The summer is coming and for Consultant Dr Dominic Lakenheath, things are going acceptably well; perhaps a little wide around the girth, apart from that he is OK, except he still feels the tragic loss of his wife, Amy. For Jenny Davis, life could not be better. Her husband, Geoff, is a dream catch; promotion is in the air, and with that good fortune so are thoughts of another child. And then there is Dr Mike Doubleday Senior Registrar to Dr Lakenheath; strange things are happening, after quizzing a student doctor he finds he has doodled images of her and scribbled her name all over a page ... Love is in the air for all of them, but death hovers in the wings. Lydford Williams, a retired hospital consultant himself, draws together these three strands as fortune and misfortune slide, immutably, one upon the other. A Summer of Love and Death will be a welcome addition to fans of medical drama.
