In this new collection of stories, MacDonald takes readers on another round of house calls, office visits, and emergency summons. His remote practice saw patients of every age and type, from a local child with a penchant for putting things up his nose to a dedicated church pianist with untreatable cancer, from a teenager with unexplained seizures to a vacationing Mafioso recovering from a heart attack. MacDonald offers tales of patients, colleagues, and neighbours, probing their very human responses to medical dilemmas and sharing humorous and touching episodes in equal portions. A charming collection of vignettes -- some hopeful, some heartbreaking -- that offer a unique look at a bygone era of twentieth-century rural America.
