COURAGE BETWEEN LOVE and DEATH by Joseph Pillitteri


THE COURAGE of LOVE and DEATH by Joseph Pillitteri focuses on several subjects including one as relevant today as it was in the early 1900’s – abortion.

Elspeth has recently landed a nursing position at the 1901 Pan American Exposition Hospital in Buffalo, New York. This is a big boon for her, but things are not going as expected. She has to navigate mischievous patients, egotistical doctors, rival nurses and prejudices. For an Irish girl with a temper, this is no easy feat. Now President McKinley is coming to visit the Expo and everyone is in an uproar. On the home front, her life is no less hectic as she struggles to put food on the table and look out for her younger siblings.

When the unthinkable happens, it is a turning point, not only for the medical industry and our country’s security, but for Elspeth personally. With her career and reputation on the line, will she have the courage to overcome the challenges she faces to clear her name and continue to be there for the ones she loves?

THE COURAGE of LOVE and DEATH is a fast-paced historical, which will have you flipping pages as you follow the protagonist’s emotional journey through to the end.

  1. I currently work for a Medicine School and my office is in a VA medical hospital. I can honestly tell you I never realized how many meetings, lectures, etc. that the residents were expected to attend. It definitely puts a lot on their plate, I do understand it necessary but I think the public should be more aware on the stressors that these residents face all while trying to still learn and care for patients.


  2. My son went through med school and always told us what transpired, how they were taught, treated and what it involved. He is now a pediatrician with a great clinic.


  3. I only know about doctor visits and stays in the hospital. My son works for Stryker. He is the senior quality engineer. He has to approve medical devices before they can be sold to hospitals and clinics. He also has had to observe surgeries that are using their medical devices.


  4. I have been lucky to have the expertise of many professionals and I respect the jobs with which they are tasked: long hours, difficult patients, insurance, etc.


  5. My mom is a retired nurse, so I have always had a lot of respect for those in the medical field. They are all hard workers.


  6. My friend’s daughter is dating an intern and I learned a lot about medical school and the process they go through to pick a hospital for their internship after graduation. It really is a long process.


  7. My major is pharmacy so it is totally related to medical field. This biology area has always been my favorite.


  8. I have a few friends and family members who work in the medical field and I know that they are very dedicated and work extremely hard.


  9. I personally dont work in the medical field but my husband took some EMT training along with his law enforcement career and I know the work is very hard. You have to be very dedicated to your job and helping people or you can get burnt out fast.


  10. I know that the medical field is essential for the health and wellbeing of everyone. It is a field that offers a lot of opportunities for those that are willing to work hard and keep advancing.


  11. Anyone that enters that field is amazing. Not only do they have to have knowledge, but also a kind spirit and I suppose in some situations , a sense of humor.


  12. Im really learning about medical field, my son is a medical student. So in that note, the book sounds very interesting to me.
