WOW, I’m blown away by this book I just read! It was so interesting! If you like serious and historical books read, “Heart and Soul of Florence Nightingale”. This book is about a woman from England who just didn’t want to be a useless lady like every women of her time was. So, she became a nurse. She was probably the best nurse of her time, in my opinion. If you want to learn more about Florence Nightingale read this book.
