Jess Wright’s first work in fiction, A Stream to Follow, is a novel that searches the depths of trauma, healing, and forgiveness. Set in 1944 to 1946, the book traces the postwar struggles of a battlefield surgeon who saw savage front-line action in France and Germany. His second novel, Dance in a Madhouse, tells a thrilling tale of a young doctor’s quest to find his way out of an early twentieth century mental asylum.
