Enlightening 9 Aug 2012
By Susan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a descendant of Agnes Jones, [her brother is my great grandfather,] and having started researching their family, this book went a long way towards helping me understand that part of Agnes' life. Her sister [the author] has done an amazing job of transcribing Agnes' writings [that she started as a young girl.]
I would love to know what happened to the 'original' diaries, and also if there are any descendants of her family around.
"An enlightening history of what life was like in those days, and a treasured record of Agnes for my family history bookshelf."
Inspiring 7 Aug 2005

Format: Paperback
I found this book both moving and inspiring, really reminding me why many of us became nurses - to CARE. It was very interesting too to read about Agnes's nurse training at Kaiserwerth, the same school as Florence Nightingale - gosh, they were strict!! The account of Agnes's work in the workshouse is also fasciniating.
