'I am a junior doctor. It is 4 a.m. I have run arrest calls, treated life-threatening bleeding, held the hand of a young woman dying of cancer, scuttled down miles of dim corridors wanting to sob with sheer exhaustion, forgotten to eat, forgotten to drink, drawn on every fibre of strength that I possess to keep my patients safe from harm.' How does it feel to be spat out of medical school into a world of pain, loss and trauma that you feel wholly ill-equipped to handle? To be a medical novice who makes decisions which - if you get them wrong - might forever alter, or end, a person's life? To toughen up the hard way, through repeated exposure to life-and-death situations, until you are finally a match for them? In this heartfelt, deeply personal account of life as a junior doctor in today's health service, former television journalist turned doctor, Rachel Clarke, captures the extraordinary realities of ordinary life on the NHS front line. From the historic junior doctor strikes of 2016 to the 'humanitarian crisis' declared by the Red Cross, the overstretched health service is on the precipice, calling for junior doctors to draw on extraordinary reserves of what compelled them into medicine in the first place - and the value the NHS can least afford to lose - kindness. Your Life in My Hands is at once a powerful polemic on the systematic degradation of Britain's most vital public institution, and a love letter of optimism and hope to that same health service and those who support it. This extraordinary memoir offers a glimpse into a life spent between the operating room and the bedside, the mortuary and the doctors' mess, telling powerful truths about today's NHS frontline, and capturing with tenderness and humanity the highs and lows of a new doctor's first steps onto the wards in the context of a health service at breaking point - and what it means to be entrusted with carrying another's life in your hands. 'Eloquent and moving' - Henry Marsh 'There have been many books written by young doctors... but none comes close to Clarke's' - Sunday Times 'From the very heart of the NHS comes this brilliant insight into the continuing crisis in the health service. Rachel Clarke writes as the accomplished journalist she once was and as the leading junior doctor she now is - writing with humanity and compassion that at times reduced me to tears.' - Jon Snow, Channel 4 News 'Dr Clarke has written a blockbuster, a page-turner, a tear-jerker. This is a "from-the-heart" front-line account of the human cost of the wanton erosion of a magnificent ideal - healthcare free at the point of need, funded through public taxation, available to all - made real in the UK for near 70 years. It is a love-song for the wonderful National Health Service that has embodied - to an extent equalled nowhere in the world - the principle that healthcare is not a commodity but a great duty of state.' - Prof. Neena Modi, President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health 'A powerful account of life on the NHS frontline. If only Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt could see the passion behind the people in the NHS, they might stop treating them as the enemy, and understand that without them we don't have an NHS worth the name.' - Alastair Campbell

'I think it's wrong for me to complain that people don't understand disability and then refuse to talk about my personal life. Telling my story is the best way I know to make issues I care about understood' In autumn 2005, Alison Lapper's body became familiar to thousands of people when Marc Quinn's 16-foot marble statue of her - Alison Lapper: Pregnant - was placed on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth. MY LIFE IN MY HANDS is Alison's story: from her mother's rejection at birth, through a childhood deprived of affection in children's homes, to independence, a first class art degree, motherhood and critical success. Her resilience, fortitude and humour are humbling, yet she rejects any notion of 'bravery'. From the beginning, Alison was different to most children, yet through the strength of her personality and the nurturing of her artistic talents, she was determined to live as full a life as possible. MY LIFE IN MY HANDS challenges our perceptions of disability by showing how Alison overcame pain, prejudice, violence and loneliness to reach a state of happy independence. MY LIFE IN MY HANDS is an extraordinary and compelling story like no other.

Your Life in My Hands vividly describes Gods pursuit of His created, and the lengths to which He goes to draw them into His presence. Pamela Rose is one such creature, and recalls her lifes journey thus far; the good, the bad and the ugly of it all. She attests to the fact that God is in the business of the impossible talking birds! She witnesses to the removal, in one split second, of alcohols long-time addiction, and she illustrates her miraculous transfer from the darks hold into Gods dazzling light. Gracefully broken and mercifully healed, her years of empty busyness and endless striving are no more. Today she walks freely against the ever-rising tide of resistance to our Creator, God, firmly grounded and eternally grateful. With arms locked in inseparable love, and protected by swathes of invisible forces, she seeks to share the heart of God with any and all who will listen and hear, just as she did.

Biddy is a fisherman in the waters of Canada in Bella Coola. He, who is a small hedonist, does not feel that feeling is all or the most important thing to look for. He wants to feel but also wants to give and receive. Have your little pleasure for the day and your little pleasure for the night. Feeling and nostalgia draw him away, for a moment, from desire and pleasure. Professor Neil in London has put "health" as the most important value of his life, and now stands in absolute value in religion. It is also the absolute value for love and was already object of respect for the man of modernity, who only used for himself, without god. What is love? What is creation? What is longing? What are the stars? He asks himself as if he were the last man on earth and blinks. In the end, life, long and healthy, but boring, will be unbearable. That is why he takes drugs, which will lead him to death. A little poison or stimulant or alcohol to have pleasant dreams. It is a paradox that his life, which he tries to extend through a rigorous health policy, ends prematurely and at the wrong time. Fabio, a corrupt policeman from Caracas, and Mette, a prostitute from Amsterdam, live an atomized time, a discontinuous time. There is nothing that links the events between them generating a relationship, that is, a duration. Tomorrow no one would remember that feat that had been their lives. Atomization, isolation and experience of discontinuities are also responsible for various forms of violence. The next time without meaning is the greatest violence against reality. Today, all this is plunged into the general fear. No one attacks anyone, especially if it is illegal. Today, more and more social structures that previously provided continuity and duration are crumbling. In contrast to all this appear two unreal characters in an unreal world, Narayan and Indira that are known in India. They no longer focus on that love in a point, in a person, in a circumstance, but they enlarge their vision and see everything as a great landscape and that is in that landscape. A little is like the mystical experience, it is like a special physical sensation of the infinite and the aroma of the eternal. As the incense that fills the space with the scent of cedar and pine, it is like the aroma of space that calms and releases.
