From the Sunday Times best-selling author Dr Amanda Brown.
Insights into the world of a prison doctor, this time taking us deeper into the walls of Bronzefield, the UK’s biggest women’s prison.
From the drug addicts who call Amanda ‘the mother I never had’ to the women who’ve pushed back at domestic abuse, to women close to release in their 70s, who just want to stay in the place that they’ve always known, these are stories that are heartbreaking, harrowing and heart-warming. Amanda listens, prescribes and does what she can. After all, she’s their doctor.
"Written with both humour and deep concern for the lives of her incarcerated patients. It’s a poignant, compassionate read, giving an insight into the complicated and damaged lives of some of the offenders...a thoroughly enlightening and engaging book." (Mail on Sunday)
"A fascinating, sometimes funny, often gruelling account of working behind bars." (Observer)
"All of the highs and lows of prison life, with heart-warming honesty and anecdotes to make your sides split and your jaw drop in equal measure.... Amanda has filled her book full of funny tales that both she and the inmates have had a good giggle at." (Sunday Express S Magazine)
