Publisher's Summary

As Christmas 1938 approaches, the staff at the Nightingale Hospital have their own wishes for the festive season. Ward sister Frannie Wallace is hoping she won't have to live through another war like the one that claimed her fiance. Staff Nurse Helen Dawson wants to find happiness again after the death of her husband Charlie. But is she looking for love in the wrong place?

Matron Kathleen Fox struggles to keep up morale. But while everyone else worries about the future of the Nightingale, it's for her own future that Kathleen truly fears. As the country prepares itself for war, one thing is for sure - nothing at the Nightingale Hospital will be the same again.

    "I loved it"

    Excellent story and excellent reader. The reader makes the book sing or fall flat. There's a bit more angst than is needed tho

    Story
    "I love these books!! The era, the simplicity."

    I love the accents of the narrator. The medical insight into those times in history and the way of life in London is wonderful.
