The new Nightingales Christmas novel from the Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of A Nightingale Christmas Wish. Set during the Second World War.
Christmas 1941 and the nurses at the Nightingale are facing their toughest winter yet.
With shortages everywhere, and every news bulletin announcing more defeats and losses, the British people are weary and demoralised and The Nightingale Hospital is suffering too.
Millie is recently widowed and dealing with the demands of her family’s estate. It’s not long before her old world of The Nightingale begins to beckon, along with a long-lost love…
Jess is struggling with her move from East London to the quiet of the countryside.
Effie finds herself exiled to a quiet village, but the quiet doesn’t last for long as she soon finds excitement in the shape of a smooth-talking GI.
As Christmas approaches, even the shelter of the countryside can’t protect the girls from heartache.
“It was a perfect winter read as I sat in front of a roaring fire, mug of tea and a box of choccies to hand. I was soon deep in the world of nurses and country living. The characters are likeable and realistic and the author strikes a perfect balance between the hard, grudging work that nurses do and the camaraderie that comes from pulling together. It doesn’t shy away from the awfulness of war but deals with it in a way that’s informative without being too upsetting and certainly made me wonder at the bravery of people during those trying times. That said there is humour and warmth on every page.”
“Written in a heart-warming and easy-going style, it is a perfect book to curl up with on a winter’s afternoon.”
