A prequel to Eddie's Boy
What happens when a young idealistic physician travels to New Orleans, hoping to chart a course for his future? Landon Ratliff knew it wouldn’t be easy, but his encounters with a homeless alcoholic, a Tarot card reader, a zydeco band, and Charity Hospital force him to confront his past and his future and to be reborn, baptized in the holy water of the French Quarter.
"In many ways, Holy Water is a coming of age book, not just for those in the medical professions, but for anyone searching to identify how their talents and passions can best be used in life. Holy Water will not only warm your heart, but shed light on what it means to find your calling in life. I really, really enjoyed this book."
—Lee Woodruff, New York Times Bestselling Author of In An Instant and Those We Love Most
