"she powerfully articulates the need for better care for those we rely on to care for us"
The Bookseller
"she recalls her days on the wards in the most moving ways."
Red
"Admirable intentions run up against an NHS starved of cash in a doctor-novelist’s moving chronicle of life on the wards"
The Guardian
"While the medical profession’s loss may be publishing’s gain, one cannot help but wish that the NHS might be filled in future with doctors just like Cannon"
The Observer
"Breaking and Mending is a brilliant observation of hospital life"
The Spectator
"It is a long book, but is peppered with delightful, telling anecdotes and details."
The Sunday Times
"This raw and emotional memoir of those times is full of depth and insight, and made me so grateful to all those who work in healthcare"
Prima
"A doctor turned novelist gives a dramatic account of mental and physical exhaustion on the wards"
The Times
"it has as much to teach new doctors as anatomy and physiology and pharmacology textbooks. Perhaps even more. "
The Daily Telegraph
