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.

no I never read a book twice
I was a nurse I enjoy a good story about nursing and the nightingale story are very good I think I have read them all
how the wards worked in the past and the staff had to work so hard and made a very good job of it
the story of young girls working hard to become nurses and all the problems that come with it
a very human story
Well written story like the other nightingale books. With expert narration by Penelope Freeman as always.
"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
"Another great listen"
This is a great series and hopefully there will be more. A bit of s romantic but I thoroughly enjoyed this listen
"Loved the story and beautifully narrated."
Thoroughly enjoyable story and the narration brought each character to life. A ver y enjoyable experience could listen to repeatedly.
"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.
