Publisher's Summary

The new heartwarming and nostalgic story in the best-selling wartime District Nurses series! 

For the district nurses of Victory Walk, there's been little time to bask in the triumph of D-day as London is facing a new threat - the buzz bombs. Everyone is terrified, never knowing where the next one will strike. Into this tense atmosphere, new nurse Iris must make her mark. She’s had more experience of nursing than many, but since arriving in East London from the countryside, she has struggled to fit in with the other staff.

Meanwhile, Alice is facing an agonising wait to hear if her boyfriend, Joe, has survived D-day - she can barely sleep for wondering if he ever received her letter in which she promised to wait for him. Others, too, are in limbo, not knowing if their loved ones have made it through. With the end almost in sight, the district nurses must dig deep if they are to keep London going....

Critic Reviews

"An engrossing story." (My Weekly)

"A stirring and heartrending family saga.... Against a backdrop of change when the suffragette movement was coming to the fore, the choices and dreams of a generation of women combine to create this passionate story." (Liverpool Daily Post)

"Heartwrenching and uplifting in equal measure - a tragic indictment of what can happen when you swap passion for duty. Roll on the sequel!" (Take a Break)

Off now to see if there are any more in this series!!! Or perhaps I'll try other titles by Annie Groves, to see how they compare!!
