Hurricane Ivan roars into the Gulf of Mexico as Karen Puno and her dog scramble to evacuate a barrier island while a teacher with liver disease is placed on an organ transplant list. But fate is not always kind. It’s not the hurricane which causes Karen’s coma and subsequent organ donation. Nor is it responsible for her battered dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty wind.
Subsequently, her homeless dog and diverse lives from Indiana to Peru come together, impacting each other in permanent, intense, and heartfelt ways. Is fate kind after all?
Doctor Barbara is a physician-turned-author who sprinkles credible medicine into the background of her plots. Her operating room scenes shine but her plots and character take center stage.
The author lives in middle Tennessee in a wildlife corridor. "Perfect for writing," she says. She also works her own therapy dog who is the star of her children's book series title Chester the Chesapeake. These three books use real pictures, are written from the dog's point of view, and inspire good behavior in children.
Doctor Ebel continues giving medical lectures and has written a health self-help book. You may visit her website to contact her and you may visit her dog's website at: http://dogbooksforchildren.weebly.com.read more
