St. Edith's has served the local community for 150 years, but is under threat of being swallowed up by the more glamorous and modern Thorpedale General. How will this affect the people who work and are cared for there? Thirty-four year old Chrissy Galloway decides to return to the nursing profession, her home town and St. Edith's but her return is full of complications she had not foreseen. Mo Fordham is an old school friend of Chrissy's whose marriage is faltering and she suspects her husband is having an affair. At this vulnerable moment, she finds a lump in her breast. Glynis Tillman is the Nursing Manager of St. Edith's. Having devoted her life to the profession she is reaching a crossroads. Chronicling the lives and loves of a group of doctors, nurses and patients, Anita Burgh weaves a rich and wonderful tapestry creating characters who make you laugh and cry, and who keep you turning the pages far into the night.show more
