospital, Bower decided to take a new position in a small town. This new job, however, has its own set of rules and regulations, and the ER director vows to send Bower packing if he doesn't play along.
Faced with the loss of everything he holds dear, Bower examines what his job truly means to him. Medicine is more than a vocation; it's a sacred trust and everyone who enters his medical world—from the suicidal widower to the obese man struggling for a sense of dignity—deserves the best he can offer. This integrity, though, may end up costing him his career.
A tale of justice and restitution, Sacred Trust combines medical expertise with an engaging story that opens the doors to the fascinating province of emergency medicine for you to enjoy.
