The Brotherhood of Silence gives voice to the recollections of a woman who suffers debilitating injuries in an accident and then faces working through how to live with a disability and how to pursue doggedly the resolution of a medical malpractice lawsuit that took nine years to settle. Margaret Holland, assisted by Delana Reese, co-author, turns her personal experience, captured in the pages of a surprisingly therapeutic journal, into a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and to the grace of God who answers prayers for help in troubled times. Preserving the form of the author’s original journal with dated entries, The Brotherhood of Silence does not avoid the depths of pain and the shadows of despondency. In turn, though, it finds cause for celebrating over the triumph wrought by the author’s human spirit guided and empowered by the grace of God. As Margaret Holland notes, “I believe everything happens for a reason. And if we look hard enough, we can... More > always find the good that comes from it.”< Less

Dec 27, 2015Using 29 meticulous journals kept over nearly a decade as the basis for the narrative, Holland and Reese have captured both the drama and tedium of wading through the legal system in Holland's pursuit of justice regarding medical malpractice and a mistrial in order to encourage other in similar circumstances. So many stories being published today seem to focus on the negative, with folks becoming bitter rather than better, exhibiting despair rather than hope. That is not the case with this memoir. While much pain, loss, disappointment, discouragement, and hardship are present, they do not triumph. Rather Margaret Holland's story is filled with gratitude and optimism as she "lets go and lets God" bear the burdens she carries. Read and be encouraged.
Dec 21, 2015Having worked in medicine for many years, and being involved in a legal proceeding for six long years and counting, I cannot say that I was surprised by what I read, unfortunately, but I was encouraged that this book was written and the public is given a glimpse into the medical "brotherhood" as well as the legal system. Margaret's story, while tragic, is very inspiring. If allowed by the reader, it breeds compassion for Margaret and a particular awareness the general public needs in order to protect themselves in contact with these professional fields. I couldn't put the book down and I do recommend this book to all readers, and in particular to those who would be forewarned.
Nov 18, 2015Margaret's story, The Brotherhood of Silence, is well crafted and written, a book that you just can't put down. Although Margaret's experiences are unusual, I found myself relating personally to several areas in her story, often comparing the way I handled a situation to the kind and gentle attitude she carried throughout her years of trauma and trouble. I learned that my response to difficulties in my own life is a choice. Margaret's resilience, moral strength, courage, heart and faith are truly inspiring, and I highly recommend this book to all readers!
