Overview

Sometimes, the only way to avoid death is to walk a difficult road and to re-discover life. Solomon Stern is a successful surgeon, who must now choose between life and death on his own behalf, rather than his patients. He does not accept this challenge easily, but his degenerative heart disease forces him to face the option of a heart transplant - or die.

The decisions surrounding the transplant, surgery, recovery, and lifestyle, invite him to examine every aspect of how he loves and how he lives.

Patrick J. McDonald joins Solomon on the road as his moreh derech (rabbi, advisor, and spiritual friend). They travel the road together and explore questions of life, love, and friendship, from both the Jewish and Christian traditions.

Their conversations enrich not only the two of them, but invite the reader to be equally enriched. The book offers a detailed description of the heart transplant experience, but Sol's story is really every person�s story, as the unexpected in life forces us to re-examine how we live. The book invites the reader to come along for the journey and enjoy the trip.
