East to West is a powerful and emotive narration of struggles, tragedy, treachery (during the darkest time of the author’s life) and a fight for justice.
Born in India, the author’s childhood was moulded among the mist and midst of British plantations. After qualifying as a doctor, he worked in India for a few years, left for Africa and settled in the UK where he has devoted more than 35 years to his East Riding of Yorkshire community and the NHS.
Working tirelessly throughout his medical career, he has listened to fellow human beings in their role as patients; not only to their stories of distress, unpleasant experiences and ailments, but also the pleasantries.
Amongst these articulate and fascinating anecdotes relating to his memories as a GP, Dr Abraham also touches on some of his own personal tragedies.
Having lost his young daughter unexpectedly, he was faced – shortly after his daughter’s funeral – with another life-changing bombshell. Two ‘colleagues’ tried to discredit his reputation. This led to a hearing in front of the General Medical Council.
From his early years in India, his medical school memories, and a lifelong love of cricket (and Shakespeare) to settling in the UK, plunging into General Practice, winning national accolades and being cited as a ‘Role Model’ by the globally renowned British Medical Journal, there is so much to read in this thought-provoking book that everyone from the lay reader to medical professionals and memoir fanatics will find plenty to resonate with.
