A gritty nursing saga from a debut author set between Liverpool and the Crimea.
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.
Deftly written . . . a moving account of loss, as well as self-discovery and achievement * Woman's Own *
