A warm and engrossing novel about three young student nurses at St Angelus Hospital in Liverpool during the early 1960s.

Synopsis

The Angels of Lovely Lane by Nadine Dorries

It is 1953 and five very different girls are arriving at the nurses' home in Lovely Lane, Liverpool, to start their training at St Angelus Hospital. Dana has escaped from her family farm on the west coast of Ireland. Victoria is running away from a debt-ridden aristocratic background. Beth is an army brat and throws her lot in with bitchy Celia Forsyth. And Pammy has come from quite the wrong side of the tracks in Liverpool. The world in which they now find themselves is complicated and hierarchical, with rules that must be obeyed. Everyone has their place at St Angelus and woe betide anyone who strays from it. But when an unknown girl is admitted, after a botched late abortion in a backstreet kitchen, a tragedy begins to unfold which will rock the world of St Angelus to its foundations.

Reviews

About the Author

Nadine Dorries

Nadine Dorries was born and raised on a council estate in Liverpool in the 1950s and 60s, the dawn of the Mersey beat. Her family were part of a close-knit Irish Catholic community, most of whom came to work on the docks of Merseyside from rural Ireland. Nadine trained as a nurse, working in hospitals in Warrington and Liverpool. After qualifying she moved to Zambia for a year and ran a school for local children. On her return to the UK, she founded, ran and sold her own business, Company Kids Ltd, which provided childcare services for working parents.

Determined to give something back, Nadine entered politics. In the 2005 general elections she was elected as the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, a position she continues to hold nine years later. One of the most well-known politicians working in Britain, she is renowned for her determination to push her chosen causes to the top of the political agenda. She created a political storm when she described Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne as ‘two arrogant posh boys’. In 2012 she was a star of ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’.

A successful businesswoman and passionate Member of Parliament, in 2013 Nadine achieved another life long ambition and wrote her debut novel. The Four Streets is the first in series, and Nadine is currently working on the second book, to be published in December 2014.
