Over the Waters
As “Dr. Botox” to the bored rich women of Chicago, plastic surgeon Max Jordan was shocked by the decision of his son, Joshua, to focus his medical talent on Haitian orphans. Embittered by Joshua’s death, Max searched for resolution in the very place his son called home. The selfless labor of Joshua’s coworkers stunned Max. He was particularly taken by American volunteer Valerie Austin, whose dream of a honeymoon on a tropical beach had been crushed, replaced by a stint working in the impoverished orphanage. But Valerie’s view of Joshua’s sacrifice—and her own—challenged everything Max had lived for. Transformed by his visit to Haiti, and especially by his encounters with Valerie, Max wondered if he could ever return to his “Max-a-Million” lifestyle, or if the doors to his gilded cage had finally opened.
