Overview

The Nightingale Nurses: (Nightingales 3) by Donna Douglas

‘Pay attention please, nurses. The next six months will be the most important of your lives’


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. But Ruby is hiding a dark secret with the potential to destroy Ruby's marriage.

Millie is anxious about her fiance, 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.

From the author of The Nightingale Girls and The Nightingale Sisters, this is the perfect read for fans of Call the Midwife.

Book Three in the Nightingales series. The final year in the Nurses training. Helen finally stands up to her mother...now what? Marriage?, but maybe not happily ever after. Dora can't seem to get over Nick, who is married to her best friend. Millie finally commits to Seb, but will he come back from the war? A visit to a fortune telling patient gives a dire warning. Dora's brother is in deep with the anti semitic "Blackshirts". All the Nurses are looking forward to finishing school, and wondering who will win the Nightingale Medal, and with it, a job at the Hospital. Dora tries dating Joe, but her heart is just not in it. Helen finally  connects with her mother after learning the secret she had so long tried to hide. I would love to see more stories from the Nightingales!

The Nightingale Nurses by Donna Douglas is the third book in the Nightingales series. It picks up not long after the second book ended. Helen Tremayne is in her final year and studying diligently for her exams. Helen, though, does find time to out with her beau, Charlie Dawson (despite Mrs. Tremayne’s objections). Helen is looking forward to a future with Charlie after she graduates, but then Charlie becomes ill. Dora Doyle is stepping out with Officer Joe Armstrong. Dora is trying to get over Nick Riley (Ruby, her best friend, stole Nick from Dora). But is Joe the one for Dora or is his nice persona hiding something more sinister. Dora is also worried about her brother who has gotten involved with the wrong group. He is supporting the Blackshirts (Fascists). Millie is worried about her fiancé, Seb who is in Spain covering their civil war. However, classes and ward work are definitely keeping them busy. They are learning more advanced procedures and experiencing new wards (and new patients). Life is never dull at The Nightingale. The Nightingale Nurses is another delightful installment of life in 1930s London and the training it took to become a nurse (involved a lot of cleaning). The characters are like old friends and it was nice to visit them again. The Nightingale Nurses is an engaging, fast paced novel that I did not want it to end (thankfully there are more books in the series). I give The Nightingale Nurses 5 out of 5 stars. The book is well-written, and I was instantly drawn into the novel. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I received a complimentary copy of The Nightingale Nurses from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review of the novel.

I loved it , it brought me back to the 1950's as a nursing student in Birmingham England. The story was very realistic for that period. Enjoyed the whole series.
