Heart in the Right Place
by Carolyn Jourdan
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Carolyn Jourdan, an attorney on Capitol Hill, thought she had it made. But when her mother has a heart attack, she returns home—to the Tennessee mountains, where her father is a country doctor and her mother works as his receptionist. Jourdan offers to fill in for her mother until she gets better. With great humor and great tenderness, Heart in the Right Place shows that some of our biggest heroes are the ones living right beside us.
