District nurse on call [text(large print)]

Douglas, Donna2019
Large Print
West Yorkshire, 1926. Following her training, Agnes Sheridan has been assigned her first post as a fully qualified Queen's Nurse to the West Yorkshire mining village of Bowden Main. Agnes arrives in the village wanting to make a difference, but she finds herself treated with suspicion. The close knit community is dominated by the looming presence of the coal pit, and to the pitmen and their families Agnes is just another servant of the wealthy Haverstock family who own the mine. The locals would rather put their trust in resident healer Nella Black, rather than a snooty district nurse. Just as Agnes feels she's making headway, the General Strike throws Bowden Main into turmoil. As the pit closes down and the miners and their families face hunger and hardship, Agnes finds her loyalties tested. It's time to prove whose side she is really on and to fight for her place in the village.
