It’s 1948 and the nurses of the East End of London are making the most of life post-war. For Connie in particular, things are looking rosy as she looks forward to planning a future with her sweetheart, Malcolm. But, as many a young bride-to-be has proved, the course of true love never did run smooth and Connie finds herself having to grapple with interfering mothers and Malcolm’s reluctance to set the date.
But while there are many obstacles to overcome before walking down the aisle, at least Connie can relax in the knowledge that she’ll soon be married to the man of her dreams, can’t she?
Life at work isn’t all smooth sailing either. The newly-formed NHS is keeping the nurses of Fry House extremely busy and as ever in the life of a nurse heartbreak lurks at every turn. But there are some new faces to keep things interesting. And one in particular might be the answer to all of Connie’s problems..
This is the one of the books from the Nurse Connie series, it can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading them from the start. I was given this book from Jean the author herself which was such a lovely thing to do. I always find with Jean’s books that they take me longer to read which is not a bad thing, it is just there is some really good information that I want to absorb in and I am fascinated with what life was like in those days. There is a bit of sadness, humour and a romance in this story which will keep you hooked until the end, was sad when I had read the last page but I will definitely be looking forward to the next one.
