Series: Claire McCall
As nightmares plague her and drive a wedge between her and John, she suspects that her father may have molested her during one of his drunken sprees. Her sessions with therapist, Joanne Phillips, make her wonder if she should confront her father who is dying of Huntingtons. One of the few things hes been able to do is request help in dying. John has other problems as his co-worker, Ami Grandle, becomes obsessed with him. She refuses to accept his engagement to Claire, and John does not know how to deal with the beautiful young woman. When Ami files a complaint with the medical board accusing Claire of euthanizing her stepfather and then rigs a situation at work to look as if John has assaulted her, John nearly loses Claire. Tyler Crutchfields escape from prison endangers Claire and her whole family. He promises to come back to finish what he had started in For the Rest of My Life.
Harry Krauss expertise as a doctor comes across in this medical thriller, All Ill Ever Need. However, its his skill as a writer that gives the story such force. Kraus skillfully piles one problem on top of another for Claire and John, until the reader wonders how Claire can stand one more problem. For that matter, can the reader stand one more problem? During the ordeal, Claire continually returns to verses on trust, such as Isaiah 64:8, to remind herself that she is the clay and God is the potter, and that she can trust Him.
Drawing us deeply into the lives of his characters, Kraus pulls the plotlines together to form a powerful story about learning to trust when all around us falls apart. Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
Ladonna Fager5 Stars Out Of 5December 9, 2009Ladonna FagerWOW! This was a great conclusion to the Claire McCall series! It was definitely a page-turner. I had already enjoyed getting to know Claire in the two previous books and was so glad to see the author outdid himself to finish her story. Her reaction to the attack on her physical body really showed how this type of experience can be an attack on your spiritual being also. That experience alone would have been enough to give the story power, but adding the euthanasia and the death of her own father just packed the story full. Thanks for a great book!
Anneka5 Stars Out Of 5April 8, 2009AnnekaI LOVE Harry Kraus' books! I stumbled upon the first one of this series and wasn't overly interested b/c the cover made it look like one of those predictable romances -- but these books are different! Not predictable at all, and captivating. Interspersed w/ real medical "stuff" made them informative too! GREAT author!
Jeannine Slaybaugh4 Stars Out Of 5July 17, 2008Jeannine SlaybaughWhat a great author. He keeps you on edge of your seat. I also work in medical field and find his information interesting in his story line but also find it medically accurate. A great read!
Kathy Totherow5 Stars Out Of 5February 4, 2008Kathy TotherowI enjoyed the whole set 1-3. I was intrigued with book one to know if Claire would have the disease and how as a Christian she would handle it.
Bonnie Hazard5 Stars Out Of 5September 1, 2007Bonnie HazardThis is the third book from his series, and after having read the first two, I was compelled to read it to see if it measured up to the others. It did and surpassed my expectations. I made predictions throughout the book and there were constant surprises. It was hard to put the book down as it was suspense filled. It was entertaining, medically educating, and full of mysteries and surprises. The characters were all very realistic and vivid. It was just very engaging and realistic with hopes of a happy ending though that wasn't ever guaranteed throughout the book. There were many challenges, twists, and plots throughout. Expertly written, as were his other two former books. The author truly has the gift to write and I'm hopeful he will write more books in the near future.
