Summary

It's Christmas 1941, and the nurses at the Nightingale are facing their toughest winter yet. With shortages everywhere and every news bulletin announcing more losses, the British people are weary and demoralised, and The Nightingale Hospital is suffering too.

Millie is recently widowed and dealing with the demands of her family's estate. It's not long before her old world of the Nightingale begins to beckon, along with a long-lost love....

Jess is struggling with her move from East London to the countryside. Effie finds herself exiled to a quiet village, but the quiet doesn't last for long as she soon finds excitement in the shape of a smooth-talking GI. As Christmas approaches, even the shelter of the countryside can't protect the girls from heartache.

Hidden gem

I don’t know how I stumbled on this series but all are so great. This was/is my favorite so far! Listening to Penelope Freeman is like music…voice like butter. She is amazing with all the accents and character building and has truly made these books come to life. The stories are fiction but real history and the setting is England WW1 and 2, hospitals, families, friends and foes. I love the interactions, relationship building, cute and funny characters. Great book!
