In the 1949, Staff Nurse Georgie Edwards won herself a place at St Bartholomew’s to train as a doctor. Her work also took her to Whipps Cross and to a Hackney GP’s surgery. Her time as a nurse convinced her to become the kind of doctor who always listened to her patients.
This is such a fascinating and warm book, one I acquired at Ebury and which is published today. Georgie’s memoir really is the best medicine!
First, congratulations to Kerry Needham’s Ben, which is now a Sunday Times bestseller!
Also, happy publication day to Esther W. for her book If Only I Had Told – a harrowing memoir of being at the centre of Orkney’s satanic sexual abuse scandal back in 1991. Esther is an amazingly brave woman.
Congratulations to Kerry Needham on the publication of her extraordinary memoir Ben. About her son who went missing on the Greek island of Kos 22 years ago, and Kerry’s relentless search, I truly hope it makes a difference.
Two great – and very different – books published just before Christmas and well worth a read.
Evelyn Prentis’s Matron in Charge, about her years nursing in the Lodge, a home for elderly women of reduced circumstances. The fifth and final book in the series from this Sunday Times bestselling author.
