Every day was full of excitement. My hand flew across the paper as words poured from my fountain pen. I wanted to share the experience and my brain needed to make sense of all that was happening. My new independence, albeit limited, was both thrilling and daunting. The world of illness and death would prove challenging, but life in Cambridge was full of opportunities, and boys! Letters were my lifeline, a pleasure to write, a joy to receive, and an efficient means of communication in an era when telephone calls were expensive and only used for matters of importance.

Sharing her letters written at the time, Nurse Walker invites us to experience her training as a student nurse at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and the fun she had living in Cambridge. Meet her friends, face her fears and heartbreak, her joys and frustrations, and learn about the patients she will never forget.

This honest and candid autobiography brings the caring vocation of nursing in the 1960s vividly back to life.
