What was it like to be a district nurse in London in the 1960’s? This third book of Christine Curtis gives you an answer that is as entertaining as it is informative. In a very agreeable style, mild and full of humour, Chris recalls her years as a nurse in Finsbury Park, North London, with its many immigrants, its four-storey buildings, and its flats without heating or running water. We get to know Mrs Betts, who suffers from ulcers and enjoys being cared for by the Queen’s Nurse, the 90 year old Mrs Pettigrew, the brave Josie with her two little children --- and they move our hearts.
The book also tells us how the author emigrated to New Zealand, where she started a new life with her husband Ken and small son. The next seven years Chris would work as a rural district nurse in a vast area north of Auckland, where she was on call 24 hours a day. Life in the antipodes brings new adventures, new challenges, new experiences. Chris Curtis recounts them in her characteristic sympathetic manner. This book, the final one in a trilogy, was again a sheer pleasure to read.
