Praise for this remarkable chronicle
"This beautiful book is the most comprehensive and creative examination I have ever read of the life of
this remarkable woman."
H. Lea Gaydos, PhD, RN, AHN-BC
"Florence Nightingale is one of the most important female figures in health care of the past two centuries
and perhaps of all time. This book shows how Nightingale helped transform the status of women, and why all
modern women are in Nightingale's debt."
Lynn Keegan, RN, PhD, HNC, FAAN
5 Stars! "It is fascinating to read and lovely to look at and would make an exceptional addition to a
nursing or personal library. This is a one-of-a-kind, artistic history of the life of a nursing icon."
