A career in medicine is finally realized, but interrupted by a season of depression, reconnecting the author to her past. Teachable moments experienced with the “patients themselves” are best revealed through their individual stories in the pediatric oncology wards, AIDS isolation rooms, and the “Butterfly Room.”

The book ends by examining our connectedness, fulfilling its premise “to pay homage to those who have come in and out of my life for however brief or long a time.”
