Review: Emergency: Wife Lost and Found

Emergency: Wife Lost and Found
My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Purchase: Amazon | B&N

Synopsis: Every emergency doctor dreaded recognising someone in Casualty – even cool-headed consultant James Morrell. But he was doubly shocked when the unconscious patient he was asked to treat was instantly familiar. It was his ex-wife! 

Dr Lorna McClelland hated being ill, hated being stuck in a hospital bed, but above all she hated having to rely on James. Then, as she recovered, all the wonderful things about their marriage came flooding back…
"Ten years on and he'd recognised her in a instant by her pretty feet alone."

This has been a short and light to read, but has some parts that were really emotional. I really appreciated them not jumping into each other the first time they had a chance. It built more character and a better view in their relationship.

Lorna, despite being strong and hard-headed, I see her as a dependent woman. Once to her family and then to James. Although her personality is quite understandable, I just wished she learned how to speak and decide for her self a long time ago.

James on the other hand was a very compassionate guy. I can't help but feel bad for he's been through and what he had to endure during Lorna's accident. While reading the book, it felt like I was cheering more for his happy ending, more than Lorna's.

This is a story of healing, forgiveness and second chances. One of those books I didn't expect to be this good.
