About the Book

Martin Wellman was a family practice physician anxious to begin his career in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.  His medical training had prepared him for any contingency—or so he thought.  A lawsuit concerning a HIPPA violation was about to test his faith in the system.  His would-be girlfriend was hiding a bizarre medical condition.  Things were not what they seemed to be in this peaceful river town.  A convicted murderer dying of cancer, a homeless man with a painful secret, a wealthy heiress searching for recognition and a lost grandchild, a dead body along the Mississippi River—They turned Marty’s world upside down, through it all, he learned the meaning of life and Death and found a love that transcended both.
