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
About the Author
People who are inspired by the novels and philosophy of Ayn Rand will enjoy this author's work.
Genevieve (Gen) LaGreca won two national literary awards for Noble Vision, her gripping novel about a visionary doctor who wants to practice medicine by his own judgment and conscience, but his state’s health system requires otherwise. The novel won a ForeWord magazine Book-of-the-Year Award and was a finalist in the Writer’s Digest 13th international book awards---two of the most prestigious honors in the world of independent publishing.
Gen is a former pharmaceutical chemist and a fiction and social-commentary writer. She’s been a guest on the Glenn Beck Show, and her commentaries have appeared in the Orange County Register, Daily Caller, Real Clear Politics, Rocky Mountain News, Gainesville Sun, and other publications. She has been a lively guest speaker at the national conference, FreedomFest, and she has discussed her gripping novel on the Barry Farber Show and other talk-radio programs.
Asked what moved her to write Noble Vision, author Gen LaGreca replies, “After years of working in the healthcare industry, I feel as if I’m witnessing the slow death of something great, something that shouldn’t be allowed to die---America’s gold standard of medicine.” Why did she choose to write fiction? “Ever since I read Gone With the Wind at age 13, I’ve been enthralled by sweeping novels that capture a historic moment in an unforgettable way. I wanted to tell the story of what’s happening in medicine today---how it, too, could be gone with the wind---through the spellbinding magic of fiction.”
Gen is currently working on two more novels, and she has completed the screenplay adaptation of Noble Vision. For more information, see: www.WingedVictoryPress.com.
