About this title


Paperback. Pub Date :2008-07-01 Pages: 500 Language: English Publisher: HarperCollins UK Its 1983 and 20-year-old university student Helen Fleet should be enjoying the best days of her life. but while all her friends go on to graduate and have careers in London. she is forced to return to her parents home. bedridden with vile symptoms that doctors cant explain and often dont believe.She is eventually diagnosed with ME. a cruel illness that she must learn to live with over the next decade.All of her relationships are tested - and changed - by her condition. but Helens story is so much more than an account of her suffering.At times sad and at times funny. the author skillfully leads the reader through the trials and tribulations of Helens life. perfectly capturing her unusual experiences as a twenty-something woman living in 80s Scotland with a mystery illness.Based on the aut...

‘A remarkable first novel ... word perfect on neurological ME' Tony Britton, Publicity Manager, ME Association
