No matter how good a doctor you are, it is so hard to look after someone you are emotionally attached to. For a start, you don’t want them to be seriously ill and common sense flies out of the window. Ellie is back in her home town, finishing her training to become a GP and delighted to be nearer to her parents. She has a new home, she’s reunited with an old friend from medical school days and there is the excitement of a passionate and illicit affair. Life is good. But both her parents are trying to protect her from an awful secret. When Ellie finds out and the situation turns out to be far worse than anyone expected, she has to face the realisation that things are going to change forever. This is the third of five books in the popular Teviotdale medical centre series. The first two, Out of Practice and Faith Hope and Clarity are available now.
