Good Story and Good Characters

Isobel on the Way to the Corner Shop - Amy Witting

Isobel said how could she write about love when she didn't know the first thing about it. She thought this whole enterprise had been a mistake. That perhaps she couldn’t write after all. Two successful stories and a rave note gotm the editor -Fenwick- and she was off. Fenwick’s letter seemed like a directive.  She could not give up, she must not fail. She had burnt all her bridges - thrown up her job. So what was love? A truce? A temporary suspension of the normal state of hostility between the sexes? Isobel went for one night stands not relationships and love. Isobel was on her way to the store when she collapses and wakes up in the hospital and told she had T B. Than she is in a sanitarium named Mornington. Somehow Isobel becomes a favorite to most of the patients. The doctors become friends to Isobel and want her to get a job working  there.

I enjoyed this book. I really liked the plot and pace. This was well written. I liked seeing Isobel mature in this book and make friends through her stay at Mornington. The author did a great job on describing the stages of Isobels illness as well as how they people were treated that had T B. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it. I would have liked to rate it 4.5.
