Good in a Crisis is Overton's laugh-out-loud story about the impossibility of a quick recovery after the end of a long marriage. It chronicles her harrowing search for Mr. Right; a brain aneurysm; the deaths of close friends; and the realities of midlife-including some particularly awkward moments that take place as she tries to find her footing in the new middle age. It's an inspirational tale about loss of life, loss of love, loss of innocence; about spirituality, self-delusion, and even sheer stupidity. It's written from a physician's perspective, but it's not about medicine, per se; it's about coming of age in adulthood, and making an effort to help others through the awful events that can cluster in midlife. An unforgettable memoir, Good in a Crisis will make you laugh and cry, and leave you, as Overton was, a lot more humble and just a little wiser.
