Publisher's Summary

It's the final year of training for three young nurses at The Nightingale Hospital. Helen is at a crossroads in her life as she battles with her domineering mother over both her love life and her future career. Dora can't stop loving Nick, who is married to her best friend, Ruby. Millie is anxious about her fiancé, sent to Spain to cover the Civil War, and things only get worse when she encounters a fortune teller who gives her a sinister warning.

With war looming in Europe, and the East End of London squaring up to the threat of Oswald Mosley's blackshirts, the women of the Nightingale have to face their own challenges, at work and in love.

    Story
    "Still interested, but a bit disappointed"

    This one isn't as light hearted as the other two-a beloved character passes away and others from the previous books are rarely seen. I didn't like the way two characters developed. Tom Armstrong goes from a guilt ridden, concerned older brother to a bully and Helen's mother is suddenly a protective loving mother after her history is reveled while for two books and a half books she has been a cold, cruel, manipulate and overbearing witch. I don't like it when characters make such a drastic change. I'm still going to listen to the next one though-

    "Well written and an engaging story"

    I found the nightingale stories really addictive to listen too. Donna Douglas writes really well and the narration by Penelope Freeman is the best I ever listened to. She's really adept at changing her voice to suit different characters.

    "A Heart Puller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if you would like to be totally hooked and listen to this in one sitting, my emotions were tugged in all directions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Charlie he made some tough decisions before he died on more than one occasion.


    What does Penelope Freeman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She had a great way of bringing the characters to life with her different voices and keeping you hooked to the book.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me cry on more than one occasion, it had a very emotional storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic book

    "Excellent performance"

    A lovely story and the narrator brings the characters to life once again. Obviously, read the first 2 books before this one, I can wait for the next book.
