Product description


"Throughout the memoir, Elizabeth's mother's love and determination are clearly evident. And Elizabeth's first meeting and subsequent relationship with her Nigerian barrister father make for riveting reading. Mixed Blessings is interwoven with Elizabeth's usual humour and insightfulness and I very much enjoyed reading it." Malorie Blackman OBE - writer and Children's Laureate: 2013-2015 "Mixed blessings from a Cambridge Union is a description of a difficult and turbulent life which resulted in significant achievements and a nurse who is an inspiration to so many. Elizabeth wants all nurses - but particularly those from BME backgrounds - to be inspired by her achievements in the profession that she loves. She has certainly achieved that with this book." Professor Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer - England Visiting Professor - Joint Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education Kingston University & St George's University of London "What is this spirit within a young unmarried white girl that is so strong it makes her sacrifice so much, in order to hold on to her mixed-race baby? Elizabeth's autobiography is a well-documented and easy to read story of optimism in the face of adversity. It is also an important social history of an Irish family in the UK dealing with race relations during the 1940s and 50s. This is a very thought-provoking book that is gentle in its prose and riveting in its personal journey and positive message. I highly recommend this very enjoyable memoir." Conrad Bryan - Board member of AMRI (Association of Mixed Race Irish)
