I requested The Nightingale Girls because it immediately reminded me of Call The Midwife. Set in London’s East End during the 30s it follows three young girls in The Nightingale, a training hospital for nurses.
It wasn’t for me, unfortunately. I felt too little history and way to much soap opera. Besides, while it was a very easy read and not unpleasant as such, the multiple characters included felt like clichés to me and the stories were rather predictable.
I have to admit I don’t think this genre really fits me, so I will leave the other books in the series as they are.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
