Publisher's Summary

To the student nurses at The Nightingale hospital, the ward sisters are heartless and frightening, with impossibly high standards. But the sisters have troubles of their own...

Dora, the student nurse is struggling with her heartbreak over Nick, the man who got away. A new arrival on the ward brings the chance to put a smile back on her face. But can she really get over Nick so easily?

Dora's fellow student Millie is also torn between the two men in her life. But then an unexpected friendship with an elderly patient makes her question where her heart really lies.

I have loved reading the series!

All of the characters are real and entertaining! The storyline is intriguing and very interesting for each of the characters. Being a nurse myself, I have enjoyed seeing how the nurses of the 1930s were trained. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

Throughly enjoyed the second book in this series.

I so enjoyed following the stories of the Nightingale girls as they worked through their second year of nursing school. The author's attention to the field of nursing and historical detail is engaging. She is a wonderful story teller. I will order the third in the series. Also the actress who performs in the Audible book is marvelous.

I LOVE this series!!

I liked this one better than the first and bought the third before I'd finished this one. I like the characters and I like how the stories unfold-I do believe Violet is a better person than myself. I don't believe I would have made the choices she made.

Lovely book with a great narrator

The narrator is great. She puts on brilliant voices that really bring the characters to life. The story is good, can't wait to listen to the next installment.
