I got about 120 pages in and just lost interest. Somehow, I didn't find this as funny or engaging as One Pair of Hands. I think it was easier to laugh about maid service; healing the sick isn't quite the same fodder for humor. Also, by page 80, she'd already used the N word twice; once as a nickname of a soldier who has frizzy hair and once to describe how a burn-victim's face looked (I didn't really even get how that related). While I understand that older books were written in different times, I find racial slurs, whether about Jews or Africans or Asians or whatever, to be very hard to take.
