A trainee nurse in the 1950s had a lot to bear. In Jennifer Craig's enchanting memoir, we meet these warm-hearted yet naive young girls as they get to grips with strict discipline, long hours and bodily fluids. But we also see the camaraderie that develops in late-night study sessions, sneaked trips to the cinema and mischievous escapades with twinkly-eyed young doctors.
