But Mayzie expects to be bored. She is surprised to develop friendships with Bobby Cutler, an angry paraplegic who is smoking himself to death, and with Sean Cavanagh, a charming Irish medical student. She argues with Ted McFadden, a redneck paramedic who applauds the Vietnam War, and she locks horns with Abe Zimmerman, the patriarch of a vacationing orthodox Jewish family.
At Liberty Loomis Hospital, Mayzie Jenkins comes face to face with a clash of cultures, crippling illnesses, domestic violence, and death. It is here that she realizes the true value of friendship, loyalty, and love. And it is here that her dark suppressed memory comes to light. Its haunting damage reaches far beyond Mayzie Jenkins and her family.
