    1 thought on “Nightingales on Call”

    1. As with the other books in this series, Nightingales On Call can be read as a stand-alone novel, but having been a fan of these stories from the very first one, I'd urge readers to get hold of the other books too. Donna Douglas gives enough background information within Nightingales On Call to enable new readers to enjoy it just as much as old fans, but doesn't get too bogged down by things that happened earlier in the series.This story concentrates mainly on Dora and Lucy who are almost at the [...]

    2. As the nurses enter their final year of training, new faces appear and an old nemesis finds herself taken down a notch or two.Dora and Lucy find themselves roommates and working together on the children's ward. Still proud and arrogant, Lucy is hiding the fact that her father has lost his fortune and she and her mother are nearly destitute. Dora and Nick are working to find the money to be able to be married and the last thing Dora needs is Lucy as her roommate. But, as often happens with trial [...]

    3. I have read and enjoyed all this series. Although these books can be read individually as a stand alone, its lovely if you read them from book 1 onwards. It doesn't matter as the author gives enough background for you to pick up but you would equally miss out on some things. In MHO anyway.We have seen these sisters come through thick and thin. I can't help but admire the author for doing all her research thoroughly this has enlightened me to the past pre NHS. Imagine you on your hands and knees [...]

    4. Another great Nightingale book full of interesting characters. The only issue I have is that I would like to have heard more about Helen and Millie who featured in the first three books. And now that Dora and Millie are married, I guess they won't feature so much in the next book, although I hope that they, or their families come back as patients! Saying that, I grew to like the new characters of Effie and particularly Jess. Will be reading the next instalment soon.

    5. Love, love, loved it! Loved them all! I have read all the books in the series in order. The characters are multifaceted, the stories excellent. I have laughed out laughed out loud, cried, and shouted to the characters my outrage, support, and encouragement. I have been reading and listening to the audio versions together. The audio version is extremely well done.

    6. As expectedAgain an excellent read and will be downloading the next in series - Donna Douglas never fails to deliver with each book in this series

    7. Didn't disappointOnce again an excellent read following the lives of the nightingale nurses and the friendships they had with each other

    8. Not the best one I've read This one truly wasn't the best one of the series. Rather than continuing the storylines of the main characters from the last 3 books you got a smattering of their stories, then you have a 'let's get to know' the next group of student nurses, and characters. You then get to see what of those new people are plucky, silly, sulky, vain, or in need of a good old fashioned comeuppance. This spent more time getting the new storylines setup and less time spent finishing the on [...]

    9. Nightingales On Call is the fourth stand-alone installment in best-selling author Donna Douglas’ enchanting and enjoyable series about student nurses in a 1930s London hospital.Jess Jago has always been desperate to shake off the shackles of her family’s notorious reputation as petty criminals and make her own way in the world. Determined to prove that she is neither a liar nor a crook, Jess wants to find an honest job and be judged on her own merits and capabilities, as opposed to being tho [...]

    10. I do love the Nightingales series as a comfort read – they’re easy to read, yet entertaining and interesting. As I progress through the series, I’m amazed at the way Donna Douglas expertly weaves in new characters and brings others to the forefront. I am glad though that I’m a little late to the series, because the ending of the book almost felt like the end of the series! There was closure for several characters who have had starring roles in the books so far. However, I’m taking what [...]

    11. I think part of my fascination with this series is seeing how much health care has changed over the years. The opening hospital scene illustrates that by showing a believed teddy bear ripped from the arms of a sick child and the ward sister ordering Dora to burn it and ignore the child's crying. Then there is the strict visiting hours. Imagine only being able to see your child once a month. I can't even imagine keeping patients in the hospital that long these days they try to get you out of ther [...]

    12. I don't usually like reading a book midway through a series and Nightingales on Call is the fourth book in this series by Donna Douglas. I needn't have worried as soon as I read the first few pages I was hooked and immersed in the lives of the nurses from Nightingale Hospital.It took a brave girl to train to be a nurse in the 1930's. It was a very strict, like being in the army. The ward sisters were like dragons and the nurses terrified of putting a foot wrong. All day they scrubbed floors and [...]

    13. 4.0 out of 5 stars -- Nursing at the Nightingale Hospital circa 1937 in London's East End.The series continues in this 4th historical fiction novel and we reconnect with all our favorite characters, Millie, Dora, and Helen as they are finding more challenges in their professional and personal lives. Millie and Dora are finishing up their training while recently widowed Helen has moved to staff nursing. The ward sisters continue to push the students to their limits as the date of Nursing Boards g [...]

    14. If you are a fan of Call The Midwife, Downton Abbey or Upstairs Downstairs, you really have to read this book. OK, you have to read the whole series.I can't remember the last time I read a 400 + page book in one day, but I did with this one. The characters are all such fun to read, with vivid personalities and so many issues. With Dora, it is her boyfriend, who just happens to be married, (that's a long story) Lucy, whose father has disappeared after financially ruining them, Effie, who just lik [...]

    15. It’s 1937 and the student nurses are into their last three months of training. But how will Dora feel when she is paired up with her old enemy Lucy? The pair had never got along, but with them both facing problems in their personal life could this bring forth a change in their respect for one another? Jess Jago comes from a rough family background, and she cannot believe her luck when she lands a live-in job at the Nightingale, working as a maid. She is keen to do well, and be free of her fami [...]

    16. As I read each book of the nightingale series each one just gets better and that's just the case with this one. There are new staff at the nightingale along with old ones. Lucy and Dora who hate each other are paired together for the last three months and can they worth things out and does Lucy learn some hard lessons. Her family are in trouble and can they work it all out or do they loose everything but it does make Lucy think and she changes her attitude and does this mean she has more friends [...]

    17. I read this on the KindleThis is the 4th book in the seriesI enjoyed the book you had new students as well as having the students you meet in earlier booksI enjoyed the storyline with Jess Jago Housemaid in the Nurses home, also you learn what the new students are up to plus you always get one who thinks they know it all or thinks she better than others in earlier books it was Lucy Lane This is a continuing series that you need to read from book one which i have done & even starting on the n [...]

    18. I love this series about nurses in training during the 1930's. The author has developed each character so well that the reader feels they are meeting friends or enemies! This book was the 4th installment and the characters are growing and moving on while the author introduces us to new character. The narrator of the audio book is fantastic with each voice and emotion.

    19. It was great to revisit the Nightingale nurses in the latest book by Donna Douglas and as usual it was superbly written. There's a few new faces and some happy endings. I'm a bit sad that it might be end but who knows? Watch this space

    20. NightingalesThe 4th installment on the life of the Nightengale nurses ties up loose ends and yet leaves the door open for further adventures. I have truly enjoyed the journey. If you are a fan of the PBS series, The Midwives, you would most likely enjoy reading this series.

    21. I have read them all and loved everyone of them and great stories would like to see more. I loved the ending of the last book nightingales on call. How these girls worked so hard in those days I felt I had a done a shift with them.

    22. Great readHaving read the first three books in this series this one carried on and ended up introducing a new set of characters and the next set of nurses. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book and how the stories develop.

    23. Lovely story. I really enjoyed reading this book. Loved the addition of Jess and getting to know more about some of staff sisters. I would love to read more books by Donna Douglas.

    24. Really liked this book, set in the area where I grew up, and would like to read all the rest in the series.
