really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, memoirs
Read in February, 2011

This was a truly heartwarming and touching memoir about a high-powered DC lawyer being called home to East Tennessee to help man her dad's family doctor office after her mom suffers a heart attack. I loved how Jourdan weaved the tales of the different patients into this book. She's does an incredible job of painting the picture of what it is like to struggle in a rural community in the back hills of Tennessee. The overall tone of this book made it seem like it was fiction, but you wouldn't be able to make up half of this stuff if you tried.

The overall message of the book was a great reminder to slow down and appreciate everything you have.

A definite recommendation.
