I was very disappointed in this book. I thought I'd never finish it and I skimmed through most of it. I learned her struggle to overcome her families wishes came late, as she had to look after her family and do as they wished. She put off her nursing career until I believe her thirties. She had a true love but her love of nursing was stronger. Her initial study of nursing was short but it is always ongoing.The book covered too much politics and management for me. I wanted to read more of her personal nursing experiences. I hope others find the book more appealing.
