Welcome to the district nurses' home on Steeple Street, where everyone has a secret....
Ambitious young nurse Agnes Sheridan had a promising future ahead of her until a tragic mistake cost her the love and respect of everyone around her. Now she has come to Leeds for a fresh start as a trainee district nurse. But Agnes finds herself facing unexpected challenges as she is assigned to Quarry Hill, one of the city's most notorious slums.
Before she can redeem herself in the eyes of her family, she must first win the trust and respect of her patients and fellow nurses. Does Agnes have what it takes to stay the distance? Or will the tragedy of her past catch up with her?

Following the lives of trainee district nurses, their oddly varied patients and family rivalries plus unexpected pregnancies. This is a fairly easy to listen to story, well narrated and very touching at times, and I would recommend it.
"Another great book."
If you like other books by Donna Douglas you won't be disappointed. Such a great story.
"District nursing between 2 World Wars"
I enjoyed this book. But felt that it ended before it should have. An insight into nursing care between 2 World Wars. When patients were nursed with care and thoughtfulness, not just a number like they are in 2016.
"BAD BAD LEEDS ACCENT"
I loved the story of the book but found it hard to listen to due to the terrible accent people from Leeds don't speak like this its over exaggerated and cringe worthy. May not bother others but been from Leeds/Yorkshire myself i found i couldn't take the story in properly due to this.
the nurses of lovely lane/call the midwife series
Not if the accents are as bad as this performance!!
"a excellent book"
a very good story of what nursing is really like in those days .
the one when she tells the Dr that he is a bad one.
it made me cry
I am now looking for more of her books Brilliant
"the nurses of steeple street"
this was a very good book .it had lots of different story to tell and it kept you wanting more.
I enjoyed Donna Douglas' Nightingale series, but I think I liked this story even better. The fresh set of characters provided a good mix and I found all the main story lines engaging. The plot was fairly predictable, but there were a few good twists. As always, Penelope Freeman read the story beautifully.
I love Donna Douglas's stories and Penelope Freeman is. fatantic narrator. Can't wait for the next installment.
"loved it just like call the midwife, Cathy skely "
if you liked call the midwife series you will love this. i got all my work done whilst listening to the book cathy skely brill
