Out of Darkness by Lawrence W. Gold, M.D.

Writers know that publishing a novel, is to a large extent, is a crapshoot. Writing a quality novel isn't easy, but hopefully with great reviews the novel has a chance. Despite excellent reviews, sales of Out of Darkness have been slow. Perhaps it's the subject material or perhaps I haven't promoted it effectively. Although topical, sexual trafficking may not be a subject with which readers choose to spend time, yet, the story is compelling and ultimately inspirational. Here's a five star review: 5.0 out of 5 starsA MUST READ BOOK By P. Blevins on January 29, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition Out of Darkness is a medical novel by Lawrence W Gold. MD. It is as wonderful as his other books. This book is very realistic and the characters are well-developed. The plot is well-developed and is constantly changing. I could not put this novel down. Dr. Cynthia is a conscientious and graceful doctor. She works for Brier Hospital and is content with her job. A small group of physicians want her to run for president of the medical staff; but she has no desire to do so. One of the other doctors on staff, Bernie Engel , does not want her to be president so will grab any reason to keep her off. However, he doesn’t need to do much because her past is coming to light. Cynthia was sold as a small child into sex-slavery. When she was thirteen, she was taken out of that situation by Federal Agent Owen Cash and Lydia Davis. She was placed in the foster care of Owen’s brother and his wife, Richard and Karen Cash. They encouraged her and saw her through high school and into college. She was extremely intelligent and motivated. She had an edetic memory and remembered everything she read. She became a doctor and worked at Brier Hospital and had her own private practice. When her past comes out, she began to have patients no longer see her as well as obtained new patients. Is there anything she can do to stop this vicious cycle? Here's the link: take a look and give it a read. Larry


It's been obvious that many of us, yours truly included, don't take in enough calcium. While this is important for all, it's most important for women predisposed toward osteoporosis. One barrier was the thought that calcium supplements might increase cardiovascular risk. Fortunately, as this abstract suggests, supplementation is safe. I'd drink a glass of milk to that, if I drank milk. Larry CALCIUM AND OSTEOPOROSIS
