Quoting ‘When Breath Becomes Air’

Hey Bookworms, I’m back with this week’s Friday56. It’s a weekly meme hosted by Freda over at her blog. This week I picked up a Doctor to quote, Yes you guessed right, I’m reading When Breath Becomes Air and oh boy what a book, what a writing, what a magician.

“I shook my head. Melissa brought me to the room. It was dark. The mother lay in a bed, resting, quiet, monitor bands wrapped around her belly tracking her contractions and the twins’ heart rate and sending the signals to the screen I’d seen at the nurse’s station. The father stood at the bedside holding his wife’s hand, worry etched on his brow. Melissa whispered something to them in Spanish, then escorted me out.
