Spine and corners bumped. Covers creased.
An enthralling novel of nursing in London's East End in the 1920s and 30s.
From reluctant Probationer to Staff-Nurse and to Sister, the story of Anne Lee’s career is given vivid authenticity by the author’s own experience as one of the very first women medical students at the London Hospital in Whitechapel.
Written at the peak of Josephine Elder’s writing powers, just after the best of her schoolgirl fiction, Sister Anne Resigns allows the author’s main themes of personal integrity and friendship to be developed more fully than girls’ novels allow.
Originally published in 1931 under the pseudonym Margaret Potter.
