Tired of the pace and noise of life near London and longing for a better place to raise their young children, Mary J. MacLeod and her husband encountered their dream while vacationing on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. Enthralled by its windswept beauty, they soon were the proud owners of a near-derelict croft house鈥攁 farmer鈥檚 stone cottage鈥攐n 鈥渁 small acre鈥?of land. Mary assumed duties as the island鈥檚 district nurse.<i> Call the Nurse</i> is her account of the enchanted years she and her family spent there, coming to know its folk as both patients and friends.<br /><br /> In anecdotes that are by turns funny, sad, moving, and tragic, she recalls them all, the crofters and their laird, the boatmen and tradesmen, young lovers and forbidding churchmen. Against the old-fashioned island culture and the grandeur of mountain and sea unfold indelible stories: a young woman carried through snow for airlift to the hospital; a rescue by boat; the marriage of a gentle giant and the island beauty; a ghostly encounter; the shocking discovery of a woman in chains; the flames of a heather fire at night; an unexploded bomb from World War II; and the joyful, tipsy celebration of a ceilidh. Gaelic fortitude meets a nurse鈥檚 compassion in these wonderful true stories from rural Scotland.

<p><b>Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink鈥檚 landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina鈥攁nd her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice.</b><br /><br />In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos.<br /><i><br /></i>After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. <br /><br /><i>Five Days at Memorial</i>, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.<br /><br />In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters鈥攁nd how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, <i>Five Days at Memorial</i> radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis.<br /><br /><b>One of The聽<i>New York Times</i>' Best Ten Books of the Year</b></p>
