The Big Free 

  Request this author
The Big Free is Charity Hospital and Elizabeth is one of the first women in the toughest surgery department in America, in 1982. Half the doctors who start the program never finish. Nothing in Elizabeth's proper Charleston upbringing prepares her for the violence,debauchery,and dark humor of the inner city trauma service. The Big Free is filled with unforgettable characters displaying all the quirks and spirit of New Orleans. Will the young doctor make it? Will the bossy Creole head nurse,the patients' belief in voo-doo and not modern medicine, and her chauvinistic co-workers frighten Elizabeth away? Or,will she learn to laugh at the dark humor, grow to love New Orleans, and stay at The Big Free? The Big Free is a fast paced coming of age story that will leave you wanting more.
