Overview

In Mexico, Hurricane Bertha flattened tobacco crops and coffee bean fields and demolished entire villages. Then suddenly she turned northward—a surprising act that had not been foreseen by meteorologists. After twelve hours, the winds that had reached 180 miles per hour would slow, and the storm would die. But before that, Bertha would terrorize the unsuspecting residents of a South Texas hospital and the bank robbers holding them hostage.

The paperback was published by Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson. http://bookstore.westbowpress.com/Products/SKU-000692629/Emergency-Care.aspx

Description

In the midst of a hurricane, bank robbers invade the South Texas hospital where Sidney Shelton works. Both staff and patients are terrorized for hours. It is a toss up if Sidney is more afraid of the thugs or the hurricane. When their captors leave in the morning, will the hostages be dead or alive? What can Sidney do to protect her six-year-old son and friends from harm? God sends her unexpected help from a Mexican cop and a soldier with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

This Christian thriller is recommended for book clubs that enjoy a good suspense and individuals who seek theological reflection. Discussion questions are at the end of the novel.
