Interview with Talk Radio Europe
This is the story of three women Moira GP, her daughter Rose and Nyaga who Moira meets through her work as a GP. Their lives intertwine and the story progresses from the viewpoint of each character. Without giving away the plotline, this novel deals with some serious issues and there is sadness in the story but the narrative is well constructed and keeps the reader interested throughout. Sometimes the writing can be a little clinical which is probably due to the authors background as a GP and done of the medical details are unnecessary. However overall a good read and a book I would highly recommend.
A Human Condition is set in Edinburgh and tells the story of three women- a GP, her daughter at university in Bristol and a nurse from Botswana. They are affected by and supported by each other as all three women need to find a way to cope with major episodes in their lives, which are explored with sensitivity. The writing format with having each chapter written from the viewpoint of one of the women works very well. Despite difficult issues raised this is an uplifting book and illustrates the positive side of human nature and it left me feeling that I wanted to know what the characters would be doing in the years to come. An enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it
I am married with two grown up children and live in Edinburgh with my husband and dog. I studied medicine at Edinburgh University and then specialised in General Practice, going on to work as a part-time GP in East Lothian for 27 years.
I have always loved reading and decided to try my hand at writing. My first novel 'Taking Medicine' is loosely based on my experiences at medical school. The book was published in 2017.
My latest book 'A Human Condition', published by Matador, has a G.P. as its main character. The story is largely about family, but it also explores the subject of elder care and, again, draws on details from my medical background.
