The scene was all too typical-a madhouse of activity with crying children, sleeping drunks, and a crowd of brothers standing at the foot of a stretcher holding a white-haired matriarch struggling to get her breath. The sweet-sour smell of bloody vomit and clinical antiseptic mingled as a familiar odor and prompted me to quicken my pace. pg. 55 Six-Liter Club by Harry Kraus
Teaser Tuesday is a book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.
Harry Kraus’ Six-Liter Club is the latest book I’ve read this year. I was lucky enough to win this book via Kat’s blog Heart to Heart. It is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Kraus weaves a tale of suspense, romance, self rediscovery, ambition, and faith in this medical thriller. Camille, an orphan, has worked hard to excel in academics and has become the first African American woman trauma surgeon at the Medical College of Virginia. Everything seems to be falling into place-a new position, a promising new love interest and a new member of the distinguished six-liter club. Amid the male dominated surgical culture, Camille feels the pressure to conform to the good old boys way of doing things, while being compelled to set her on own mark. At the height of her success, memories from her childhood in the Conga begin to haunt her threatening to ruin everything she’s worked so hard to achieve.
Anxiously anticipating what would happen next, I found myself staying up late into the night reading . As I came to the end of the book, I lingered on the pages sadden that the novel was coming to a close. This was my first time reading any of the author’s work and I was well pleased. I highly recommend this book-it will not disappoint.
