  • Edited by Ruth Cown and foreword by Michael Morpurgo. Edith Appleton, known as Edie, was working as a professional nurse when war broke out in 1914. She immediately joined the military nursing services and spent the next four years treating dying and injured allied soldiers in France and Belgium, as they fought an entirely new type of war: one of horrendous living conditions, gas attacks and shell-shocked survivors. A Nurse at the Front contains the fascinating diaries Edie kept of her experiences. Surrounded by death, she never lost her appreciation of life. Against the background of Ypres and the Somme, Edie writes unflinchingly, with clarity and even wit. We see the Great War through a new set of eyes in an acutely observed, courageous account of life on the front line of treacherous warfare.   All shop sales support the Florence Nightingale Museum, a registered charity, and it?s work.

  • The hand of a stranger offered in solace. A flower placed on a dead body as a mark of respect. A gentle word in response to fear and anger. It is these moments of empathy, in the extremis of human experience, that define us as people. Nobody knows this better than a nurse and Molly Case has witnessed countless such moments. In?How to Treat People,?she documents these extraordinary points, when two people truly connect. In rich, lyrical prose, she introduces us to patients with whom we share the pain, but also the experience of illness when life is at its most vivid. And when her father is admitted to the high dependency unit on which she works, Molly confronts care in a whole new way, when two worlds - the professional and the personal - suddenly collide. Weaving together medical history, art, memoir and science,?How to Treat People?beautifully illustrates the intricacies of the human condition and the oscillating rhythms of life and death. Most of all, it is the heart-stopping reminder that we can all find meaning in being part, even for a moment, of the lives of others.   All shop sales support the Florence Nightingale Museum, a registered charity, and its work.?
