New Fiction Book, Remedies, Talks About Chronic Pain

Karen Lee Richards Health Guide
  • From time to time I'm contacted by authors asking me to read and review their non-fiction books on fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, or other chronic pain conditions.  But much to my surprise, a few weeks ago I heard from a fiction author whose had written a novel that dealt with chronic pain issues.  Needless to say I was intrigued. 

    The weekend after receiving Remedies, I settled down to read.  I ended up reading through the night and didn't put it down until I had finished it.  Author Kate Ledger has written a compelling story about a doctor and his wife that really brings the issue of treating pain adequately to the forefront.

    If you want to spark a discussion about living with and getting treatment for chronic pain with people who don't have the problem themselves, Remedies would be a great way to do it.  It's usually a lot easier to get most people to read a novel than it is to persuade them to read a non-fiction book about chronic pain – especially if they feel you're trying to lecture them.  Also, if you belong to a book club or a support group, this would be an excellent book to discuss.

    I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.
