The Year of the Nurse is here... Coming Home to Liverpool by Kate Eastham

9780241371268

A stirring and inspiring story which is perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Call The Midwife

Heartbroken but determined, Maud Linklater returns to her hometown of Liverpool intent on healing the sick and building a new life for herself and her son, Alfie

Liverpool 1872

Arriving back in her hometown after spending some time training at the Infirmary for Women in New York, Maud can’t wait to put her new-found skills to the test. But in a city built and run by men she must work hard to be accepted.

Whilst her nurse friends welcome her back with open arms there are others who do not wish her well, including the spiteful Nancy Sellers.

Nancy resented Maud’s talents as a nurse and seeing her arrive back with such fanfare puts her nose firmly out of joint. She will stop at nothing to sabotage Maud’s life and soon turns her attention to those Maud holds most dear.

But Maud Linklater is made of strong stuff and together with her friends, Alice and Eddie, can she overcome any obstacle Nancy, and Liverpool, might throw her way?

To celebrate the The World Health Organization (WHO) designated “Year of the Nurse and Midwife", Michael Joseph would love to offer 10 reading groups the chance to read and review Coming Home to Liverpool. Please let us know how many copies your reading group needs.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
