We thoroughly enjoyed these memoirs from start to finish, and Zoe certainly left us wanting more of her tales - Written in an individual and heartfelt manner, we felt we got to know Zoe's patients and could visualise events as they unfolded - Zoe's memoirs demonstrated what a privileged role nurses have and that every person has a life full of personal experiences which should not be lost as their needs change - Well done Zoe, we loved it and we hope it inspires people not only working within the profession but those who feel they could offer people care in an individual way with dignity, love and respect.

A great insight into the life and work of a dedicated nurse.
With humour and sadness, Zoe shares her thoughts and memories in this well balanced view of life.

This really is an exceptional read. The forward of this book written by Geoff Thompson, surly, truly reflects the author Zoe in every way. By the time the book had been finished, that feeling of "oh no" came upon me, hence a reread. There is an element of someone we know in all her patients, which made my read all the more enjoyable. Some of her stories will be retold again and again by myself. Thank you for making a winter evening a true pleasure, a God given talent. Hope this is the first of many "you sure didn't let the music die in you".

This book has made me really think about the way I see myself. I don't know if I can change my habit of beating myself up but I am going to try!!

As a community nurse i could relate to so much of what zoe has written and it was so moving to have someone with her talents put into words the honoured and privileged position we find ourselves in on a daily basis.

The emphasis on looking after oneself as a nurse so that we maybe able to look after our patients and families is one of the numerous message that all nurses new and old should take away from this book.

Thanks Zoe hoping there will be more.

I respect the author, Zoe, who described various events and people she met with openness, honestly, caring and with a very caring nature, hence the rating.

I think the ending chapter summed up a subject we should all try to have and do; in my opinion it was beautiful.

I would recommend people of all ages to read this book as it was also humorous, touching with empathy and a great in site to District Nursing. Great book, very enjoyable.

This is a very touching book, one that made me feel I was living side by side with Zoe and all of those lucky enough to be in her care during a crucial period of their lives. I want to be cared for by Zoe at the end of my days. She has a unique blend of love, joy, gratitude, reflection, poise and more, and shares her learnings about what matters most with generosity and humour.

As a former District Nurse and a current Palliative Care Nurse in the community, I could relate to every chapter. Zoe has written from heart, once a District Nurse always a District Nurse it gets into your soul, being part of a patients home and family is a real privilege. Thanks Zoe for reminding me of how fortunate I am to do the work that I do.
