Book review in The Lady

thelady“A beautifully written and moving memoir of life as a trainee nurse in a struggling NHS hospital in 1970s Hackney. Beeson’s daily life and the colourful characters she met are superbly described, and we begin to understand how her most difficult experiences were also some of the most rewarding. Her selfless dedication brought hope to her patients and made a difference to their lives. A comforting and inspiring read.”

The Guardian Review

guardian‘A poignant memoir in which Beeson recalls her life as a new nurse, arriving at Hackney General Hospital in London’s East End in 1969, at the age of 17. Funny, warm and moving, it looks at the lives of the nurses and their patients. Will appeal to fans of “Call The Midwife” and other nostalgic autobiographies.’

Book Review from Life on Magrs

Paul MagrsIt was a real thrill that our first book review was by one of our favourite authors Paul Magrs author of The Brenda & Effie Mysteries. When we read it we cried.

“I thought this was a wonderful book – written in conjunction with the author’s daughter, a one-time student of mine and terrific writer, Amy Beeson. It’s a book told lucidly, matter-of-factly, and with a great deal of compassion. The past is evoked beautifully, I think – reminding us of the rather harsher living conditions of the era, and the feeling that Britain was only just ceasing to be some kind of latterday Victorian society…” Keep on reading on Paul’s blog Life on Magrs.
