Read in July, 2008

I read this fun and profound memoir over the course of a weekend in the mountains back in 2008, and it remains one of the fondest reading memories I've ever had. Carolyn Jourdan was compelled to return home to her native Tennessee from her high-powered Washington, D.C. career when her mother fell ill. Her father, the sort of rural doctor "they" don't make anymore, needed her help running his practice. Thinking she'd only be there a few weeks, Jourdan soon began to discover the deep integrity there is in a good day's work in the service of just plain folk. "Heart in the Right Place" is funny, moving, and profound without being treacly.
