Mailbox Monday -- January 10th
The reason why I love Mondays -- Mailbox Monday hosted this month by Rose City Reader. I've been slowing down on books to try and catch up, so only one book this week.
1) Something to Prove by Yvonne S. Thornton, M.D. Publisher's Summary. From the Operating Room to the family dinner table, "Something to Prove" chronicles Dr. Thornton’s journey to achieve the goals her father laid out for her in childhood—and to set the bar high for her own children. In "Something to Prove", Dr. Thornton brings us along her continued path as a doctor, wife and mother, revealing the challenges of balancing a flourishing medical career with managing a home and raising children. Carrying on the family name, Dr. Thornton picks up the mantle of her father’s ambition and heart as she shares the ups and downs of her career as the first African-American woman in the United States to be Board-certified in maternal-fetal medicine—while attending her kids’ chess matches, crafting Halloween costumes, and somehow finding time to learn how to tango. Filled with vivid personalities, heartbreaking setbacks, and joyful triumphs, "Something to Prove" is a testament to what can be accomplished through hard work, love, and determination.
Thanks to the Publicist!
