Guardians of the west: The Malloreon Series, Book 1
"I am one of the old school and believe that a woman's place is within the home … However, I cannot, I will not, condone unfairness amongst females. I suggest that in due course you send your Matron a letter of thanks. You had after all a most unusual reference."
In 1949, Staff Nurse Georgie Edwards is asked to chaperone medical students undertaking their practical exams when suddenly the penny drops. Georgie wants to learn to diagnose and treat too. Against the odds, she wins herself a place to study medicine at London's St Bartholomew's Hospital, and she sets about becoming not a consultant "who sweeps by," but a doctor who listens and cares. Yet Georgie wants to fall in love and start a family as well as have a career--is this one dream too many for a woman in the 1950s? Warm and full of humor, The Best Medicine is Georgie's fascinating memoir of her early years as a nurse and doctor.

A sequel to THE BELGARIAD, Garion has slain the evil God Torak, and fulfilled the prophecy. But suddenly another prophecy is foretold. Again a great evil is brewing in the East. And again Garion finds himself caught between two ancient prophecies, with the fate of the world resting on him....
Garion has slain the evil God Torak and been crowned King of Riva. The Prophecy has been fulfilled--or so it seems. While the strange child Errand was growing up in the Vale of Aldur with Polgara and Durnick, showing only occasional flashes of inexplicable knowledge and power, Garion is learning to rule and be a husband to his fiery little Quuen, Ce'Nedra.
