Karma Suture by Rosamund Kendal

Sue Carey is a driven, twenty-something doctor struggling to preserve her sanity, sobriety and humanity in the corridors of one of Cape Town's biggest public hospitals. Finding imaginative ways of saving patients is her life's work. Finding a man who wants more than a one-night stand would be nice as well. Sue's journey of self-discovery is both harrowing and hilarious. The Karma Suture visits the bedsides of the patients who make her weep and the men who make her weak. She discovers that all she ever wanted is waiting for her ... if only she can learn to see beyond the hard science into the mysteries of the heart.

I enjoyed this book. I've been curious to read it for ages, ever since I read about it on Just Up The Dose (do you know how hard it is to find a blog you used to read about 2 years ago .... ). I really enjoyed that blog and it seems she may be blogging again, I will have to update my Reader :) It's also pretty cool reading a story set in Cape Town :) Respect to all my doctor-friends. I couldn't do it.
