Description
A tragedy on a cold Adirondack day robbed country doctor Enoch Farrell of his three oldest children. Then all his hopes rested with his son, Martin, who dreamed of becoming a doctor too. Intelligent, gifted Martin could have a brilliant future. All that stood in his way was his family's poverty--until he met wealthy, beautiful Mary Fern Meig and her sister, Jessie, and everything changed forever. Moving from a teeming New York hospital to the elite operating theaters of London, Martin Farrell is about to learn the price of success--a secret bargain with the Meigs that could resonate into the next generation . . . and test the strength of a man and a woman's passion across the coming years . . . Praise for Random Winds "Wonderful . . . A convincing, sweeping novel . . . A real page-turner." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer "Impossible to put down." -- South Bend Tribune "Engrossing." -- Publishers Weekly "Richly woven. . . . A twisting and complex story that touches the lives of everyone." --UPI
