This is the second book I have read by this author, the first being "The Metaphysical Touch" many years ago, which I loved. This newer one is also beautifully written--almost a stream of consciousness--much of the book reveals the thoughts and feelings in intricate detail of Mira Braverman, who is a Serbian woman, a therapist, livng in London in the late 90's, while her country is being attacked, both literally and by the press and public outcry around the world. At the same time Mira is attempting to cope with the grave illlness of her husband, the dangers to her homeland and family there, she also is committed to her relationships with her patients, who sit with her in the "Delivery Room". I found her a brave woman, who wants very much to stay true to her helping role with her clients, at the same time she is grieving so herself.
