Publisher's Summary

A debut novel set against a background of hospital rounds and life-or-death decisions that pulses with humor and empathy and explores the heart's capacity for forgiveness....
Zadie Anson and Emma Colley have been best friends since their early 20s, when they first began navigating serious romantic relationships amid the intensity of medical school. Now they're happily married wives and mothers with successful careers - Zadie as a pediatric cardiologist and Emma as a trauma surgeon. Their lives in Charlotte, North Carolina are chaotic but fulfilling, until the return of a former colleague unearths a secret one of them has been harboring for years.
As chief resident, Nick Xenokostas was the center of Zadie's life - both professionally and personally - throughout a tragic chain of events in her third year of medical school that she has long since put behind her. Nick's unexpected reappearance during a time of new professional crisis shocks both women into a deeper look at the difficult choices they made at the beginning of their careers. As it becomes evident that Emma must have known more than she revealed about circumstances that nearly derailed both their lives, Zadie starts to question everything she thought she knew about her closest friend.

Fantastic book!

This book was interesting right from the start! I loved hearing about the characters days in medical school in contrast to their life as physicians. The plot kept me interested at all times as it unfolded. The narration was outstanding! I would especially recommend this book to those
looking for a great fast paced book that entails humor, intrigue, exciting medical cases and very interesting relationships amongst the characters. I could not put it down!

Masterful readers; very girly story

These are two incredible VO artists... who bring to life one character who is so lifelike you have to grin at her lovable foibles, and the other who is totally unrealistic and has villain written all over her from page 1. Nobody gets to the top of their med school class from abject poverty without at least one person who believes in them. The main reveal in the plot turns out to be hard to buy on various levels, yet also so minor and catty it’s a disappointment. The readers were the best thing about this otherwise very GIRLY story. And don’t listen to any of the surgery scenes while eating! Yuck!
