Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family--and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.
PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother--or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.
But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?
Calvert has to be one of my favourite authors for a tough and uncompromising read. This is realism at its best...and its worst. Complicated relationships, human foibles, emotional angst and a loving Father in Heaven who oversees it all.
There's so much to recommend this book. An aging Newfoundland dog for starters. And a precocious eight-year-old who will charm your socks off. Then there's her beleaguered dad. Solid, dependable, compassionate. Perfect hero material. Just sayin'. :-) And let's not forget the hospital backdrop -- always ups the drama in a heart-racing way. And families that are far from perfect. And plenty of situations so desperate only God can see you through. Oh...and we can't forget the neurotic pampered pooch, Hannah Leigh who is in therapy no less!
Life Support is the kind of read that plays with your emotions. You'll laugh over one page, weep over the next as you witness despair slowly turn into hope. An awesome read!
