Summary

Christmas may be the season of goodwill and festive cheer, but not for the poor of 1950s Liverpool. And for St Angelus Hospital in Lovely Lane, it is frantically busy. There are the old, the dying, the children and the emergencies.

The nurses, known locally as the Angels of Lovely Lane, are run off their feet. Dana, Beth, Pammy and Victoria hardly have time to catch their breath, let alone have a Christmas of their own.

Lovely story

As always written with feeling and true to life. You feel as though you know the characters and get really involved with the story.

Nearly but not quite 5 stars across the board

Though I thoroughly enjoyed this book and although not stated to be part of the Three book Lovely Lane series it clearly was connected as most of the usual characters were there and there was mention of those that weren’t. Just one very small flaw and that was no follow-up or mention at all of Beth Harper’s boyfriend Oliver Gaskell. Pammy Tanner’s and Emily Haycock’s stories were continued so this was an obvious missing part if you’d listened to all 3 of the other books but for this I would otherwise have given the story 5 stars

Good story

This is an enjoyable book but I found the narrator's voice very irritating and false, this spoilt the enjoyment

Listened to the whole series

Listened to the whole series of the Nurses of lovely lane and thoroughly enjoyed every one.
Human stories if ordinary post war families in Liverpool have had been superbly narrated making you feel as if you were there.

Excellent yet again!

I've listened all day to this book and struggled to stop so I can sleep. Leaves me wanting more for the sequels if there are any... It's been enjoyable from start to finish and you don't wonder who is who like in some stories.. Brilliant
