Book – April’s read

VICKERS, Salley. The Other Side of You.  Netley Australia:  Griffin Press. 2006.

Dr. David McBride is a psychiatrist for whom death exerts an unusual draw.  Elizabeth Cruikshank is a woman who is admitted to his hospital. She is hesitant to open up and share the life experiences that brought her to attempt suicide.  There was something about Elizabeth that Dr Mcbride finds both strange and disturbing.  This is a story of trust lost, pain and the complexities of the human heart.

“There is no cure for being alive.”

“She is a slight woman, pale, with two wings of dark hair which framed her face and gave it the faintly bird-like quality that characterised her person”

This is Bourgeois Book Club’s suggested read for the month of April, 2014.  Enjoy!
