Is There Anything You Want? Paperback
What do Mrs H., Rachel, Edwina, Ida, Sarah, Dot, Chrissie have in common?
They're all women, but they're fat, thin, old, young, married or single - and appear as diverse as human nature can be.
But they are all survivors. This enthralling novel follows the ripples that go out into ordinary lives that have been changed by a shared experience, all connected by the same hospital clinic in a small Northern town.
This is a novel about what it means to live in the shadow of disease, and with scars, whether mental or physical.
From the marvellous ambivalence of the title question, it leaves us with a whole lot more to consider about life and its infinite variety.

Review by Marlene-NL
on Monday, June 30, 2008 I wrote about this book:<br/><br/>Wow another book that took me long to read.<br/>maybe how I read it wasn't the best way. Every time a little bit while reading other books.<br/>I did find it an interesting thing. I always love to read books about various women. <br/><br/>
