What a wonderful, emotional story of medical drama! Chaplain Riley Hale is a great protagonist as she strives for a life of freedom from her parents wealthy but fearful lifestyle. Dr. Jack Travis cares for the down trodden but lives life on the edge. Secondary protagonist Bandy Biggs is retired rodeo star who lived life too fully until he was broken and was rescued by Jack and turned to God. Trauma Plan has plenty of action! There is never a dull moment in ER or at Jack's clinic. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys medical fiction. I won my copy of Trauma Plan in a giveaway by author Candace Calvert. This is my honest opinion.
I am a retired nurse so could relate to the characters in this story. Riley is a nurse who is working as trauma chaplain due to an injury that hinders full use of her arm. She begins doing volunteer work at a clinic and clashes with the doctor who runs the clinic, which the neighborhood it is in wants to close. Intriguing story of mystery, love and how faith gets us through life in general. Highly recommend this book.
I so enjoyed this book and cant wait to read the next in the Grace Medical Series by Candace Calvert. It's jam-packed with everything a reader could hope for - suspense, drama, romance and lives changed by a loving God. So many story lines expertly intertwined until they finally come together in the end - and suddenly it's all aver and you so wish there was more - and since this is only Book 1 in the series, there is more. It was great to read more of Riley Hale - a side character from the Mercy Hospital Series and watch her come to fully realize and trust God's plan for her life. I also loved meeting Jack Travis - a troubled hero, and watch him soften as God worked His plan out in his life.
All in all, a fantastic read which I recommend to all.
I have read the earlier books of this author and thought they were good but this one exceeded them. I enjoyed the ER action and the life problems of the characters were meshed together in a way that everything was easy to follow. Medical mysteries and stories are on of my favorite types of books
