To the student nurses at The Nightingale hospital, the ward sisters are heartless and frightening, with impossibly high standards. But the sisters have troubles of their own…
Violet
The new night sister is not all that she seems. Who is she and what dark secret is she hiding? As the mystery deepens, Sister Wren is determined to find out the truth.
Dora
The student nurse is struggling with her own secret, and with her heartbreak over Nick, the man who got away. A new arrival on the ward brings the chance to put a smile back on her face. But can she really get over Nick so easily?
Millie
Dora’s fellow student is also torn between the two men in her life. But then an unexpected friendship with an elderly patient makes her question where her heart – and her future – really lies.
As the nation mourns the death of King George V, it seems as if nothing is ever going to be the same again, especially for the women at the Nightingale.

Sissy:  Back at the beginning of June we reviewed the first book in this series, The Nightingale Girls.  Much to our delight, we were able to receive a copy of this book, number two in the series, so we just had to read it!  And recommend it to you!

Sissy (again):  Oh, you thought Bubby might chime in about how much she enjoyed the continuing saga of Dora, Helen, and Millie?  You thought she would natter on about the new nurse Violet, or wail about waspish sister Wren?  Well, you thought wrong.  Bubby is, at present, in Spain!  You heard right–Spain!  But I am not jealous.  Oh, no–I would never begrudge Bubby the opportunity to savor the sights of Seville and meander in Madrid.  And I certainly carry no envy concerning her plans to leap over to Lisbon, Portugal, and trot down to Tangier, Morocco.  I am perfectly happy to  stay here and write this blog by myself in the exciting and stimulating environs of small town America.  So, until further notice…

At any rate, The Nightingale Sisters is thoroughly enjoyable, and you will find yourself highly invested in the dramas, highs and lows, and everyday dealings of the nurses at the Nightingale hospital.  4 starched-white bubbles!

Also–Stay tuned for upcoming blogs from me and various guest bloggers in my sister’s absence.  It will be exciting!
