The Further Tales of a Country Doctor are Carter’s continuing stories of the tapestry of life as drawn from overseeing a small-town medical practice in rural Australia.
Over the years, in both private and professional capacities, Carter’s fellow community members have taken him into their lives and opened themselves up to him. They have shared their hopes, their fears, their highs, and their lows. Now their generosity extends to allowing him to share all this with a wider audience.
This series of interlinking short stories are not only about these everyday heroes of rural Australia, but also about the two-way nature of friendship and healing. Rich, spirited, irresistible, often funny, sometimes somber, but overwhelmingly uplifting, the humanity of these stories will stay with you for a long time.
