Publisher's Summary

As the effects of the war raging in Europe begin to be felt at home in London, Monica Dickens decides to do her bit and to pursue a new career, and so enrols as a student nurse at a hospital in rural Hertfordshire.

By nature clever and spirited, she struggles to submit to the iron rule of the Matron and Sisters, and is alternately infuriated and charmed by her patients. That’s not to mention the mountains of menial work that are a trainee’s lot. But there are friends among the staff and patients, night-time escapades to dances with dashing army men, and her secret writing project to keep her going.

    Story
    "Enjoyable listen."

    I've listened to a number of stories about Nursing during the time period, the grueling hours, the difficult co-workers the training, and this is pretty much all that you can expect and more. The writing as well-done, the heroine was engaging and the plot moved along at a brisk pace. I admit I liked it didn't get bogged down with a boring romance, this is all about nursing which was great. Other novels can get sappy with boring and unrealistic romantic plots.

    The ending is a cliff-hanger, so it made me wonder where the sequel is. Overall, engaging.

    Story
    "Who'd be a nurse?"
    If you could sum up One Pair of Feet in three words, what would they be?

    Monica Dickens, after she had tried being a reporter and a cook and written about those too .
    True, funny, poignant by turns, good picture of life in hospital during World War II.


    Would you recommend One Pair of Feet to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you liked Call the Midwife you might like this too.


    What about Carole Boyd’s performance did you like?

    Read well, no distraction from the story.


    Any additional comments?

    One Pair of Hands which preceded this is also worth listening to.
