BOOK REVIEW: WARNING SIGNS
BY C.J. LYONS
We hope you enjoy this book review by
Are the strange symptoms that Amanda Mason is undergoing a real illness or just the result of too much work and not enough rest? Amanda is trying to convince herself that the symptoms are the result of overwork and an overactive imagination. The medical center has just admitted a girl who although awake is unable to respond verbally. Her symptoms are much the same as a couple of other girls previously admitted who passed away. Although Dr. Lucas Stone, the treating physician on these cases has searched for answers Dr. Stone could not find the cause of the problem.
While Amanda is trying to keep up with her work and ignore her symptoms her roommate Gina Freeman is fighting her own demons. Gina had a bad experience while riding with an ambulance team and is now is struggling with trying to force herself back on the streets or give up medicine altogether.
When a great-grandmother comes into the ER with her grandson, it becomes obvious to Dr. Lydia Fiore that the couple is homeless. Reminded of her own childhood when her mother was forced to live on the streets with Lydia by her side, Lydia promises the woman to watch out for her grandson which is strictly against the hospital rules.
Then we have Nora who is trying her best to do her job while recovering from a bad relationship. Nora objects to Lydia’s agreeing to watch out for the little boy.
In spite of their differences the group works together to try and help figure out what the three women who have come into the emergency room showing the same symptoms might have in common in the hopes of helping Dr. Stone come up with a plan of treatment in time to save the girl lying in the hospital in a coma. Even though still in denial, Amanda is experiencing more and more of the symptoms and trying to keep them secret from her friends and coworkers.
Warning Signs offers a very exciting peek into the lives of the Doctors, nurses and medical students at Pittsburgh’s Angels of Mercy Medical Center. I enjoyed the book and if you want an inside peak at the world inside a hospital this is the book for you. I haven’t read Lifelines but I do intend to read this previous book by C. J. Lyons
