It was valuable to me that the friend who recommended this book also suggested that I avoid any hint of its content (including the Library of Congress's classifications on the title page), advice I would pass on to anybody scanning this before reading the novel. Set in England, in the 1990s, this is the story of Kathy H. She is currently a carer, providing support for donors at various stages in the donation process, before eventually becoming a donor herself. As she travels across England to the different sites where her donors are recuperating, she thinks back to her schooldays and her friends, Ruth and Tommy.
This novel was a finalist for the Booker Prize.
