Martha B. Boone: Mother Charity, a Big Free Novel

Introducing the long-awaited sequel to The Big Free!

As Mother Charity begins, Dr. Elizabeth Roberts is once again facing the handsome cardiac surgeon, Dr. White—her nemesis. Dr. Roberts has completed her first six months as a surgical intern at the great Charity Hospital in New Orleans and is awaiting her next assignment.

She’s smart and hardworking but naïve and insecure. As she journeys through her rotations, Dr. Roberts struggles to break away from family pressures and survive the bone-crushing intensity of trauma surgery at the busiest center in America.

Will she buckle under the stress of being one of the first women in her field? Or will she find her stride and revel in the joy of surgery?

And will she survive Dr. White’s harsh scrutiny or retreat to the comfort of home in the South Carolina Lowcountry?

Get ready for another unforgettable ride!


Brilliant storytelling and raucous humor. Author Dr. Boone’s take on Urology is an unexpected total reading experience. Masterful and uniquely written with insider information. A published work worthy of every woman and man.

CAPTIVATING! I could not put it down! This is an amazing story of what life is like in a big city charity hospital. And not just ANY big city – NEW ORLEANS. One of the many things I love about this book is the flavor of New Orleans that permeates the pages. The characters are charming, flawed, fun, crazy, every personality under the sun – and the author brings them to life in a way that is mesmerizing. I wanted the book to go on and on – I sure hope that there is a sequel in the works!

What a great book. I laughed I cried I was amazed I was intrigued. My eyes were open to a world I had no knowledge of. Boone brings the characters out and Vivid 3D. You can smell the green paint on the hospital walls. I enjoyed the book so much the first time that I’m reading it a second time and cannot wait for her next book to arrive.
