West Yorkshire, 1926. After completing her training in Steeple Street, Agnes Sheridan is looking forward to making her mark as Bowden’s first district nurse, confident she can make a difference in the locals’ lives.
But when Agnes arrives, she’s treated with suspicion, labelled just another servant of the wealthy mine owners. The locals would much rather place their trust in the resident healer – Hannah Arkwright.
And when the General Strike throws the village into turmoil, the miners and their families face hunger and hardship, and Agnes finds her loyalties tested.
Now it’s time to prove whose side she is really on and to fight for her place in the village . . .

District Nurse On Call – A wonderful story of a district nurse. Set in 1926 you realise the hardships faced by the mining village of that time and the disasters that occured. Agnes Sheridan had a hard battle to be accepted by these people who preferred the healings of Hannah Arkwright. Fortunately she was a very determined young woman who wasn’t going to give up on these people. It was nice getting to know the villagers and reading their stories.
The Author. Donna Douglas. Yet another very good story from this author. Her descriptions of the places and the people give you a great picture of the time.
