The Heart's Hard Turning
by John Farr Rothrock

This is the story of Will Rawlins, a gifted physician and scientist derailed by his passion for an enigmatic young woman who wields her sensuality as a weapon. Damaged and directionless, he drifts southward into Mexico, where he is forced to flee prosecution for a crime not of his own doing.

Set largely in Sonoran Mexico, Baja California, and the strange, deep sea that divides them, The Heart’s Hard Turning is a story of loyalty and betrayal, despair and courage, friendship and death; a story of a deliverance from evil; and, ultimately, a story of our struggle to learn where to love and whom.

John Farr Rothrock is an American author, physician, and clinical neuroscientist. He previously has authored various medical texts and papers, three children’s novels, and five adult novels. He served as the editor-in- chief of a medical journal, Headache, for twelve years and now publishes Migraineur, a quarterly health-related magazine. Dr. Rothrock currently is professor and vice chair of neurology at the George Washington University School of Medicine. He lives in Maryland with his wife and three sons.
