Summary

It is 1953, and five girls are arriving to start their training at St Angelus Hospital. Dana has escaped from her family farm in Ireland. Victoria is running away from an aristocratic background. Beth is an army brat and throws her lot in with bitchy Celia Forsyth, and Pammy has come from the wrong side of the tracks.
When an unknown girl is admitted after a botched backstreet abortion, a tragedy begins to unfold which will rock the world of St Angelus to its foundations.

Nurses soap opera

There are several appealing characters, but they are burdened with a truely soap opera-worthy plot. I wish the author had focused on the nurses training and interaction with patients, rather than the romantic entanglements. Narrator was fabulous !

GREAT story and good depiction of the time era

Would you consider the audio edition of The Angels of Lovely Lane to be better than the print version?

It might lose something in print. The readers were great

What did you like best about this story?

I could really identify with characters and era since it was the same year I went off to Nursing School. It really ook me back and the author captured the time and events well.
Things have changed so much since that time it was one of he books you laughed and cried with and for the characters.

What does Georgia Maguire bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The feeling of really being in the time

If you could take any character from The Angels of Lovely Lane out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Donna, she was so honest and forthcoming

Any additional comments?

I hope to see more of her books soon.
