Overview

Doctor Ludmilla Toropov is a Gold Cross bearing Daughter of her Nation, a champion advocate for President for life, Emile Sakovich. Her estranged daughter, Olga, has joined the student dissidents. When a deadly virus sweeps the world, wiping out millions in weeks, her repressive East European nation, under sanctions from the international community, becomes the first to develop a vaccine. But with their antiquated production facilities, they are only able to satisfy the demand of a small section of their population. Doctor Toropov can either watch hundreds of her patients die, or defy the state that nurtured her by attempting to smuggle the drug out to the West to be synthesized. One choice will pit her against her daughter, the other could unearth unpalatable secrets, and land her in a gulag jail.

Set in a world where it seems that even the very walls have ears and nobody can be trusted. ElaineG 5/5* Amazon.co.uk

The portrayal of the lengths a mother will go to protect and love her daughter while sacrificing her own principles is written with great emotion and sensitivity.

The Disease is wonderfully written, and impossible to put down. I'm not one who re-reads books often, but this one is an exception to that rule.
