DESCRIPTION:

Far more problematic was Florence’s inexplicable refusal to marry the well-connected Richard Monckton Milnes. The reality is more involved and far more fascinating. We know her today primarily as a saintly character, perhaps as a heroic reformer of Britain’s health-care system. Florence’s later insistence on traveling to the Crimea at the height of war to tend to wounded soldiers was all but incendiary–especially for her older sister, Parthenope, whose frustration at being in the shade of her more charismatic sibling often led to illness. Florence succeeded beyond her wildest dreams. As Gill so brilliantly shows, this matrimonial refusal was at once an act of religious dedication and a cry for her freedom–as a woman and as a leader. But at the height of her celebrity, at the age of thirty-seven, she retired to her bedroom and remained there for most of the rest of her life, allowing visitors only by appo

Florence Nightingale's influence on modern nursing care. florida gardener This book although tedious at times, due to the language and writing style of the Victorian era is one of the very best and most complete coverage of the era, people's mindset, its culture, politics and the status of women.

A little too chatty and contrived, and the author really needs to work on not personalizing conclusions and opinions so much. The constant "I think Florence" or "I feel Florence" is a bit much. Leave that kind of writing to your blog please.Other than that, a decent book, little bit of protesting too much when it comes to Nightingale's sexual proclivity, and again, personal opinions shouldn't be presented so strongly in what is. Fantastic story, interesting, well-written! Rita Seymour Gillian Gill is an exceptional storyteller and she does an amazing job sharing the story of the Nightingales and, in particular, Florence Nightingale. I could barely stop reading! It took awhile for me to get accustomed to King this, Queen that, Duke this, Duke that, but after Gill gets beyond some of those explanations, the book really comes alive. I have since ordered two more of her books! I gained such a deep appreciation f

Critics disagree about Gill’s tone; while novelistic, the constant use of “I” distracted some and edified others. Similarly, the myriad details both add and subtract from the narrative. Such is also true of Gill, who abandons historical speculation in favor of fastidious reliance on diaries and letters from Nightingale’s family, friends, and colleagues. Yet, on each page, Nightingales offers a unique perspective on the Bird’s fascinating life. Besides vividly evoking Austenesque mores, Gill creates full-blooded characters, from a sickly sister to a dilettante father. Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc..
