Publisher's Summary

It's 1945 and, as the troops begin to return home, the inhabitants of London attempt to put their lives back together. For 25-year-old Millie, a qualified nurse and midwife, the jubilation at the end of the war is short-lived as she tends to the needs of the East End community around her. But while Millie witnesses tragedy and brutality in her job, she also finds strength and kindness. And when misfortune befalls her own family, it is the enduring spirit of the community that shows Millie that even the toughest of circumstances can be overcome.
Through Millie's eyes, we see the harsh realities and unexpected joys in the lives of the patients she treats, as well as the camaraderie that is forged with the fellow nurses that she lives with. Filled with unforgettable characters and moving personal stories, this vividly brings to life the colourful world of a post-war East London. Read by Penelope Freeman.

What did you like best about Call Nurse Millie? What did you like least?

There were some parts of this book that I enjoyed. . but it was all so predicatable & I found the end was incredibly weak ...I was expecting it to go on & all of a sudden it ended !


Would you recommend Call Nurse Millie to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes I would recommend it - just a light reading when you have nothing better to read.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Penelope Freeman?

Annie Aldington, she always brings these sort of books to life & makes them far more enjoyable....


Was Call Nurse Millie worth the listening time?

Not especially.


Any additional comments?

Just disappointed with this book, but unless you listen to them, you will never know will you !
