RANDOM WINDS is an epochal saga about a family of physicians -- first Enoch, the dedicated country doctor; then Martin, his son, a brilliant neurosurgeon; and Claire, his flamboyant, unconventional daughter.
The story moves from a turn-of-the-century village in upstate New York to privileged estates outside London, from the bedsides of the rural poor to the frenetic emergency room of a New York hospital, from war-torn London to hideaways on the French Riviera. It tells of the trials and triumphs of a dynamic family struggling to hold its center, and of love beyond anyone's power to deny.
