The first time R.J. defies her beloved father is when she is born a female; the second, when she opts to study law rather than medicine. Yet destiny is to overtake her when, for the first time, R.J. Cole realises that she has inherited The Gift. Holding the hand of a sick man, R.J. feels a dreadful certainty that he is going to die; tragically, the patient is no stranger but her own lover. Struggling with her grief, R.J. knows she must bow to the inevitable, and become a doctor. At first she combines her new talent with her legal work on cases where medical advice is needed, and her diagnostic skill combined with The Gift make her an invaluable consultant. But her life changes when she moves to a small town practice and is faced with a terrible dilemma - and an important choice to make... -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Anyone that enjoys the wonderful writing of Noah Gordon will also love this book. Don't be midled by the less than glowing reviews of other readers. I very nearly did not read this book because of the reviews. I'm so very glad I read the book and made up my own mind as to its value. I found it very entertaining and so glad I got to know Dr. R.J. Cole. Try it - you'll like it.
Brilliant..No more need to be said.
Recommended all round
As a European, I might also care less about the well researched part of the US American health care(less) system. Having lived on 2 continents, experiencing health care in 4 different countries (2 on each side of the pond), I have to really try hard not to ridicule the American system - Americans as a whole deserve better and should be able to find a better solution that benefits everyone. And this sentiment is one central theme here in the book and implicitly showing the solution: less profit, more care.
I love the way Gordon draws his characters and shows their development - so I will go and pick up all other books by him just to enjoy that again.
He allows himself the freedom of not being constrained by history and he actually begins to almost preach on certain subjects. He is obviously disappointed by the failure of HMO's, the failure to pass universal healthcare, the real physical pitfalls of abortion as well as the real social threats involved. He wants it all to work out.
As a physician, to me the book played like a three cord song instead of the symphonies of his other work. HE clearly is some one I would love to talk to though.
Matters is clearly worth reading. Its much better than most of these reviewers allow. It shouldn't be downgraded simply because it falls short of what people expected. If you read the first two parts of the trilogy, then you owe it to yourself to finish the circle and read Matters.
I would have given it four stars except for the ove abundance of liberal rhetoric that he should have worked out better before writing the story. Instead he gnaws on the failures of his beliefs in the book and one grows weary.
