Florence Nightingale

This is an inspiring story of Florence Nightingale from her earliest days as the privileged daughter of an English squire to her role as Angel of the Crimea. Even as a young girl her nursing talents were evident as she doctored her dolls and ministered to sickly animals. With the training she received at hospitals on the Continent, she was ready when the call to the Crimea came.

Facing unspeakable filth and disorganization, she and her staff of nurses cared for thousands of sick and wounded soldiers, earning their undying gratitude, forever imprinting on history her role as “the lady with the lamp”. This narrative biography focuses on Florence’s growing up years, her heroic and patriotic service during the Crimean War, and her life of sacrifice and service thereafter.
