Publisher's Summary

West Yorkshire, 1926. After completing her training in Steeple Street, Agnes is looking forward to making her mark as the village's first district nurse, confident she can make a difference in the locals' lives. But when she arrives, she's treated with suspicion, labelled just another servant of the wealthy mine owners. The locals would much rather place their trust in the resident healer, Nella Black. And when the General Strike throws Bowden Main into turmoil, the miners and their families face hunger and hardship, and Agnes finds her loyalties tested. Now it's time to prove whose side she is really on and to fight for her place in the village....

Made me appreciate coal miners and their families!

Having grown up using coal to heat my family’s home I now have an appreciation of what it took to get it!
