3.0 out of 5 stars False pretences, 6 May 2013
This review is from: Matron on Call: More true stories of a 1960s NHS nurse (Paperback)
Picked this up being interested in the 60's but noted on the introduction page that she didn't qualify until 1971 and didn't record it until the 80's
There is a significant difference in these decades. Still interesting and enjoyable but title misleading.

Thank you Ian for your comments. Matron On Call was my second book, the first being Matron Knows Best. The first book covered my whole career starting as a cadet in 1966, under the old fashioned matron system, and ending on 1st January 2008. The title of book 2, Matron On Call, was recommended to me by my editor to keep within the theme of old fashioned nursing. I am sorry if you were mislead but hope you will perhaps read book one and enjoy it.

Reading it as the first book did give rise to initial disappointment. But the book was enjoyable and a good read for both my wife and myself.
Perhaps your publisher should provide a wider description of all your books.
It is a common problem with books or stories moving on from each other, but not knowing which order to read them in.
I!ll give the next book a decent rating
Ian
