The author was an NHS nurse for twenty years. Her account takes the reader through the different departments she worked in and how the nursing profession is defined by kindness.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Sent as a surprise book to a bookcrosser.
Thank you so much for this surprise RABCK, it looks like just the sort of book I read. I will do my best to to get it moving again as soon as I can.
I think the author was very courageous to write this candid memoir of her time nursing. I loved that she peppered the narration with medical references from global ancient texts to modern day studies. It’s pretty frightening reading, at times harrowing, sometimes even uplifting but always honest and so thought provoking! I gasped and cried my way throughout. I have an even deeper respect for nurses now. Their pay and working conditions are inhuman.
Sending this Bonus Booky Compensation in a RABCK package for a fellow BookCrosser. I’ve been delayed by life in sending out my half of a book swap and spotted this on her wish list. Happy reading.
Received in the post as an act of kindness from a fellow Bookcrossing user who spotted this on my wishlist - thank you! :)
