The Sunday Times bestselling memoir about nursing from award-winning author, Christie Watson. Christie worked as a nurse for twenty years and uses her experience to create this astounding account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.
We watch as she nurses a premature baby who has miraculously made it through the night, we stand by her side during her patient's agonising heart-lung transplants, and we hold our breath as she washed the hair of a child fatally injured in a fire.
In our most extreme moments, when life is lived most intensely, Christie is with us. She is a guide, mentor and friend. And in these dark days of division and isolationism, she encourages us all to stretch out a hand.
