    In Jennifer Craig's enchanting memoir, we meet these warm-hearted yet naïve young girls as they get to grips with strict discipline, long hours and bodily fluids. But we also see the camaraderie that develops in evening study sessions, sneaked trips to the cinema and mischievous escapades with the young trainee doctors. The harsh conditions prove too much for some girls, but the opportunity to help her patients in their time of need is too much of a pull for Jenny.

    Story

    I was hesitant to try this audio book at first because I was worried that my Tennessee ears would have a hard time understanding a Yorkshire accent haha. Her Northern accent isn't too thick & I didn't have any trouble understanding Jennifer Craig. I found her voice comforting and easy to listen to.

    The book details her training as a nurse in the 1950s in England and it might not be for everyone. It's a quiet book full of details about her duties in the hospital, & her fellow nurses-in-training.

    If that sounds like something you'd enjoy (and I did) I wouldn't hesitate to give this a listen.
