From San Francisco to Paris, four talented trauma doctors are given a life-changing opportunity in this gripping medical drama by Danielle Steel.
Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for the little time he can spend with his children. A rising star at her teaching hospital, it leaves Stephanie Lawrence no time for her young family. Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor, trapped in an affair with a married cardiac surgeon. And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals his superb medical skills, but he refuses to let anyone get too close.
These exceptional doctors are chosen for a unique project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training programme. But after an unspeakable act of mass violence, their temporary life becomes a stark turning point: a time to make hard choices – with consequences that will last a lifetime.
