Love Is the Strongest Medicine Book Review:

"This book puts music, laughter, and heart front and center, and the results are magical." - Mark Hyman, M.D. In Dr. Steven Eisenberg's oncology practice, the enemy is cancer, but it's also denial, anger, and fear--draining emotions that can interfere with the effectiveness of treatment. Every day, Dr. Steven helps patients fight cancer using both time-tested conventional therapies and innovative medical technologies. At the same time, he helps them overcome negative emotions by cultivating acceptance, love, and self-compassion in a deeply personal way, through laughter, empathy, and the music he plays and sings for and with them. How often do you hear someone say, "I'm alive"? Dr. Steven's patients say it to him all the time, in conversations, texts, and e-mails. Some of these patients are celebrating remissions or cures. Some are getting sicker, with reservations about what tomorrow might bring. But they've had a good day. They are all--we are all--truly and urgently alive. Dr. Steven's book invites us to celebrate this truth, even as it tells a compelling story of a doctor's experience on the front lines of care; offers a road map for bringing humanity back into traditional medical practice; and gives patients, families, and caregivers a blueprint for living each day with hope.

LaRose Book Review:

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction Finalist for the 2017 PEN Faulkner Award In this literary masterwork, Louise Erdrich, the bestselling author of the National Book Award-winning The Round House and the Pulitzer Prize nominee The Plague of Doves wields her breathtaking narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture. North Dakota, late summer, 1999. Landreaux Iron stalks a deer along the edge of the property bordering his own. He shoots with easy confidence—but when the buck springs away, Landreaux realizes he’s hit something else, a blur he saw as he squeezed the trigger. When he staggers closer, he realizes he has killed his neighbor’s five-year-old son, Dusty Ravich. The youngest child of his friend and neighbor, Peter Ravich, Dusty was best friends with Landreaux’s five-year-old son, LaRose. The two families have always been close, sharing food, clothing, and rides into town; their children played together despite going to different schools; and Landreaux’s wife, Emmaline, is half sister to Dusty’s mother, Nola. Horrified at what he’s done, the recovered alcoholic turns to an Ojibwe tribe tradition—the sweat lodge—for guidance, and finds a way forward. Following an ancient means of retribution, he and Emmaline will give LaRose to the grieving Peter and Nola. “Our son will be your son now,” they tell them. LaRose is quickly absorbed into his new family. Plagued by thoughts of suicide, Nola dotes on him, keeping her darkness at bay. His fierce, rebellious new “sister,” Maggie, welcomes him as a coconspirator who can ease her volatile mother’s terrifying moods. Gradually he’s allowed shared visits with his birth family, whose sorrow mirrors the Raviches’ own. As the years pass, LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the Irons and the Raviches, and eventually their mutual pain begins to heal. But when a vengeful man with a long-standing grudge against Landreaux begins raising trouble, hurling accusations of a cover-up the day Dusty died, he threatens the tenuous peace that has kept these two fragile families whole. Inspiring and affecting, LaRose is a powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart, and an unforgettable, dazzling tour de force from one of America’s most distinguished literary masters.

We Are All Perfectly Fine Book Review:

When we need help, we count on doctors to put us back together. But what happens when doctors fall apart? Funny, fresh, and deeply affecting, We Are All Perfectly Fine is the story of a married mother of three on the brink of personal and professional collapse who attends rehab with a twist: a meditation retreat for burned-out doctors. Jillian Horton, a general internist, has no idea what to expect during her five-day retreat at Chapin Mill, a Zen centre in upstate New York. She just knows she desperately needs a break. At first she is deeply uncomfortable with the spartan accommodations, silent meals and scheduled bonding sessions. But as the group struggles through awkward first encounters and guided meditations, something remarkable happens: world-class surgeons, psychiatrists, pediatricians and general practitioners open up and share stories about their secret guilt and grief, as well as their deep-seated fear of falling short of the expectations that define them. Jillian realizes that her struggle with burnout is not so much personal as it is the result of a larger system failure, and that compartmentalizing your most difficult emotions—a coping strategy that is drilled into doctors—is not useful unless you face these emotions too. Jillian Horton throws open a window onto the flawed system that shapes medical professionals, revealing the rarely acknowledged stresses that lead doctors to depression and suicide, and emphasizing the crucial role of compassion not only in treating others, but also in taking care of ourselves.

Love and Spirit Medicine Book Review:

Love and Spirit Medicine chronicles the author’s mystical journey through the end of her marriage and into a focused, shamanic exploration of entheogenic mushrooms. A love relationship unfolded during that time, sending her into a dark night of the soul. Shonagh continued her shamanic explorations with the plant medicine, and discovered a well of resources. Using the mushrooms as a portal to the spirit worlds, Shonagh experienced a profound transformation of consciousness. She realized that the ceremonial use of sacred mushrooms offered a powerful path in her spiritual exploration. Each journey brought her into direct connection with the realms of the sacred. Through these journeys, she cultivated relationships with otherworldly beings that nourished her on a soul level. Through her desire to know Spirit and experience deep connection, she ultimately discovered her own divinity and her connection to the All. “Ultimately, this is the story of my journey into Self. It became necessary for me to fall in love with the mystery of my own being. My experiences with the mushroom medicine have cultivated an intimate relationship with Mother Earth and a coterie of spirit beings. Through the use of sacred mushrooms, I have experienced an expansion of consciousness I never thought possible. It has deepened my sense of belonging within a vast universe of countless realms. This medicine is a potent portal into the world of the spirits,” she writes in the introduction. Shonagh forms a unique relationship with the spirit world that has been made possible through her mushroom journeys. Like many traditional shamans through the ages, she finds herself to be a conduit for Spirit, thereby bringing through wisdom and guidance for herself and her community. She is eventually led into a very ancient practice as a “medicine oracle,” and her life is forever changed. Love and Spirit Medicine is an unusual love story; a tale that exemplifies what is possible through the reverent use of plant medicine for healing and transcendence on every level of our being. It’s the story of a woman who ultimately discovers her journey is not about finding a soul mate, but coming to know and love her own soul.

Love and Medicine Book Review:

ROSS I was never supposed to see Tom again after the one passionate night we spent together. That's the way I prefer it. I was definitely never supposed to operate on him when he was brought into my ER after his accident. That part's against the law. It was an honest mistake - I didn't realize until later that the man I'd just put back together was the same man who'd just spent the previous night taking me apart, innuendo most definitely intended. And when I paid his medical bills, that was just a guilty conscience. He wouldn't have been on the road as tired as he was if me and my issues hadn't been against him staying the night. But when I keep making up excuses to see him, and those turn into justifications for why I'm mashing my lips up against his and taking off his clothes again and throwing him down on my desk, well... Okay, I admit it. That might technically be my bad. After my last disastrous relationship, commitment's been a no go for me. I don't know how to turn my back on the first guy in forever to actually make me feel something. Make me willing to risk everything. Except it's not just a cliché here. But no matter what my head says, I can't ignore what my heart is telling me. TOM I'm getting sick of people telling me to stay away from Ross. At first it was just a joke. He had a reputation for being a bad boy, and people don't call me tight-ass as a compliment to my glutes. I never thought we'd actually hit it off. The only thing we had in common that night were too many drinks and loneliness. But we did connect, on a deeper level than I can't even explain to myself - let alone to everyone who seems to have an opinion now on why I can't be with the doctor who saved my life. Even if he's also the only one who can heal my soul. Normally I'm the guy that's all about listening to what others think, but this time is different. This time I've got to listen to my heart. This 50,000 word standalone features medical misadventures and sexual healing. Our heroes won't let the law stand in the way of true love, but you should if you're under eighteen please!

Tracks Book Review:

Set in North Dakota at a time in this century when Indian tribes were struggling to keep what little remained of their lands, Tracks is a tale of passion and deep unrest. Over the course of ten crucial years, as tribal land and trust between people erode ceaselessly, men and women are pushed to the brink of their endurance--yet their pride and humor prohibit surrender. The reader will experience shock and pleasure in encountering a group of characters that are compelling and rich in their vigor, clarity, and indomitable vitality.
