Interestingly, the author has chosen to go against convention (he's Catholic) and dress like the Amish plus wear a beard and long hair like them.
This book is very well written and the editing is perfect. You can read a little bit at at a time because the book is broken down into a number of different house calls and experiences. I highly recommend this book.
I don't actually live all that far away from where this all takes place and have been through the area often. I like to think that I could have passed the good Dr and his wife on their way to a house call -- although, probably not.
I have already downloaded the next book so I can read more of the good doctor's experiences. The stories are short so I can read one or a few at a time - depending on how much time I have to spend. Didn't take long at all to finish the entire book!
Been a long time since I had a doctor who made house calls. Wish there were more doctors like this still around today! He really seemed to care about what was best for the patient.
