In the summer of 1917, the renowned veterinarian Dr. David Roberts and his socialite wife, Mary, suffer a tragic loss that leaves them both isolated and alone, struggling to find comfort in whatever ways they can. That winter, amid his lingering grief, Dr. Roberts’ prosperous business now faces unforeseen challenges, and in attempt to overcome them, he begins writing a book with the help of a young schoolteacher. While the distraction of the project brings him momentary relief, the secret pain he’s been carrying proves to be too much for him to escape alone. Over time, as his relationship with the young teacher deepens, complicating the troubles of his marriage, he must ultimately face the reality that by trying to avoid hurting those around him, he might be doing just that. Based on a true story, The Good Doctor draws on a rich variety of sources as it takes readers on a passionate journey through the American heartland at a time of change for both the country and the tragic lives of the characters who inhabit these pages
