Inhaltsangabe: A young, successful New York doctor is devasted to learn that her lover is stricken with leukaemia. In order to help him she turns to alternative treatments and uncovers the shared past of some women who had possessed extraordinary powers of healing. The author has also written "The Books of Rachel", "Maura's Dream", "Home of the Brave" and "This Year in Jerusalem".
From Library Journal:
To describe various approaches to healing, Gross ( The Books of Rachael ) again uses the device of focusing on several fictional women placed throughout history. Present-day surgeon Elizabeth Grant is confronted with her lover's acute leukemia, her profession's inability to help him, and his own intention to end it all. Her story is interspersed with those of earlier healers: Corinna in 5th-century B.C. Greece, Lioba of 8th-century France, Annie of 18th-century England, and Fenella, a 19th-century American. Medical approaches include invoking deities, casting out devils, and blood-letting. Each woman has the gift of healing and usually employs touch in a way that calls for the force or spirit within the individual to fight the illness. Although related dramatically, the stories lack life. Gross fails to attain the impact or successful portrayals of earlier novels. Consider where following demands. Ellen Kaye Stoppel, Drake Univ. Law Lib., Des Moines
