It was my friend, Bram Stoker, who told me of the legend of the Wanderer a man who made a bargain with the devil himself, trading his soul for forbidden knowledge and eternal life.
Once I would have dismissed such tales as mere fancy but I knew what I had seen. And there is no mind so open as that of desperate man.
A dark Gothic Victorian thriller, The Kingdom of Bones unfolds in a twilight world of music halls, boxing booths, and travelling theatrical shows; and pits a formidable Pinkerton detective against a man who fears more than justice.
Desperate circumstances were something Evelyn Prentis had to get very used to when she began her life as a nurse. It was in 1934 that Evelyn left home for the first time to enrol as a trainee at a busy Nottingham hospital in the hope of £25 a year.
A Nurse in Time is Evelyn's affectionate and funny account of those days of dedication and hardship, when never-ending nightshifts, strict Sisters and permanent hunger ruled life, and joy was to be found in a late-night pass and a packet of Woodbines.
The second memoir in this collection is A Nurse in Action. Surprising Matron as well as herself, Evelyn Prentis managed to pass her Finals and become a staff-nurse. Encouraged, she took the brave leap of moving from Nottingham to London - brave not least because war was about to break.
Not only did the nurses have to cope with stray bombs and influxes of patients from as far away Dunkirk, but there were also RAF men stationed nearby - which caused considerable entertainment and disappointment, and a good number of marriages ...
But despite all the disruption to the hospital routine, Evelyn's warm and compelling account of a nurse in action, shows a nurse's life would always revolve around the comforting discomfort of porridge and rissoles, bandages and bedpans.

Confessions of an Air Ambulance Doctor is the first ever behind-the-scenes account of life onboard an air ambulance. The first of its kind to carry doctors and surgeons who can take the hospital to the patient. Drug addicts, lorry crashes, open-heart surgery, stab wounds, headless chickens, mating llamas, and strip routines – it’s all in a day’s work for emergency doctor Tony Bleetman and his team.
Whether they are landing in the middle of the M1 or at a maximum security jail, Tony and his crew Helimed 999 are the first on the scene in the most critical of emergencies.
This gripping read will make you laugh, cry and marvel at the wonders of life (and death) in equal measure.

The increasing public awareness of the dangers associated with some immunizations is arousing great apprehension in many parents. They are questioning the long term effects in spite of the widely recommended procedures by health authorities and doctors.
Homoeopathy and Immunization explains the argument against immunization, pointing out the ill effects and dangers, and offers safe homoeopathic solutions that use the body's built-in immunity system, strengthened by good food and satisfactory living conditions. It can play an important role in resisting any epidemic and, in fact, any disease which might attack those who ignore these important factors.
Dr. A. Pulford wrote 'No disease will arise without an existing predisposition to that disease. It is the absence of the predisposition to any particular disease that makes us immune to it. Homoeopathy alone is capable of removing these predispositions.'

Flower healing is the simple and natural method of healing through personality by means of wild flowers, discovered by the late Dr Edward Bach, MB, BS, MRCS, LRCP, DPH. He was a great physician who combined compassion for all who suffer, with a deep love for Nature, her trees and plants.
Dr Bach practised for many years as a Harley Street consultant and bacteriologist but gave up his lucrative practice in 1930 to devote his full time to perfecting this system of healing described in full in his booklet The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies.
Nora Weeks and Victor Bullen worked with Dr Bach and it was to them that the responsibility of his work was bequeathed. In 1964, as a tribute to the doctor's work they published this book to share with others the essence of Nature within the Bach Flower Remedies.
This new edition, with coloured photographs, was published in 1990 and then revised and reprinted in 1998.
