Requiem for the Bone Man
Requiem for the Bone Man depicts the events in the life of Robert Galen, the son of working-class immigrant parents who grows up to pursue his life’s work and dream—the practice of medicine. After a series of tragedies and challenges, in which his faith and dedication are severely tested, he finds himself on the brink of despair. It is then that Galen is reunited with a close friend from his youth, and in the process discovers a renewed reason for hope and even optimism. Requiem for the Bone Man is a unique look at an individual whose life has consisted of peering inside other people, but who now must confront the most difficult challenge that faces us all—looking squarely inside ourselves.
