Clifford's ingenious balancing of competing moral imperatives more than makes up for his somewhat unconvincing characterization, and the result is a thought-provoking read.

Synopsis

Leo Miller survives the infamous Bataan Death March but it leaves its mark on him forever. Years later he is a nationally-renowned researcher and practicing cardiologist when Paul Bergman secures a prestigious fellowship at his research facility. Initially intimidated, what Paul finds in Leo Miller is a man with a singular passion to save lives, unshakable moral principles, and a past that both haunts and drives him. Paul becomes Miller's confidant and number-one supporter in the fight of Leo Miller's professional life. This novel explores the demons and angels that lie in the heart of a man, and the sacrifices that must be made to preserve honor. The Heart of Wisdom masterfully weaves the ethics of medical research and the enduring influence of surviving a harrowing war-time experience into a thought provoking must-read.
