Sometimes the healing

    By

    Sometimes the healing is a novel introducing Stephanie Harman, who has built up an alternative health clinic that seems to be an amazing success story. Some people laugh at the Greek name, some worry about the strange healing processes, but the proof is clear: the patients mostly get better. SallyAnne Clark's original debut novel follows the stories of the staff, patients and the helpers at the clinic, starting with Stephanie herself, to reveal the magic behind the healing. Jane is the book centre librarian and a previous OCD patient. Supposedly cured, her old compulsions re-emerge in new guises. Mariella, the cook, was a patient and refugee when the clinic opened and her terrible history has left her mute. Daniel, the well-liked Alexander Technique teacher, takes a gamble in allowing a member to stay in his group because he believes that everyone can be healed. While Tom the elderly gardener is keeping vandalism a secret from Stephanie, for fear of losing his beloved gardens. As their lives intertwine, a Greek tragedy starts to unfold after a reporter visits to find out if any of the rumours are true. And when Stephanie is betrayed by someone she trusts, the future of the clinic is threatened in a way that none of them could have imagined... Inspired by Marika Cobbold and Anna Quindlen, Sometimes the healing will appeal to readers of women's fiction and those who are interested in alternative medicine.
