Nurse Millie is newly married to Jim who is running a campaign to become local MP in their London Constituancy. Starting a family is on hold, which does not worry Millie as she is dedicated to her nursing career.
As Jim's campaign gains momentum, he pushes Millie to give up her career as a nurse, but as Jim is not quite the doting husband, Millie has some big decisions to make.
The author, who has nursing experience, goes into some great detail about life as a district nurse in the East End of London just as big changes are happening with the introduction of the NHS. It was fascinating reading about the changes from the nursing point of view. A great insight into social history in England post WW2.
Oh my goodness, this is such a good read. Although the blurb says that this is a sequel, it can easily be read as a stand alone, or you could read this first and then Call Nurse Millie as the prequel. This will appeal to fans of Call the Midwife and historical romance fans.
