London, 1945 and as the end of the war is declared and the troops start returning home, the nurses of the East End are joining in the celebrations.
For Nurse Connie Byrne the end of the war signals the beginning of a new chapter and as the revelries go on around the city, Connie’s mind is on another celebration that she’ll be able to arrange – the wedding to her sweetheart, Charlie, set to take place as soon as he arrives home. But when Connie meets Charlie off the train at London Bridge, she finds that his homecoming isn’t quite going to go according to plan…
Connie’s busy professional life, and the larger-than-life patients in the district, offer a welcome distraction, but for how long? If nursing in the East End has taught Connie anything, it’s that life is full of surprises.
I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of this book from Jean herself. I must say a big thank you as it is such a wonderful book. I only recently got into reading books about the war. This book is centered around the nurses in 1945, all the nurses have their own lives as well as their nursing lives so you get to find out more about them. I love the way Jean has gone into every tiny detail of the age in which the book is written. It gives you a pretty good idea of how times have changed and what must it of been like in those days. If you liked Call the Midwife, then you are sure to love this book. I would love to read the other books that Jean has written as I just couldn’t put this one down.
