Publisher's Summary

A Christmas short story from Sunday Times best seller Nadine Dorries.

1950s Liverpool.

Christmas is one of the most harrowing times of year for the nurses of St Angelus Hospital.   

The Matron takes on Tilly, a new clerk, to ease the load in the busy festive period. Tilly is bright and hardworking, but she is keeping a secret from her colleagues. Everyday Tilly makes a heartbreaking decision - but she has no other choice.   

If Matron - with her traditional values and strict discipline - learnt the truth about her new clerk, Tilly's career would be ruined.   

Could Matron ever forgive the deceit?

Lovely.....

short story very nice to hear about some of the old characters from previous books. Even though so the narrator was the author by using different voices to some of the characters instead of just reading it.

A nice quick story

Although I am an avid fan of Nadine Dorries and this is one of the ‘angels’ stories that I so enjoyed reading, but this one was a bit predictable and cheesy.
I also think nadine should stick to the writing and let a professional actress do the narration in future, sorry 😐

Disappointed!

I know this was only a short story but it was so predictable and a bit schmaltzy. Won't stop me reading any more from ND.
