Nurse Kitty's Secret War

Nurse Kitty's Secret War

‘A galloping read that conjures up life in a late 1940s hospital, complete with fierce matrons and handsome doctors. Nurse Kitty is a feisty heroine who sticks her neck out to protect her patients, while trying to resolve her own family problems and heal her broken heart. It’s engaging and atmospheric.’ Gill Paul

A sweeping saga inspired by the brave nurses and doctors from the first NHS hospital, Park Hospital, now the Trafford General, which opened after the end of World War II

It’s May 1945 and at 3pm, Nurse Kitty Longthorne listens to Winston Churchill’s broadcast on the radio. Germany has signed a declaration of complete surrender. The mood in Park Hospital – still full of wounded American soldiers – is jubilant and hopeful, though the Longthorne family is anything but.

Kitty’s twin brother Ned is still missing in action, her mother is gravely ill and her father is struggling to stay on the right side of the law. The man she hopes to marry, the respected Dr James Williams, has become distant. He’s busy campaigning for the future of Park Hospital, and working closely with Nurse Violet whose privileged background matches his own – too close for Kitty’s liking.

Caring for the patients brings untold challenges for Kitty. With a family that continually throws obstacles in her way, and a career that’s a mountain she may never be able to climb, will she have the strength to find her own happy ending?

I'm sure readers will love Nurse Kitty as she struggles to find true love when everything is going against it. I loved the end-of-WW2 setting, which is vividly imagined, and the sheer energy of Maggie Campbell's pacy prose. A perfect escapist read.
