Widowed father Leland Fowler turns to homeopathic healer Carissa for help, and she heals both his body and his heart, but when another of her patients suddenly goes into a coma, law officer Leland is faced with a difficult moral and ethical dilemma

Blackwell North Amer
Two years after his wife's sudden, accidental death, a Vermont deputy state prosecutor, Leland Fowler, finds that the stress of raising their small daughter alone has left him with a chronic sore throat. Desperate to rid himself of a malady that has somehow managed to elude conventional medicine, Leland turns to homeopath Carissa Lake - who cures both his sore throat and the aching loneliness at the root of his symptoms.
Just days after Leland realizes he has fallen in love with the first woman who has mattered to him since his wife, one of Carissa's asthma patients falls into an allergy-induced coma. When Carissa comes under investigation, straight-arrow Leland is faced with a moral and ethical dilemma of enormous proportions.
Set against the ongoing clash between conventional and alternative medicine - between what we know science can offer and the miracles that always seem to be just beyond our reach - The Law of Similars is a haunting and deeply atmospheric tale.

I agree with the previous comment. Great Bohjalian story, but no twist at the end.

An enjoyable, easy read and a typical Bohjalian story, except that I was waiting for a big twist at the end and there wasn't one!
