State of Wonder


A pharmaceutical company has been sponsoring reasearch on fertility in the Amazon jungle, but the primary researcher is reclusive and hasn't been sharing information. Staff members are sent there to find out what's going on, and it's a life-changing experience for all involved. The story line is reminiscent of Michael Crichton or Robin Cook, but the writing is more about the characters than page-turning mystery and suspense.
