Product Description


"A gripping coming-of-age drama about life and love on the wards of a pre-war London hospital." (Weightwatchers Magazine)

"A touching novel...reminiscent of Call The Midwife" (Star Magazine)

"Excellent characters...absorbing story...I look forward to the next instalment in the lives of these interesting women." (Bookersatz)

"Fans of Call the Midwife will enjoy this" (Woman's Own)


With some nice romantic elements and sub-plots that are ripe for development in future, this is a great start to a new series of books and I’m already looking forward to The Nightingale Sisters

Book Description

The first in a series of novels following the lives and loves of three girls who sign up in 1936 as nurses in the East End.

From the Back Cover

In at the deep end

Three very different girls sign up as trainee nurses at a big London teaching hospital in 1934.


Leaves her overcrowded, squalid East End home for a better life. But has she got what it takes to keep up with other, better educated girls? And will her hated stepfather ever let her go?


Born for the job, her brother is a doctor, her all-powerful mother a hospital trustee. But will Helen's secret misery be her downfall?


An aristocratic rebel, her carefree attitude will find her up in front of Matron again and again. Will she ever care enough to make a nurse? Or will she go back to the glamorous life she was born to?


What have they let themselves in for?
