RuthUpstate SCAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5I encourage you to read both books!January 14, 2011RuthUpstate SCAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have meant to write the review for some time. Both ANGELS ON CALL and ANGELS IN THE ER are great reads. I realize that some might expect 'real' (?) angel stories. But the actions of compassion and love even in the horribly unlovely situations make this a grand accounting of a reality of which most of us know very little. I am so glad Dr. Lesslie wrote down these experiences without white-wash.
I just wish the author was listed. I finally got here after extra / extended search. I probably didn't get the correct category. (Obviously this is not fiction and not Contemporary.)
Michelle5 Stars Out Of 5September 20, 2010MichelleI loved this book!!! I could not put it down and that was hard as I have 3 little ones.This book is exactly how it is. I work in a hospital and am often working in the ER.
Anne Harrell5 Stars Out Of 5September 4, 2010Anne HarrellWithout telling the plot of the book, I will give the feelings that came across as I read Dr. Lesslie's book "Angels On Call". Dr. Lesslie has a way of playing on the reader's emotions sending them from happy to sad, wondering what is going to happen next or how the story is going to end. He places the reader right there with him as if the reader is seeing what is happening a long the way.(very descriptive) Dr. Lesslie brings the pages alive where the reader can feel his emotions.
