A classic novel of goodwill, compassion, and finding meaning through service to others.
When Robert Merrick's life is saved at the expense of the life of an eccentric but adored surgeon, the carefree playboy is forced to reevaluate his own path. Merrick, inspired by reading the doctor's private papers, embarks on a course of anonymous philanthropy. An engaging and dramatic story of personal redemption and private sacrifice, this spiritual tale has served as an inspiration for both the stage and the screen.
