If you enjoy medical dramas, romance, and thought-provoking questions, consider this book your prescription.
Double Helix (Eileen Merriman) is one for the book club (because we definitely needed to talk about it afterwards!). Childhood friends Emily and Jake have shared a lot, but nothing so traumatic as assisting with Jake’s mother’s death when Huntington’s disease made her life unbearable. Years later they reconnect, fall in love, and start a family, but it’s a risk. Will Jake develop Huntington’s disease like his mother? Will Emily be asked to end his suffering too? Honestly, this book was addictive; we were way too emotionally involved to put it down.
