A Country Doctor's Choice, Paperback Book


Autumn, 1962. The market town of Everham in Hampshire is bubbling with rumours.

Dr Leigh McDowall is after a woman who doesn't return his affections.

In fact, Shelagh Hammond is helplessly infatuated with another doctor.

But she's also busy caring for her mother Bridget who has a secret of her own.

Meanwhile, Reverend Derek Bolt is troubled by the unwanted attentions of a female parishioner and confides in head teacher Jeremy North.

But Jeremy's home life is in disarray and feeling lost he turns to a hospital sister for comfort.

As their stories intertwine, conflicts erupt into lifechanging decisions and scandals.

Set against the back-drop of the Profumo affair that rocked Britain, Everham's own politics reach a dramatic crescendo.
