I ordered this as I also did part of my nurse training in East London, although in the late 80's. So many of Sarah's memories remind me of my time as a student nurse, and the description of the milk kitchen took me straight back there! Those were the days when ward sisters and matrons ran the hospital and were feared, and mostly respected by staff, patients and parents alike. How things have changed! I read the book in 3 days!! I would recommend this to anyone....and I think current student nurses would find it particularly fascinating. Looking forward to the next instalment.
