As Anne checks in on her favorite patients we are introduced to such rural legends as the boy called Jimmy-Elelphant-Ears, and the Essex Farmer's Boxing Club! The story delves deeper into Essex County's mythology and finally reveals how all three volumes stitch together, quilting a portrait of how loss and regret push and pull at the fabric of family in small town life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The "County" Nurse This is a poignant, heavy, moody (perhaps depressing) end to the trilogy. The country nurse could be called the "county" nurse and she ties the whole story together by finally showing us the relationship between everyone we've met. Added to this is Annie's story herself. I enjoyed this trilogy and this book in particular even though it lays heavy upon me, it brings a positive message. The loneliness, the heartache, the sadness along with family splits and division all have the birth of children at their heart and in the end those children are also the key to happiness, second chances and the future living on. No matter what the circumstances, children can always be a blessing.
