Registered users of nursingtimes.net can win a copy of The Nightingale Girls
The Nightingale Girls is the first in a series of novels following the lives and loves of three girls who sign up in 1936 as nurses in the East End.
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.
Perfect for fans of Call the Midwife, this utterly delightful novel brings a London pre-war hospital vividly to life.
