As the war takes its toll, the Nightingale nurses must do their bit for king and country....
Dora is the devoted mother of twin babies, but, determined to help the war effort, she goes back to work at the Nightingale Hospital. More used to nights out in the West End, Jennifer and Cissy volunteer in the hope of tending to handsome soldiers. They soon find out that nursing isn't quite what they were expecting.
For shy and troubled Eve, the hospital provides an escape from the pressures of home, but the life of a nurse is never easy, especially at wartime.
Can the nurses rally together while war rages all around them? And will the Nightingale Hospital survive the Blitz?

The story line was good about a young girl who has a sad life, living with a very unkind aunt when her parents die, until she becomes a nurse and finds herself a life she can be happy in.
I enjoyed the story line when the main character decides to change her life regardless of threats from her aunt!
Character voices exaggerated!
Childhood sadness evolving into a hardworking caring young woman who eventually believes in herself!!
I didn't like the narrators male voices, they were too deep and very slow, no one talks like that! The girls were quite squeaky! Speeding it up ruined the rest!
Love all the stories of the Nightingale. They are so very realistic from the nursing standpoint of that period. Performance is excellent as well. I've read them all and am now reading (or I should say listening) for the second time.
"One of the best in the series!"
A very good story, especially for fans of the style. Followers of the series will revisit their favourite characters through hardship, romance and some very touching moments.
