5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring May 6 2017
By Roben - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very well done! I am a fan of Lynne Marshall's work, at her ability to dig deep into the emotions of her characters, and the light touch when it comes to the medical aspects. This is one of my favorites, as the character arcs for both Wes and Mary are not only strong but intriguing. They start the story with so much baggage, yet there is that romantic interest in both that has lasted for years. That interest pushes them both into unknown territory. Wes resists, Mary persists. Finally they meet in the middle, and their banter is refreshing and heartwarming, as their friendship deepens and they each try to achieve their goals. Mary risks everything in asking him to participate in her longheld dream of motherhood. But the risk pays off. It causes Wes to lower his need for control in everything, and allow Mary to help him achieve his goal to return to work again. Things don't go as smoothly as planned, but isn't that how life is? A cold, clinical decision, when combined with what the heart truly needs, can open both to heartbreak. Read this wonderful, inspirational story of resilience, love, and learning to trust completely, to see how these two independent, strong-willed characters achieve a happily ever after. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming and constantly affecting April 18 2017
By A. Richard - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
While all the stories Lynne Marshall writes that contain some medical references have been positive plus convincing, MIRACLE FOR THE NEUROSURGEON is her most heartwarming yet. So many factors dealing with having a spinal cord injury are explored, from physical complications to emotional issues, and each matter not only made the two main characters come across as realistic but also very likable. When I start a book by Lynne Marshall, I know the main couple will be facing several difficulties, but most of the time there are not so many added dilemmas for them to triumph over. I was totally drawn into MIRACLE FOR THE NEUROSURGEON from the first chapter, and my interest never waned until I had devoured every compelling word.

When Mary Harris unexpectedly showed up at the home of Wesley Van Allen, she intended to make him realize that he could use her help. A waterskiing mishap had severely damaged his spinal cord, and now the successful neurosurgeon will never walk again. Since Mary is a physical therapist, she has come to offer her useful knowledge in the hope it will make his days better. But Wes is a proud man and is not at all receptive to letting someone see him as weak, and he quickly refuses her proposal.

However, Mary is not about to give up, as she comprehends the man whom she has known for years needs her assistance regardless of what he says. When Wes finally relents, she is overjoyed and looks forward to making him healthier and productive. She has always respected him as a person, and even secretly likes her best friend’s brother more than either of them knows. His days actually become enjoyable having Mary work with him, and Wes cannot keep from dreaming of things that he thinks will never happen because of how his whole life has now changed.

There were numerous times when I cheered on Wes as he tried to accomplish a deed that was once easy but not anymore. The sudden loss of mobility would certainly be devastating for me, and adjusting would be hard. Ms. Marshall’s knowledge as a nurse plus her thorough research let me see what a person would have to do after such a terrible accident, and whether there are any workable solutions which would make it possible to resume various activities. Wes knows his world will never be the same, and he thinks his wishes for more normalcy will never be achieved. But when the optimistic Mary comes into his life, a spark of hope tries to flare up. MIRACLE FOR THE NEUROSURGEON is truly stirring because of inspiring moments.

Wes and Mary are one of my all-time favorite couples. They are both extremely genuine, and this made them all the more appealing. What each of them feels is very conceivable, especially when past sentiments affect the present, leaving them often mystified as to how they should react to one another. As desire builds between them, so does the determination to do their best for the other. I never felt like these two were not responding in a true-to-life manner, and this had me believing each scene as depicted. Their love story is really romantic at times, and I felt their joy at being so happy. I also could tell when they were experiencing distress, as the author’s writing gave me insight into their every thought.

I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Story May 4 2017
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
WOW this is a magical story beautifully written and takes on some issues that are very moving and heartfelt I loved it from page one the strength and courage of both the heroine and hero is awesome and MS Marshall has bought it all to life on these pages.

Dr Wes Van Allen is a neurosurgeon and is used to getting his own way he comes from a wealthy privileged family so when an accident takes his ability to walk away and leaves him in a wheelchair he pushes himself to carry on and get some strength back and working out in the gym but he has been through a few physical therapists, so when and old and close friend arrives on his doorstep to help he is not overjoyed but agrees to two months with Mary, attitudes and lives are going to change.

Mary Harris has always been smart and caring but she grew up in a trailer park with very poor parents so when she becomes friends with wealthy Alexander Van Allen this brings her in close contact with all of the Van Allen family and a crush on Wes since the age of 15. Roll on 10 years since they have seen each other and now Mary is a trained physical therapist arriving to help Wes, this sets sparks flying and with both of them wanting something very much a bargain is agreed on oh but this bargain sends hearts to aflutter and love grows.

This really is a moving beautiful story so well presented so well told that it captured me from the start and had me sighing and smiling in the end, it was fabulous seeing how Wes and Mary coped with their growing love and that need to be close, thank you MS Marshall for a story that will stay with me for a long time to come way to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strength, trust, hope, and love are the themes of this amazing book. April 19 2017
By olybev - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wes Van Allen, a successful neurosurgeon, becomes a paraplegic after being injured in a skiing accident. He is frustrated and angry. He can't practice medicine nor can he enjoy the many activities in life that brought him joy. He is working hard to strengthen his body in hopes he can get some of his old life back but refuses help. He is a doctor. He can figure out his own therapy without any help or interference from anybody.
Mary Harris has loved Wes forever. He was her inspiration to go to college and make something of herself. She was devastated to hear of his accident. She wanted to run to his side to help him but felt she had no right to interfere. As a trained physical therapist, Mary knows she can help Wes adapt to his new life. When his sister and her best friend contacts her telling heir how badly he needs help, Mary returns home. She knows he has fired every physical therapist he has worked with. She knows how stubborn he is. However, she will not allow him to run her off no matter how nasty he gets. She will help him realize new goals and help them achieve them even if it kills them both.
MIRACLE FOR THE NEUROSURGEON is a warm, amazing story of strength, trust, hope, and love. Lynne Marshall is a gifted writer who creates characters you instantly bond with and constantly cheer for. It is rare you see a book whose main character is a person with a disability. I loved this book. I loved these characters. I loved the honesty and integrity of Ms. Marshall's descriptions of the every day challenges Wes faces. This is truly a wonderful, inspirational story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! April 19 2017
By Lynn B - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
An inspirational story of overcoming what life throws at you and finding a way to be all that you can be regardless! I really enjoyed this "feel good" story ... not only did we feel the genuine fondness that they felt for each other from the very beginning of the book, but as they let their guard down and shared their inner most thoughts and feelings with each other, we watched their inner beings strengthen and a personal depth shine through. Great characters, a solid plot and a top of the line job of showing the drawbacks of life in a wheelchair, as well as a good bit about newer studies and technologies that are being developed.

Neurosurgeon Wesley Van Allen was at the top of his game when a freak accident put him into a wheelchair and stripped him of the ability to see a future worth anything at all. He is angry and bitter and trying with all of his might to not become the weakling that people see when they see him in this contraption.

Physical therapist Mary Harris has known and adored Wes for years as his sister's best friend. She is putting her foot down and taking over for a couple of months to get him whipped into shape. She won't let him ignore the part of him that doesn't work anymore, and is set on getting him stronger and better equipped with skills to achieve the brogjt future he can easily still have!

As attraction boils to the surface and awkward talks abound, will they decide to take their friendship to a new level? And when Wes finds out that Mary would give anything to have a baby ... will he volunteer to be the daddy?
