Heart and Soul
By: Maeve Binchy
Like most of Maeve Binchy’s stories, this takes place in Ireland. Many characters make up this tale. Each one has their own very different set of interests and problems.
Dr. Clara Casey is trying to start a heart clinic in an old warehouse that belongs to the hospital. The hospital wants to turn the space into a parking lot or sell it. The hospital administrator is dead set against the heart clinic and everything Dr. Casey wants to do. Exercise equipment and an instructor is badly in need; the money to cover expenses is hard to come by.
In her private life, Clara has 2 wayward daughters and an ex-husband to deal with. Patients at the unit all have lives that are complicated and fraught with problems that affect their health. But like all good stories, all is well that ends well. Try it, you’ll like it.
