Yes!! Wow, that was quick. I have just been volunteered to coordinate a book club-members are nearly all oncology nurses-or working in oncology-and they want books that are 'easy' reads...page turners, I guess you'd say. But I cannot read badly written fluff-so I'm on a mission and think this will fit the bill-fot one,anyway! Thanks, raidergirl!

Your welcome! If it's a book you've read, you recognize the description, and it's easy. Have fun with your book club.
