The third of our heroines is naughty, rebellious Millie an aristocrat on the run from her conventional upper class life.

Review:

"A gripping coming-of-age drama about life and love on the wards of a pre-war London hospital." ( Weightwatchers Magazine)

"A touching novel...reminiscent of Call The Midwife" ( Star Magazine)

"Excellent characters...absorbing story...I look forward to the next instalment in the lives of these interesting women." ( Bookersatz)

"Fans of Call the Midwife will enjoy this" ( Woman's Own)

"

With some nice romantic elements and sub-plots that are ripe for development in future, this is a great start to a new series of books and I’m already looking forward to The Nightingale Sisters

4/5
