Robert Lesslie's story collection Angels in the ER was called "a chronicle of mankind at its best" by actor Richard Thomas. Readers have agreed--the book has sold over 125,000 copies Now, in Angels on Call, Dr. Lesslie chronicles more incidents and people from his 25 years in the ER.
This fast-paced, inspiring, and thought-provoking volume reveals many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be "angels" in their own way. Readers will be captivated as they meet.
- patients who choose life despite difficult circumstances
- people whose condition of body--or soul--demands split-second action

Woven throughout is a question: Are we "on call"--are we available--to help others? Readers will be inspired to consider this question as they share intimate joys and struggles of people just like them.
