Synopsis

All Change for Nurse Millie by Jean Fullerton

Nurse Millie Sullivan is now Nurse Millie Smith, having married aspiring MP Jim Smith. The war has ended and the NHS has just come into action, so the nurses are busier than ever as the community realise that they no longer have to pay for the services. Minor ailments need attention, babies need to be helped into the world and some of the larger-than-life characters need keeping in line so Millie has enough drama to deal with without having to deal with more from home...and Alex Nolan, her ex-fiance, is back in town.

Reviews

Enjoy CALL THE MIDWIFE? Then you'll love this... A beautifully written sequel that gives you a fab insight into the life of a nurse in London's East End in the '40s. * CLOSER * Plot strands are drawn together and resolved masterfully as she and Alex re-establish their friendship. Millie's admirable, turbulent story is packed with evocative post-war details and is fast-paced, plausible, and highly engaging, though the complexities of the issues covered lend the story a darker, serious tone. Highly recommended. * HISTORICAL NOVELIST SOCIETY * An enjoyable story depicting the hardship of post-war Britain * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS *
