Description
"A debut novel that pulses with humor and empathy and explores the heart's capacity for forgiveness... Zadie Anson and Emma Colley have been best friends since their early twenties, when they first began navigating serious romantic relationships amid the intensity of medical school. Now they're happily married wives and mothers with successful careers--Zadie as a pediatric cardiologist and Emma as a trauma surgeon. Their lives in Charlotte, North Carolina are chaotic but fulfilling, until the return of a former colleague unearths a secret one of them has been harboring for years. As chief resident, Nick Xenokostas was the center of Zadie's life--both professionally and personally--during a tragic chain of events during her third year of medical school that she has long since put behind her. Nick's unexpected reappearance during a time of new professional crisis shocks both women into a deeper look at the difficult choices they made at the beginning of their careers. As it becomes evident that Emma must have known more than she revealed about circumstances that nearly derailed both their lives, Zadie begins to question everything she thought she knew about her closest friend"--
"Smart, funny, and impactful, The Queen of Hearts is a celebration of friendship and love set against a backdrop of hospital rounds and life-or-death decisions. Zadie Anson and Emma Colley are surgeons, happily married wives and mothers, and best friends since the grueling days of medical school. But their friendship was once tested almost to the breaking point when, as students, they both fell in love with the same man. Now, the dashing Dr. X is moving to Charlotte, North Carolina, and Zadie and Emma must brace themselves for a meeting with the man who had such a devastating impact on their personal and professional lives and who was at the epicenter of two tragedies that almost derailed their careers. As buried secrets are unearthed, these two women will test the limits of friendship once more, with unforeseen and far-reaching consequences"--
