Call Nurse Millie by Jean Fullerton book launch and review

Call Nurse MillieCall Nurse Millie by Jean Fullerton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was lucky enough to be able to read a pre-published copy sent to me by Jean; 1945 and fresh out of the war torn years, we follow Millie a qualified District Nurse and mid wife while she takes her skills on to the streets of East End London, where rationing still exits, people pay for health care and friends and neighbours rally round when it really counts. If you love post war British history when everyone is recovering and getting themselves back on their feet and the way a community pulls together in times of strife, mixed with a little romance, then this is a book for you.
Jean will be taking part in an interview on Tuesday 21st May on BBC Radio Essex at 2.20pm combined with an on-line launch on the 22rd. She is also running a giveaway on Goodreads…
