Alice in Bed

by Cathleen Schine

College sophomore Alice Brody is in bed, and she does not know why.  The pain came on suddenly one night, and now the young woman cannot walk. 

The first half of the novel covers Alice’s mystery illness (which is never fully explained) and focuses on her visitors—family, doctors, and other healers.  The second half of the novel focuses on her recovery—a series of successful operations and her recuperation.

Strangely appealing.
