The Spare Room, Paperback / softback Book

The Spare Room Paperback / softback

Part of the Canons series


When Helen offers her spare room to her old friend Nicola, she has little idea of what lies ahead.

Nicola has cancer and, sceptical of the medical establishment, is in the city for a course of alternative treatment.

She is determined to deal with her illness in her own way, regardless of the advice that Helen can offer. In the weeks that follow, Nicola's fight against cancer will turn not only her own life upside down but the lives of everyone around her.

Told with humour and honesty, this unforgettable novel charts a friendship as it is tested in the face of death.
