Nadine Dorries returns to her roots and draws on her own nursing experience with this warm and engrossing novel about three young student nurses at St Angelus Hospital in Liverpool during the early 1960s. Dana escaped the back-breaking tedium of life as a farmers daughter in Mayo on the west coast of Ireland. But now another trap looms. Millie has never known what it is like to call somewhere home. As an army brat, she has learnt to survive on her wits. But St Angelus will present her with some problems even she cannot solve. Pammy is Liverpool born and bred. Of the three, she is the wild one. She will never give up on a friend or a patient, but her daring might be her downfall.
