Candace Calvert's Code Triage novel is one of the best Christian fiction books I have read in a long time. It is impossible to list what is not in this book because I felt it was chock full of almost every important issue our society faces today. The most important issue for me in the book is the fact that Main street, America are definitely inhabited by people who are not having their desires met in the way they wish. Sadly, these people become impatient and angry.It is not long before this anger becomes rage. Leigh Stathos, a doctor, in one day faces an out of control man who is a father and husband. Kurt Denton wants his family back with him. He does not care how it happens. The unexpected, horrible situation is one I've seen too often on the news lately. I felt very happy to read about it in the genre called Christian fiction. After such terrible circumstances it is possible to regroup and repeat again "Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.-Psalm 136:26.
This book made me think about the people who put their lives in danger to save the public everyday. They protect strangers. Strangers who are sometimes in such a hurry there is no time to smile, say hello or acknowledge in any way. Cappy, the security guard, who works on hospital floors is one of the people who sacrifices his life daily. He cares deeply about what he is doing to help people. Nick, Leigh's soon not to be husband, is a policeman who gives his heart and soul to save other people like Kristi, a single mother, who is trying very hard to set the right priorities in her life because she loves her children. It is not easy for her. Then, there is Riley, the chaplain in the hospital.Read more ›
I was interested in the medical background in the book since medical fiction is a favorite genre of mine. Calvert didn't disappoint. The medical elements in the book were realistic and well-placed to keep the book moving but not overdone to where non-medical fans would be turned off. I also appreciated the character development in this book. Each of the characters had personalities that you could easily identify with. They weren't "perfect" and had flaws just like regular people. I alternated between being annoyed with Leigh and identifying with her struggles.
I really appreciated the way Calvert addressed issues like violence, children with special needs, and struggles with marriage. These are real-world issues that face regular people. It was nice to see them portrayed in a novel in a thoughtful way. I also appreciated that while this was a Christian fiction novel, it wasn't your syrupy-sweet, everything's perfect novel. There were real issues faced by real people. I will definitely be looking for the other books in this series.
Tyndale House provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review of this book.
