The Good Doctor

£2.49

Product description

When Laurence Waters arrives at his rural hospital posting, Frank is instantly suspicious.
Laurence is everything Frank is not - young, optimistic and full of new schemes. The two become uneasy friends, while the rest of the staff in the dilapidated hospital view Laurence with a mixture of distrust and awe.
The town beyond the hospital is also coping with new arrivals, and the return of old faces.The Brigadier - a self-styled dictator from apartheid days - is rumoured still to be alive. And down at Mama's place, a group of soldiers have moved in with their malign commandant, a man Frank has met before and is keen to avoid.

Laurence wants to help, but in a world where the past is demanding restitution from the present, his ill-starred idealism cannot last.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
