Publisher Description

" The Law of Similars is fast-paced and absorbing. Few writers can manipulate a plot with Bohjalian's grace and power."-The New York Times Book Review

From the number one bestselling author of Midwives comes this riveting medical thriller about a lawyer, a homeopath, and a tragic death.  When one of homeopath Carissa Lake's patients falls into an allergy-induced coma, possibly due to her prescribed remedy, Leland Fowler's office starts investigating the case.  

But Leland is also one of Carissa's patients, and he is begining to realize that he has fallen in love with her.  As love and legal obligations collide, Leland comes face-to-face with an ethical dilemma of enormous proportions.  Graceful, intelligent, and suspenseful, The Law of Similars is a powerful examination of the links between hope and hubris, love and deception.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Chris Bohjalian's The Light in the Ruins.

Customer Reviews

Lisa Barton ,

Love story with potential but a fast paced page turner...

A lovely confection of a love story with justice gone sour, and a thought provoking novel on the laws of people who practice homeopathy like the type of cook they are in the kitchen.
