Publisher's Summary

“Three female doctors and friends remind the reader of the heart-wrenching tragedies and impossible choices that make such a cast not only heroic but human.” (Kristina McMorris, New York Times best-selling author of Sold on a Monday)

Hannah, Compton, and Kira have been close friends since medical school, reuniting once a year for a much-needed vacation. Just as they gather to travel in Spain, an outbreak of a fast-spreading virus throws the world into chaos.

When Compton Winfield returns to her job as an ER doctor in New York City, she finds a city changed beyond recognition - and a personal loss so gutting, it reshapes every aspect of her life.

Hannah Geier’s career as an ob-gyn in San Diego is fulfilling, but she’s always longed for a child of her own. After years of trying, Hannah discovers she's expecting a baby, just as the disease engulfs her city.

Kira Marchand, an infectious disease doctor at the CDC in Atlanta, finds herself at the center of the American response to the terrifying new illness. Her professional battle turns personal when she must decide whether her children will receive an experimental but potentially life-saving treatment.

Written prior to COVID-19 by a former emergency medicine physician, Doctors and Friends incorporates unexpected wit, razor-edged poignancy, and a deeply relatable cast of characters who provoke both laughter and tears. Martin provides a unique insider’s perspective into the world of medical professionals working to save lives during the most difficult situations of their careers.

Critic Reviews

Doctors and Friends is an astounding achievement. It's both an eerily timely portrait of a world in the grips of a deadly pandemic and a poignant dive into the interior lives of the medical workers at its forefront. I was profoundly affected by these characters. I became emotionally attached to them and deeply invested in the outcome of their stories. I know they will stay with me for a long time.” (New York Times best-selling author Cristina Alger)

“The beating heart of this fast-paced and intensely moving novel is the warm, life-sustaining friendship between a group of doctors on the frontlines of a global pandemic. Martin shines a sharp, compassionate light on the lives of the women behind the masks and scrubs during a crisis that is both achingly familiar and punctuated by twists and turns you won’t see coming. I couldn’t put it down!” (USA Today best-selling author Meg Donohue)

"Doctors and Friends is a stunning medical drama that will resonate with readers everywhere. I was riveted. Kimmery Martin's sharp, smart writing is infused with compassion, emotion and a belief in the healing power of friendship, love, and hope." (New York Times best-selling author Jayne Ann Krentz)

Fascinating read

I loved Kimmery Martin’s latest book. I can’t believe she wrote about a pandemic before we actually had one! Her characters are smart and witty. The group of friends reminds me of my college friends. I definitely recommend this book!

She does it again! Wow!

What an incredible portrayal of the true heroes in medicine who also play the part of hero Mom, wife, and friend. Kimmery again delivers an incredible literary work of developing characters and building the plot. The use of 3 narrators adds to the suspense and connects the reader to the women. Although a tough topic due to Covid-19- this is a great book. Add it to your list!

Wow!!

I have enjoyed several books by this author but this one was ….WOW! If you are filled with anxiety about Covid, you may want to avoid listening as this really hits close to todays world. The author wrote in many things that after writing come close to what’s going on now and it really makes you wonder. Plenty of feelings, both good and bad and the readers did a wonderful job in portraying the characters. I look forward to Kelly Rimmers next book!
