Heart in the Right Place
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Carolyn Jourdan, an attorney on Capitol Hill, thought she had it made. But when her mother has a heart attack, she returns home—to the Tennessee mountains, where her father is a country doctor and her mother works as his receptionist. Jourdan offers to fill in for her mother until she gets better. But days turn into weeks as she trades her suits for scrubs and finds herself following hazmat regulations for cleaning up bodily fluids; maintaining composure when confronted with a splinter the size of a steak knife; and tending to the loquacious Miss Hiawatha, whose daily doctor visits are never billed. Most important, though, she comes to understand what her caring and patient father means to her close-knit community.
With great humor and great tenderness, Heart in the Right Place shows that some of our biggest heroes are the ones living right beside us.

A Delightful Read
Having grown up on a farm in Missouri, I really enjoyed the references to rural life. I can relate to so much that she described, and she described it in such an entertaining way. It is so nice to know that there are others who appreciate the traditional country ways.
