A gentle book of love, illness, recovery and hope
Australia (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
“The Further Tales of a Country Doctor” (published by Xlibris AU) is a heart-warming collection of experiences and stories about the two-way nature of caring and healing; how a doctor cares for his patients, but also how their care for him, when he falls ill too, is essential to his recovery.
This touching second new book further chronicles the experiences of Dr. Paul Carter in his country practice. Twenty-five years ago, he moved from inner city Melbourne to a small country town in regional Victoria on a tree-changing whim. In such a small town, he grew to realize that he is not just the family doctor, but also a confidante, advocate, priest, batsman, bowler, banker, topic of gossip and even best man. These are stories of the tapestry of life which is a country practice. Rich, spirited, irresistible, sometimes sombre but overwhelmingly uplifting, the humanity of these stories promises to stay with its readers for a long time.
