harsh but funny times, 9 May 2010
All three books in this series have been a thoroughly enjoyable read. My father was a doctor in this area of London during this time and although he is now in his late eighties and struggles to read, he is also thoroughly enjoying the evocative scenes of this part of London in the middle of the last century. These books are sad, funny, and extremely interesting when you think how far medicine has progressed during the last 50 years and the writer skillfully takes you with her into her world of learning about nursing, midwifery, convent life, poverty and growing up! A very entertaining read.
