    Thrilling read!

    This is my first reading experience by author Kathy Herman and I have already ordered five more of her books! Vital Signs is a riveting story based on a very real threat. Ms. Herman skillfully shows the importance of applying our Christian faith in today's world.

    terrific saga

    Blake and Melissa have spent two years doing missionary work in a remote area of the Amazon Basin. However, now that Melissa is pregnant they return to their hometown of Baxter. Shortly after they return home, they come down with an unknown virus that causes a high fever and hemorrhaging. They are immediately shipped to the hospital and are quarantined. <P>While Blake and Melissa are fighting for their lives, Jennifer gives birth to two beautiful twin boys that their father Dennis rejects. Yet when he hears that Jennifer is quarantined and the twins taken care of by strangers, he returns to Baxter and using an alias manages to become their caretaker. When a shooter tries to hold Dennis and the twins as hostages, he foils the attempt and becomes a hero. As the medical crises lessens, the turmoil in Dennis¿ heart increases, forcing him to seek out help to discover what he really wants to do for Jennifer and his sons. <P>VITAL SIGNS is the story about a town in crisis and the people who in times of stress become heroes. The metamorphosis in Dennis is believable and beautiful to watch. Especially inspiring are doctors, nurses, and other support people risking their lives battling with a disease that might kill them. Kathy Herman brilliantly describes what makes people tick so that readers attain a terrific saga. <P>Harriet Klausner
