Description of this Book

FOLLOWING ON FROM KATE EASTHAM'S DEBUT THE NIGHTINGALE NURSES Liverpool 1867. Stella works in a brothel near the docks, but when one of her regular customers falls ill her life changes forever. She is forced to take him to the Liverpool Royal Infirmary, leaving him propped against a pillar on the steps of the brand new Nurses' Home and Training school. Sneaking in to visit one day Maud meets Ada Huston, Assistant Superintendent nurse, who persuades her to take a chance on herself, for once, and train to become a nurse. Maud is about to learn that she is capable of so much more than she ever believed - of making a difference, of helping those in need and of living a life she is proud of.

Author's Bio

Kate Eastham trained as a nurse and midwife on the Nightingale wards of Preston Royal Infirmary. She has well over thirty years of experience working in hospital, residential and hospice care. Born and bred in Lancashire, she is married with three grown-up children and one grandchild. Always reading, she went on to gain a degree in English Literature and was inspired to write after researching the history of nursing and her own family history, with its roots in Liverpool, northern mill towns and rural Lancashire.
