She work along side her room mate nurse Mansion and her friends Bunty, Molly, Marjorie. In this story she try to keep s in touch with her brother Peter and her boy friend Giles.

I think this because she is treating soldiers how have been injured well in action. A lot of these soldiers die in the hospital and some are treated and discharged. The results of the war were described In the book by mean lying on the floor in the corridors because there are not enough beds for them.
I would recommend this book to other readers. If you like reading war books the then you will enjoy this book as well as people hoe like to read diaries of interesting points in history. This book is good to read because there is always action and there is back ground problems as well. I enjoyed this. The only reason I read this is that it relates to some research I'm doing, but what it aims to do I think it does very well. This is aimed at school-aged readers but it quite readable and informative for adult readers. The detail comes across as authentic; it appears well researched.
Sometimes the exposition is a little heavy-handed, as though a scene only exists to convey historical information, rather than serving the story, but given the educational intent, I think this is quit I enjoyed this.

Overall a worthwhile read for anyone interested in life on the home front and in a military hospital in Southern England, Jan 05, Molly added it. This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc. Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Probably not. Jul 12, Margaret rated it really liked it Shelves: world-war-ii. They were trained by the Red Cross and did a lot of the "grunt work" in the hospitals.
This book is the fiction journal of one such VAD and how she starts out as a nervous young girl and in through all her trials becomes a competent , mature "Nurse".

Some of the things that happened in the book brought a tear to my eye and that rarely happens to me when I read a book.

I so thoroughly enjoyed this one--it's sweet and warm and funny and sad all at the same time. I think it would have benefited at being aimed at a slightly older audience--aging it up a bit would have allowed Reid to lean a little heavier on some of the more mature themes--but ultimately it's still a well-done and very solid story.
