Garven Wilsonhulme almost gasped as his prospective father-in-law
handed him a check for a huge sum. He could not imagine himself in
possession of a sum which would answer his every need until he
could start making a handsome living as a brain surgeon. He looked
at the gloating expression on his adversary's faceÐa look of
triumph. To the young M.D., it seemed that he had become engaged in
a social poker game with, for him, stupendous consequences riding
on how he plays his hand. He could take the sure figure and run, or
he could ask for even more. In either case he would crush the
innocent pawn in all of this, Elizabeth. That was a secondary
consideration, he had to admit to himself. Or he could do the
\Òright thing\Ó and turn the man down indignantly and
marry his daughter and live happily ever after--in relative
poverty. This is the crux of The Long Climb. What Garven does about
his choice is likely to be the foundation of his life as a
neurosurgeon and the stuff of a great story. The Long Climb, is the
newest novel by Carl Douglass, neurosurgeon turned author who
writes with gripping realism.
