»Hattest du als Kind auch diesen Moment, in dem dir plötzlich klar wurde, dass deine Familie verrückt ist?« Es war einmal ein Haus mit einem Garten, in dem wohnten ein Apfelbaum, ein Bach und ein kleine Katze mit mondgelben Augen. Hier wachsen drei Kinder auf: Rosemary, ihre ungestüme Schwester Fern und ihr großer Bruder Lowell. Sie könnten eine ganz normale Familie sein. Wäre ihr Vater nicht Wissenschaftler, und wäre Fern nicht ein ganz besonderes kleines Mädchen, das Wachsmalstifte verspeist, den perfekten Rückwärtssalto beherrscht und lacht wie eine Säge. Jahre nach Ferns Verschwinden erzählt Rosemary nun deren Geschichte. Denn erzählen war das Einzige, was Fern nie konnte. »Die wundersame Reise ins Herz einer Familie. Am Ende bricht das Buch dem Leser nicht einfach das Herz – es nimmt sein Herz und gibt es nicht mehr zurück.« Dan Chaon »Mein Lieblingsbuch des Jahres.« Elizabeth George

Chuck Shaw is a vanishing breed--an old-style veterinarian with a quarter of a century of experience who runs a "mixed practice" in rural New Hampshire, treating everything from house cats to milk cows. Week after demanding week, he and his associate, horse expert Roger Osinchuk, make house calls and farm calls, and spend sleepless nights on call, to see to the well-being of patients whose only common denominator is an inability to speak. But the practice is booming, and Chuck decides to take on a third associate, Erika Bruner, fresh out of veterinary school. Whynott follows these three practitioners into the world of contemporary veterinary medicine, as a witness to memorable encounters and daily dilemmas. He watches as they play gynecologist to cows and horses, obstetrician to calves and colts, podiatrist to creatures whose feet are life and death to them. He captures the struggle to learn a difficult craft on the job, describes the confluence of skill and intuition that is the essence of diagnosis, and depicts the ongoing effort to balance the needs and desires of animals and owners without compromising his creed. A Country Practice is a vivid portrait of the rapidly changing face of an ancient profession.
