Item description for La doctora Cole (Narrativa Historica / Historic Narratives) by Noah Gordon & Jordi Mustieles...
Overview A gifted young physician, R.J. Cole abandons a career with a prestigious hospital to practice in a small Berkshire town, becoming involved in the lives of her patients as she struggles with her ability to sense impending death.
La doctora Cole es una mujer de nuestro tiempo que, con cuarenta años y tras haber sufrido un divorcio reciente, ejerce su profesión con absoluta dedicación. Fiel a la tradición familiar, que ha hecho de la medicina un sacerdocio, la doctora R. J. Cole decide dejar Boston para volver al campo y trabajar como médico rural. Ahí, en las colinas de Massachussetts, recobrará ese don de adivinación tan peculiar que ya distinguió a sus antepasados y volverá a descubrir aquellos placeres que la gran ciudad le había arrebatado. Tras El médico y Chamán, Noah Gordon finaliza, con La doctora Cole, la historia de una familia cuyos avatares nos ha ido acompañando a lo largo de los siglos, desde la magia de la Edad Media hasta la cruda realidad de nuestros tiempos.
With Choices, Noah Gordon brings to a close his great trilogy spanning the generations of the Cole medical dynasty. Beginning with the legendary 11th–century doctor Robert J. Cole, each eldest son has borne the same name and middle initial, and some have possessed the uncanny “sixth sense”known as The Gift: the terrible and instinctive knowledge that someone is about to die. In Choices, it emerges again in the present, but this time in a daughter, Roberta Jeanne d'Arc Cole, known as R.J. The first time R.J. defies her beloved father is when she is born a female; the second, when she chooses to study law rather than medicine. Yet destiny is to overtake her when R.J. realizes that she has inherited The Gift. As she holds the hands of a sick man, R.J. feels a dreadful certainty that he is going to die; tragically, he is her own lover. Struggling with her grief, R.J. knows she must bow to the inevitable and become a physician. But her life changes when she moves to a small–town practice and is faced with a terrible dilemma — and an important choice to make.

Reviews - What do customers think about La doctora Cole (Narrativa Historica / Historic Narratives)?
Terceras partes no fueron buenas Oct 16, 2007
Un injusto final para la trilogía. Aunque la narrativa es interesante, creo que el autor se fijó más en cuanto le iban a pagar por completar la trilogía que en el contenido de la obra. Aburrida algunas veces, latosa en otras. Lo único rescatable de la obra... el fin de la misma. Dista mucho de las dos anteriores obras.
