The award-winning debut novel from the author of Venus Flaring and Tenterhooks.Elizabeth, a young, overworked hospital doctor, gets a phone call from her father late on a Friday night telling her that her mother is dangerously ill. Over the course of the weekend that follows, Elizabeth, on duty as ever and confronting the barely controlled chaos of a busy casualty ward, finds moments to reminisce about her childhood, its joys and its miseries. Past and present are interwoven in a series of vivid tableaux, drawing the reader into an intimate understanding of Elizabeth's life as a whole.

About the Author:

Suzannah Dunn is the author of nine previous books of fiction: `Darker Days Than Usual', `Blood Sugar', `Past Caring', `Quite Contrary', `Venus Flaring', `Tenterhooks', `Commencing Our Descent', `The Queen of Subtleties' and her most recent success `The Sixth Wife'. She lives in Shropshire.

Review:

`In this vivid picture of "normal" life, Dunn's Elizabeth, the oldest of three sisters, is a witty, down-to-earth female whom you really care for. Quite Contrary isn't a weepy slice of bedtime reading, it's a well-observed chapter on growing up - and it proves a touching and remarkably unpredictable read.'Time Out
