In eleventh-century London, a baby holds the hand of his death mom and is terrified, conscious something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole turns into a fast-talking swindler, peddling a valueless medication. yet as he matures, his unusual gift—an acute sensitivity to imminent death—never leaves him, and he yearns to develop into a healer.
Arab madrassas are the single genuine clinical colleges, and he makes his perilous solution to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim faculties, yet claiming he's a Jew, he reviews less than the world’s most famed medical professional, Avicenna. How the girl who's his nice love struggles opposed to her purely rival—medicine—makes a riveting sleek classic.
The Physician is the 1st ebook in Noah Gordon’s Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which maintains with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.
