Publisher's Summary

St Angelus runs like a family: the workers take care of their own - a lesson the mysterious new assistant matron, Miss Van Gilder, is about to learn the hard way.

Little Joe has had trouble breathing but the doctors don't take his sister Lily's concerns seriously, least of all Miss Van Gilder. The nurses of Lovely Lane have a secret which is dividing their close knit group and when Nurse Pammy Tanner once again breaks the rules, her actions threaten them all.

    Story
    "As good as book 1"

    Loved this very human story of what life was like for many people in inner cities in the early 1950s.

    Being able to lose myself in a good book has saved my sanity more times than I really want to recall . Books are my favourite friends .

    Story
    "Enjoyable reading a slice of early NHS life and poverty in the 1950s"

    A really enthralling story line , not quite as much about hospital life as Book One in the series , but a vivid picture of Liverpool and pen pictures of many colourful characters . Some pieces of the plot fell a bit too easily into place to be totally credible , but a nice warm and comfortable ending .

    "emotional rollercoaster"

    this book is really brought to life by the excellent narrator. The story continues from the first book, introducing new characters. Interesting description of the birth of the nhs and post war liverpool.
