WHEN THE DOCTOR BECOMES A PATIENT–
A BABY IS MISSING!
HOW CAN A NEWBORN DISAPPEAR FROM A GUARDED MATERNITY WARD?
Dr. Joanne Duncan delivers a baby girl in the E.R. of Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Vancouver, B.C. Within hours, the baby is abducted, and Joanne and security guard Spencer Mathews unite in a desperate attempt to find her.
˃˃˃ Joanne is a highly respected emergency room physician, and Spence was a dedicated member of the RCMP.
But when a car crash took his ex-wife’s life and crippled his daughter, a devastated Spence left the force, feeling it was all his fault. All he can handle now is working security at St. Joe’s.
˃˃˃ FULL RECOVERY–it’s what Joanne and Spence are after.
Recovery of their hearts, of the freedom to live their lives in the present without ghosts from the past, and most of all, recovery of the baby girl who’s become a symbol of all the losses in their lives.
I was living in Kelowna, and one morning a newborn went missing from the hospital. It was before the safeguards that are now in place in hospital nurseries. A troubled woman had smuggled the baby out in an exercise bag. The baby was recovered, alive and well, but I couldn’t stop imagining how it had happened and why. Writers and their who, what, when, where and why. I couldn’t resist dreaming up a story that encompassed all the players in such a drama. And that was how FULL RECOVERY began.
