88% done with A Country Doctor’s Notebook

From watching the television show I was curious as to how they came up with the subplot of the morphine.

That whole chapter was very sad to read about. He kept talking about how being at the hospital was like being on a desert island, totally isolated, and this story did an impressive job of conveying a type of isolation much more terrible.

I wonder if that’s what the revolution was like?
