“How much can one friend be asked to give another? The Spare Room is a moving, powerful, and even funny story of two woman whose friendship is tested by cancer and an inability to let go of what was.”
— Aly Valentine, Harrison Street Books, Easton, MD

Description


Helen lovingly prepares her spare room for her friend Nicola. She is coming to visit for three weeks, to receive treatment she believes will cure her cancer. From the moment Nicola staggers off the plane, gaunt and hoarse but still somehow grand, Helen becomes her nurse, her guardian angel and her stony judge. The two women - one sceptical, one stubbornly serene - negotiate an unmapped path through Nicola's bizarre therapy, stumbling towards the novel's terrible and transcendent finale.
