Summary: In this book, a nurse practitioner who is also a successful poet uses her unique combination of skills to write about the world of women's heath in an entirely new way. Drawing on the dramatic stories of the women she cares for and the insights she has gained in twenty-five years of professional experience, Cortney Davis weaves a tale in which women will find echoes of their own emotional journeys and their own struggles with the capricious female body. Over the cour

Eleanor, swept along the course of a perplexing illness, becomes the author's friend as Davis is suddenly confronted with health problems of her own. Joanna, a young woman haunted by memories that are interfering - physically - with her current relationship, presents another puzzle to be solved. And Davis's least-favorite patient - fast-talking, drug-addicted Renee - grows to become the patient Davis most admires.
