I enjoyed this book. But felt that it ended before it should have. An insight into nursing care between 2 World Wars. When patients were nursed with care and thoughtfulness, not just a number like they are in 2016.
a very good story of what nursing is really like in those days .
the one when she tells the Dr that he is a bad one.
it made me cry
I am now looking for more of her books Brilliant
I enjoyed Donna Douglas' Nightingale series, but I think I liked this story even better. The fresh set of characters provided a good mix and I found all the main story lines engaging. The plot was fairly predictable, but there were a few good twists. As always, Penelope Freeman read the story beautifully.
I love Donna Douglas's stories and Penelope Freeman is. fatantic narrator. Can't wait for the next installment.
if you liked call the midwife series you will love this. i got all my work done whilst listening to the book cathy skely brill
"Another great book."
If you like other books by Donna Douglas you won't be disappointed. Such a great story.
