Book #1 in The McFadden Series
Her moodiness and indecisiveness are threatening her work performance. Just as Bryan
fears, his wife suffers a breakdown from the pressure and overwhelming anxiety.
Lauren gets the professional treatment she needs thanks to the local parish priest.
Meanwhile, she has more to deal with at work than broken bodies, difficult parents, and a
demanding surgery schedule. She's fighting new financial policy regulations that are
depriving patients of needed services. Arguments with the center's administrator reach a
blistering climax two days before Christmas, and as a result, the doctor and her husband
both turn in their resignations.
The couple doesn't just toss their careers without a backup plan. For the past several
months, they've been building a resort-style mansion in the Berkshire Hills of western
Massachusetts. Following their dream, Dr. McFadden and Bryan are going to provide a
home and unlimited rehabilitation services to seriously injured young patients that have
no place else to go.
The McFaddens soon discover that administering physical rehabilitation is a walk in the
park compared to rebuilding three troubled young lives. They knew it wasn't going to be
easy, but they never anticipated the law getting involved, and that's just for starters. Can
they really turn these boys around and repair damages that go much deeper than broken
How do Lauren and Bryan make the boys understand that giving up is not an option? How
do they convince each teen that he is wanted and worthy of being loved? When the chaos
and emotional flare-ups finally begin to settle, will the boys be able to extend acceptance
and compassion when a gay college student becomes a patient in their home?
