Dora and her old enemy Lucy are paired up on the children’s ward for the final three months of their training. The two nurses couldn’t seem more different, but they may have more in common than they think, as each hides a secret heartache.
Jess is the feisty eldest daughter of a notorious East End family and determined to prove herself as a ward maid.
And new trainee nurse Effie can’t wait to escape her small Irish village, and make her way as a nurse in London. But Effie’s sister Katie soon begins to worry that Effie’s behaviour is out of control.

A lovely follow-on from ‘The Nightingale Nurses’. It was great to catch up with the characters and to find out how hard life was for the nurses in Pre-war Britain. I loved it!!! Once again a brilliant story, obviously well researched. Looking forward to the next one.
