Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Noble Vision was a ForeWord magazine Book-of-the-Year Award winner and a finalist in the Writer's Digest International Book Awards contest, one of only six picks in mainstream fiction. It also was a finalist in the Midwest Book Awards competition and took second place in the Illinois Women's Press Association Fiction Contest.The novel is considered “very highly recommended reading” by Midwest Book Review, and it earned endorsements from American Medical Association past president Edward Annis, syndicated columnist Walter E. Williams, magazine magnate Steve Forbes, and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman.The novel portrays the love story of a beautiful ballerina of the New York stage whose life is shattered by a tragic accident and a young neurosurgeon determined to save her. The dancer's only hope is the surgeon's breakthrough procedure to repair damaged nerves. The treatment, however, does not have the required approval of their state-run health system, CareFree, a bureaucracy wracked with cost overruns and other, politically motivated priorities. The doctor must ultimately take on the entire health system to fight for his work, his ideals, and the woman he loves.As innovative as its surgeon-protagonist, Noble Vision breaks the mold that encases much of today's fiction. In an age in which plot stories and character studies, not to mention romances and thrillers, appear in separate categories of fiction, and thought-provoking themes are rare, Noble Vision combines a rich mix of story elements in one satisfying read. It is a nail-biting thriller, a passionate love story, and a duel of the conflicting ideas piercing the heart of medicine today.Noble Vision is published by Winged Victory Press, whose mission is to publish stories of unusual people doing unusual things, stories with something important to say, and stories that inspire us to achieve our dreams. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

The defects of government-controlled medicine are dramatized effectively in this page-turning story of the love of a brilliant physician for a beautiful ballerina who becomes his patient.

---MILTON FRIEDMAN, Nobel laureate economist

 

Salutary tale of what can happen to medical breakthroughs if Big Government claws even deeper into our healthcare system!

---STEVE FORBES, President and CEO, Forbes magazine

 

. . . an intriguing novel about how unintended consequences of good intentions can have a devastating impact on the healing professions. Unfortunately for us, Noble Vision, while a novel, comes too close to describing today's reality in medical practice. As such, it should serve as a wake-up call to free medical practice from the heavy hand of government.

---WALTER WILLIAMS, syndicated columnist

 

. . . Noble Vision is a chilling suspense story, with an intricate plot that thickens as the author explores deeper and deeper into the lives and minds of the characters. A well-researched . . . sensitively written . . . inherently captivating novel of suspense, Noble Vision is very highly recommended reading.

---MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

 

Gen LaGreca’s novel does more to debunk the theory of nationalized healthcare than 90-percent of the non-fiction rebuttals on the market. It illustrates through a well-crafted plot the evils of bureaucratically managed healthcare while entertaining the reader at the same time. . . . The mounting conflicts of this lovingly sculpted first novel will keep you turning pages well into the night.

---LAISSEZ FAIRE BOOKS

 

A gripping story superimposed on today's threats to quality medical care. It's a great novel standing on its own, even without any medicine in it. However, this remarkable book also demonstrates the dire results of medical decisions made by non-medical bureaucrats and power-hungry politicians. Admittedly a novel, it is filled with truths of today.

---EDWARD ANNIS, MD, Past President, American Medical Association

 

The novel deals with some of the most serious issues of the day, lending the story an immediacy and vibrancy. The author's prose is polished and professional.

---WRITER'S DIGEST magazine

 

It was a wonderful surprise and a great joy to discover Noble Vision. It is an absolute page-turner of a novel with a strong pro-market message.

---JOHN BLUNDELL, author of Margaret Thatcher: A Portrait of the Iron Lady

 

. . . a novel about liberty . . . If you like Ayn Rand's novels, you'll like this one.

---EZRA LEVANT, publisher, The Western Standard

 

. . . [Noble Vision] captivated me from beginning to end. Its grim vision of the near future---or is it the present?---of medicine is all too accurate. Can a few men and women of principle turn it around? One must have hope.

---JANE ORIENT, MD, Executive Director, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

 

The novel both communicates and concretizes important philosophical insights and also deals with a very important practical problem, i.e. the future of medical care in the United States. It is truly a pleasure to read a first class novel which incorporates Ayn Rand's philosophy.

---JOHN ALLISON, Chairman of the Board, BB&T

 

A beautifully crafted and completely engaging novel. I read it in one sitting. It made me want to stand up and cheer!

---JAMES VAWTER, MD

 

Noble Vision takes on a controversial issue---health care and what is wrong with it. It's an inspiring, eye-opening book that the general public will enjoy and a must-read for healthcare professionals.

---HUNTSVILLE TIMES, Alabama

 

A remarkable first novel . . .

---GALEN INSTITUTE, Health Policy Matters

 

Noble Vision is a fine read. I got so drawn into the characters and plot. It reminded me of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead.

---JUDITH KLEINFELD, PhD, University of Alaska psychology professor and author of Go for It!

 

Noble Vision is a wonderful literary achievement. An extraordinary hero, a tender love story, a fascinating medical discovery, and an intense family conflict are dramatically interwoven in a plot that surprises and delights.

---EDITH PACKER, JD, PhD, psychologist

 

Noble Vision is a suspenseful tale of one surgeon’s heroic struggle to save his work and the woman he loves. It inspires us to search inside ourselves for what we know to be true---and to seek the courage to live by it. Intertwined with her gripping plot, the author presents a convincing repudiation of the presumed benevolence of socialized medicine. Truly a story for every patient and every physician!

---BETH HAYNES, MD

 

A fiction reader’s delight! Noble Vision has villains you will despise and heroes you’d love to meet. Add intrigue, betrayal, romance---you’ll be captured till the end and long for Gen LaGreca’s next novel!

---KAREN TIERNEY, MD

 

Noble Vision is a medical thriller that tackles pressing issues in medicine today, and there's romance, too. The writing, plot, and pacing knocked my socks off. I'm a very picky editor, so if I say this author can write, she can write!

---KATHARINE O'MOORE-KLOPF, KOK Edit
