Beyond the Surgeon's Touch: One Miracle Away from Death Paperback – February 20, 2009

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I had to read this book in stages. I would read one story at a time, then go on about my day and read another later on or the next day. There was so much emotion wrapped up in each story that I couldn't imagine "switching" my brain off of the one I had just read and on to another equally distressing.
I thought about the stories frequently and will probably continue to do so. Every story is so touching in it's own way. I began to think about how much I take for granted every single day. Most daily problems are dealable...but diseases and accidents and the behavior of others...we don't have a lot of control in the turns such things can take in our lives.
I didn't notice grammatical or spelling errors which I can't ever seem to ignore, so it seems the author has done some recent updating. Other reviews are stating there are many such errors but I don't remember coming across anything. Those things make me nuts so - either they've been fixed since the other reviews or this book was some kind of good to get past me without noticing!
Update: OK I read the rest of the book, I just could not stay away from it. The last three stories were so beautiful. One guy who was standing next to me on the train was actually reading my kindle along with me and asked me what was the name of the book. He said it was so gripping he had to get it for himself (story with the little girl with the enlarged heart). Just get the book.
Gloria Teague is becoming one of my favorite authors.
I'm disappointed I couldn't review both the print version and the Kindle version, because both deserve equal credit.
