A Quest for Meaning & Purpose
An inauspicious encounter in a doctor's surgery during a routine follow-up for IVF initiates a descent into a labyrinth of questioning and uncertainty. From those first words ushered out of the doctor’s mouth starts a year where the mind is consumed by medical research, medical terms, hospital visits, medication and explanations. Filled with reflections on life, motherhood, friendship, and the future, A Year of Medical Thinking chronicles one woman's ordinary life as it is catapulted into a quest for meaning and purpose.
Structuring the narrative around each of the four seasons, S.K. Reid shares her personal experience in a way that speaks to all. Her book explores the shift in thinking that occurs after the diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening disease; the loss of control, security and hope prompt philosophical and spiritual reflections on mortality, resilience and life.
Guaranteed to strike a chord with those who have experienced the loss of a baby or any potentially life-threatening illness, readers are reminded of the importance of sharing stories, talking about grief and never losing hope in the face of adversity.
