9780099569350: The Nightingale Girls: (Nightingales 1)

Three very different girls sign up as student nurses in 1936, while England is still mourning the death of George V. Dora is a tough East Ender, driven by ambition, but also desperate to escape her squalid, overcrowded home and her abusive stepfather. Helen is the quiet one, a mystery to her fellow nurses, avoiding fun, gossip and the limelight. In fact she is in the formidable shadow of her overbearing mother, who dominates every aspect of her life. Can a nursing career free Helen at last? The third of our heroines is naughty, rebellious Millie an aristocrat on the run from her conventional upper class life. She is doomed to clash over and over again with terrifying Sister Hyde and to get into scrape after scrape especially where men are concerned.

This utterly delightful novel brings a London pre-war hospital vividly to 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
