Publisher's Summary

It's the final year of training for three young nurses at The Nightingale Hospital. Helen is at a crossroads in her life as she battles with her domineering mother over both her love life and her future career. Dora can't stop loving Nick, who is married to her best friend, Ruby. Millie is anxious about her fiancé, sent to Spain to cover the Civil War, and things only get worse when she encounters a fortune teller who gives her a sinister warning.

With war looming in Europe, and the East End of London squaring up to the threat of Oswald Mosley's blackshirts, the women of the Nightingale have to face their own challenges, at work and in love.

    "Somewhat disappointing"

    I found the differences in Joe between the 2nd and 3rd books to be somewhat unbelievable. But I enjoyed the book nevertheless.

    "Still interested, but a bit disappointed"

    This one isn't as light hearted as the other two-a beloved character passes away and others from the previous books are rarely seen. I didn't like the way two characters developed. Tom Armstrong goes from a guilt ridden, concerned older brother to a bully and Helen's mother is suddenly a protective loving mother after her history is reveled while for two books and a half books she has been a cold, cruel, manipulate and overbearing witch. I don't like it when characters make such a drastic change. I'm still going to listen to the next one though-

    Story
    "a totally wonderful listen.."
    What made the experience of listening to The Nightingale Nurses the most enjoyable?

    The story was addictive as I followed each nurse as they not only dealt with life on the wards but also their personal lives had me gripped. This is the third book in this fantastic series and the nurses who we met in the first book are coming to the end of their training it was thrilling to learn about what life was like back then for not only the nurses on the wards but the many different treatments which they firmly believed in along with the hero worshipping of the doctors was so fascinating and totally unbelievable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dora was my favourite as she had so much to deal with at home, my heart ached for her - yet her love for being a nurse kept her going as she deals with the Sisters who ran the wards yet she would have done anything to ease a patient's pain.


    What about Penelope Freeman’s performance did you like?

    Penelope Freeman is now one of my favourite narrator - I could sit and listen to her narrating the phone book as with her vivid ear for accents and characters she acted out she separate character by changing her tone of voice and she did it so well I felt she did so well I was sitting on the side-lines watching a play taking place.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Thrilling yet heart-wrenching throughout...


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this series of books in audio, and even though I have previously read the series the audio opened up this series in a new and very engaging way.

    "Well written and an engaging story"

    I found the nightingale stories really addictive to listen too. Donna Douglas writes really well and the narration by Penelope Freeman is the best I ever listened to. She's really adept at changing her voice to suit different characters.

    She had a great way of bringing the characters to life with her different voices and keeping you hooked to the book.

    "Excellent performance"

    A lovely story and the narrator brings the characters to life once again. Obviously, read the first 2 books before this one, I can wait for the next book.
