This is an enchanting memoir of nurses in training in 1950’s Leeds.  Warm-hearted and naïve young girls come to grips with strict discipline, long hours and bodily fluids.  Rich in period detail and told with a good dose of Yorkshire humour, Yes Sister, No Sister is a life-affirming true story of a life long past.  It became a publishing phenomenon in the U.K. where it rose to the top 10 of the Sunday Times bestseller list and remained there for 20 weeks, selling 111,000 copies.

“…her affectionate and humorous story is testament to the corner of her heart that still dwells in the lofty corridors of Leeds General Infirmary.” –  Lancaster Guardian
