It is 1953, and five girls are arriving to start their training at St Angelus Hospital. Dana has escaped from her family farm in Ireland. Victoria is running away from an aristocratic background. Beth is an army brat and throws her lot in with bitchy Celia Forsyth, and Pammy has come from the wrong side of the tracks.
When an unknown girl is admitted after a botched backstreet abortion, a tragedy begins to unfold which will rock the world of St Angelus to its foundations.
"As heart-warming as it is heart-breaking, this novel is unputdownable." (The Sunday Express)

Nurses soap opera
- Ruth Bain "RueRue"
GREAT story and good depiction of the time era
It might lose something in print. The readers were great
I could really identify with characters and era since it was the same year I went off to Nursing School. It really ook me back and the author captured the time and events well.
Things have changed so much since that time it was one of he books you laughed and cried with and for the characters.
The feeling of really being in the time
Donna, she was so honest and forthcoming
I hope to see more of her books soon.
