The Angels of Lovely Lane
The Angels of Lovely Lane: A powerful 1950s nursing saga from the Sunday Times bestseller Nadine Dorries
 The Lovely Lane Series, 1

'As heart-warming as it is heartbreaking, this novel is unputdownable' Sunday Express.

It is 1953 and five very different girls are arriving at the nurses' home in Lovely Lane, Liverpool, to start their training at St Angelus Hospital.

Dana has escaped from her family farm on the west coast of Ireland. Victoria is running away from a debt-ridden aristocratic background. Beth is an army brat and throws her lot in with bitchy Celia Forsyth. And Pammy has come from quite the wrong side of the tracks in Liverpool.

The world in which they now find themselves is complicated and hierarchical, with rules that must be obeyed. Everyone has their place at St Angelus and woe betide anyone who strays from it.

But when an unknown girl is admitted, after a botched late abortion in a backstreet kitchen, a tragedy begins to unfold which will rock the world of St Angelus to its foundations.

Can't wait for the next one? THE CHILDREN OF LOVELY LANE is out now!
