Publisher's Summary

Noleen Delaney is one of an army of night cleaners at St Angelus hospital in Liverpool. Since her husband was injured in the war, she has supported her five children and the family; she just about gets by.
When Finn, her youngest, passes the 11-plus exam, Noleen feels faint. Allowing Finn to attend the grammar will stretch her purse too far. As the nurses of Lovely Lane near their final exams, Noleen will find herself tested and her heart broken. Just how far can a mother's love stretch?

the mothers who held their families together..

What did you like most about The Mothers of Lovely Lane?

I loved how the author not only showed us the lives of the nurses of this brilliant series but we also get introduced to those mothers who went to work night after night, cleaning the hospital when everyone slept.

What did you like best about this story?

There was danger from those who fought against the law, but it took the bravery of a fourteen-year-old who stood up against the evil that tried to take over Liverpool through fear and so much more.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I would not like to describe a scene as I do not want to ruin the storyline for other readers but there is one near the end when ghosts from the past are finally laid to rest.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the whole book moved me as it was full of wonderful writing and excellent narration from the narrator Georgia Maguire.

Any additional comments?

A Fantastic Follow Up

In this third instalment of the series, Nadine Dorries expands further on the lives and loves of the four Nurses. Also, as before, she explores the support, togetherness and resilience of the community.
Once again very well narrated by Georgia Maguire. I love this series - it begs for a fourth edition to the story.
