This is an auction for THE LAW OF SIMILARS by Chris Bohjalian.

"As in his successful MIDWIVES, Bohjalian centers his plot on alternative medicine and suspicions of malpractice in a small Vermont community. After asthmatic Richard Emmons consults Carissa Lake, a homeopath and psychologist, he is hospitalized, comatose after deliberately eating food to which he is fatally allergic. Has Richard willfully misapplied homeopathy's "law of similars," or did Carissa go beyond the boundaries of her healing art? State's attorney Leland Fowler, the narrator, is frantic to help her. Not only has she treated him successfully, but she has become the only woman dear to him since his wife's death. As investigations begin, Leland makes a momentous ethical choice, with consequences potentially more dangerous than Carissa's store of poisons. Readers will be attracted by this novel's appealing setting and characters, as well as its fascinating lore about homeopathic medicine."
