Once again Donna Douglas has produced a warm and quite captivating story featuring Helen, Dora and Millie; three student nurses who are from very different backgrounds but have found themselves living and working together for the past three years.
It is the final year of what has been three incredibly tough years, both professionally and personally for each of the girls. Helen is still dealing with her overbearing Mother, a woman who cannot help but interfere in Helen's life. Dora is distraught, her one true love is now married to her best friend and Millie is worried about her reporter boyfriend Seb who is overseas covering war stories.
The detail in this story is excellent, from the fashion, to the workings of a hospital to the political tensions caused by Moseley's 'Blackshirts' - the reader is firmly thrust into this changing world which is brought to life quite brilliantly.
I have really enjoyed the development of the characters in the Nightingale series, not just the three leading nurses, but the supporting cast has grown too. It is probably Helen's mother who is the surprise of this story, still domineering and still obnoxious, but her past is gradually revealed to the reader which adds another dimension to both her character and the plot line.
Drama, love, laughter and many tears. A finely tuned plot and some larger than life characters. The Nightingale Nurse is a fine addition to the series and is my favourite so far. I do hope that Donna Douglas will be writing more about the girls, I'm really keen to know where they go next.
She is now reading more books than ever before as she finds the format very friendly.
Being a Nurse she has some similar experiences of her own - but loves to read of the drams and difficulties faced by colleagues in tougher times.
She enjoyed this very much but never writes a proper review.
As I paid for them - I am!
In fact, I like to read when I go to bed and found I was going to bed earlier and earlier just so I could spend more time reading without having a late night!
This book did not disappoint and picked up from where the previous story concluded.
I would recommend these series of novels to anyone who enjoys a story set in the 1930s and gradually into the War Time era. They would also appeal to anyone who enjoys the BBC series "Call the Midwife".
A great read from a consistently creative author. 10/10
This was another brilliant read by Donna Douglas who certainly knows the history of the Nightingale Hospital in London and how the nursing profession was so different from todays NHS nursing system. This is one book which had it all within the pages which included every emotion and a fantastic storyline which kept me hooked throughout.
If you have followed this series of books you already know how good they are and I have to say in my own personal opinion this is one series which improves as times goes on and now I am eagerly reading the fourth book ...Read more ›
