Donna Douglas's Nightingale novels have been bestsellers since their first publication and now each book rides high in the Sunday Times list on publication. The series opens in 1934 as three girls set out on the path to become nurses at the Nightingale Teaching Hospital and each new novel takes their story on to further heartache and happiness.
In the latest novel in the series, Nightingale Wedding Bells (Arrow, October 2019), it's 1917 and World War I rages on, but for the Nightingale nurses, wedding bells are ringing. Anna is over the moon when her sweetheart Edward returns from the front line, but the horrors of the trenches cast a long shadow. Dulcie has her sights set on her own happy ending, yet sometimes love comes from where you least expect it. Grace's parents have very different dreams for her future than caring for shell-shocked soldiers - will she have the strength to forge her own path?
Donna also writes The Nurses of Steeple Street series. She lives in York.
