Publisher's Summary

The nurses of St Angelus Hospital face the hardship of another winter in this heartbreaking story by million-copy best seller Nadine Dorries.

In 1950s Liverpool, five very different girls begin their training at St Angelus Hospital, in Lovely Lane. The nurses are known locally as the Angels. They are Dana, Victoria, Beth, Celia and Pammy, and at St Angelus they learn quickly about life in all its richness and its sorrow. The Angels must battle through the snow to save Victoria's baby, and young doctor Teddy Davenport begins to make some serious mistakes.... 

Touching, heartbreaking and often humorous, too, this great series is a rich tapestry about poverty, sacrifice and community spirit, set in postwar Liverpool in the early days of the NHS.

Frustrated

I LOVE this series. The characters are amazing and well developed. This particular book, however, frustrated me. It felt rushed. Also, why would you change the name of a person in the 5th book of the series? Maisie Tanner has suddenly become Mavis Tanner. It took me off guard and I was racking my brain trying to figure out who Mavis Tanner was in the beginning of the book. It was hugely distracting and took away from the listening pleasure.
I love the addition of Mrs. Gaskell, but her story also felt a bit rushed. I don't know if the author had a deadline and just threw something together, but this book wasn't up to the usual standard. I look forward to the next book in the series and hope the author puts more time and care into it. This book is okay, but Ms. Dorries has done better in previous books and I know the next one will be up to her usual standard of exceptional.

So many mistakes

So disappointed with this book , I loved the other books in this series and couldn’t wait for this one but it’s wrong on so many levels , Masie Tanner has become Mavis , Baby louse was said to have been about 6 months in the previous book but a year later in the story he still can’t walk or talk , Teddy had his sordid affair before his accident not as a result of trauma caused by the accident, I feel cheated and although I wanted to know what had happened to the characters in this series I wish I hadn’t bothered. Surely a seasoned write like Nadine Dorries should be able keep track with what she has previously written

Snow angels

I think this is the last in the series although I wished it wasn't, I've listened to all 5 books and this author can not put a foot wrong I absolutely love theses stories. It's nice that the narrator Georgia Maguire has told all 5 books the only criticism I have is I think she gets too near the mic occasionally and it makes it uncomfortable to listen to in places.

Mixed Feelings

I have absolutely loved the St Angelus books and have even bought extra credits because I couldn't wait to get the next episode. This book drove me to distraction! Had I read the reviews mentioning the Maisie/Mavis debacle before purchasing it, I probably would have skipped it. Add to that the fact that Victoria has, by my estimation, been pregnant for nearly 18 months, its a little irritating! Such a shame when you become invested in characters to have it spoilt in this way. It was quite satisfying to have some loose ends tied up however. I would just advise going into this book prepared for the discrepancies.

Good...

overall with all the characters and the antics but I was disappointed when two of the characters names were changed 1 being Maisie Tanner to Mavis Tanner and the other was Anthony McIntosh to Andrew McIntosh it might be a bit trivial but on the 5th book I would have thought they would have got them correct especially as they were in the other four. books. The narrator was good.

What happened Georgia?

I have enjoyed Georgia Maguire's narration of all the Lovely Lane books, which lead me from book 1 through the whole series. But this time Anthony became 'Andrew' at least once, and Maisie became Mavis throughout, which I found to be most disappointing. Georgia captured all the accents and nuances of the characters up to now so believably, I found it hard to find that she fell down on the job on this novel. I checked the Kindle book and Maisie was written as Maisie, but was read as Mavis, so someone must have fallen down on the job if they let it get through on the audio book.

I have enjoyed this series but...

... Someone's name got changed for this last book so I spent a lot of time trying to work out who was who! Maisie becomes Mavis, I was assuming they were sisters for a long time! Anyway if you can get past that then it's as good as the others and I have enjoyed them. Easy listening.

Maisie Tanner?

Great read, but I was a little confused to begin with as Maisie Tanner’s name has been changed for some reason. Was this a mistake?
