Summary

Heartwarming and nostalgic fiction from the best-selling author of The District Nurses of Victory Walk.

It’s 1943, and the district nurses have two new recruits....

As the country ramps up for D-Day, the new nurses are getting to know their patients on their patch in London’s East End.

Lily is quite sure of herself and doesn’t believe she has anything new to learn. She’ll find out the hard way that anyone can be made a fool of when she meets a man who promises her everything.

Ruby thinks that nursing might not be for her - is she as hopeless as she thinks, or will tough times bring out the best in her?

As the war takes on a new urgency, everything is at stake - can the nurses do what is right for the country and for themselves?

Hope there is another book

Loved this book, the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it seemed to finish very abruptly. The story was as ever really captivating, I was just disappointed with the way it ended. I am hoping their is another instalment to this series.

Disappointed .....

Having read the previous books in this series expertly read by Alex Tregear I was very disappointed with the ending, unless Annie is going to add another book to the collection. I expected more both from the book and the ending, it just seemed to stop !!

I enjoyed the previous books enormously but alas this was not a patch on the others I’m sad to say.

Disappointed

I am beyond let down by how this series ended. I preordered this book because I enjoyed all the previous ones. This book barely mentions many of the characters in the previous books, those storylines were unfinished. Overall it was disappointing.

Enjoyable!

A continuation of the previous books, with new characters added and a couple previous ones only mentioned . As it’s about the nurses I didn’t find the lack of the previous characters story lines off putting. It flows well.
