Publisher's Summary

All seems tranquil as newly qualified health visitor Sarah motors into a small Kentish hilltop village in her new green mini. She's barely out of the car when she's called to assist the midwife with a bride who's gone into labour in the middle of her own wedding reception. And so her adventures begin....

As a health visitor, Nurse Sarah is as green as grass, but she puts her best foot into wellies and braves the mad dogs, killer ganders and muddy tracks of the farming community. Despite setbacks young Sarah is determined to help the mums she meets, from struggling young mothers in unmodernised farmhouses to doyennes of the county dinner-party set who slave over stuffed olive hors d'oeuvres.

Village life in the 1970s isn't always quite the good life Sarah's been expecting; her attempts at self-sufficiency and cider making lead to drunk badgers and spirited house parties - but will it be the clergyman, the vet or the young doctor who wins Sarah's heart?

During her first year in Kent, Nurse Sarah Hill gets stuck in - reuniting families and helping mums in the midst of a community full of ancient feuds, funny little ways and just a bit of magic.

    "Fantastic memoir"

    This is the second book about Sarah Hill I have read and I only hope she writes more. They are a fantastic peek into nursing and health visiting in the 60s and 70s. A must for any nurse who loves a good nursing memoir.
