Description

'A delightful, well researched story that really does depict nursing and the living conditions in the East End at the end of the war' Lesley Pearse on Call Nurse Millie

London, 1948 and the nurses of the East End are getting ready for an eventful time ahead...

Millie is settling into married life with her husband, MP Jim Smith, and is trying to balance her duties as a wife with her nursing duties to the people of the East End.

Swept up in the expectations that go hand in hand with Jim's blossoming political career, Millie begins to wonder how much longer she'll be able to continue in the job she loves. Her patients need a nurse and midwife, but who needs Millie more? And in the end, will the decision even be hers to make?

When a familiar face from the past makes an appearance, and shady secrets from her home life come to light, it's all change for Nurse Millie. But will she get the happy ending that she deserves?

'Charming and full of detail about the work of a nurse in 1940s London, you will ride emotional highs and lows with each new birth and death. Beautifully written with some sharp dialogue' The Lady

Review quote

"An enjoyable story depicting the hardship of post-war Britain" * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS * Plot strands are drawn together and resolved masterfully as she and Alex re-establish their friendship. Millie's admirable, turbulent story is packed with evocative post-war details and is fast-paced, plausible, and highly engaging, though the complexities of the issues covered lend the story a darker, serious tone. Highly recommended. * HISTORICAL NOVELIST SOCIETY * Enjoy CALL THE MIDWIFE? Then you'll love this... A beautifully written sequel that gives you a fab insight into the life of a nurse in London's East End in the '40s. * CLOSER *
