*****
West Yorkshire, 1926. After completing her training in Steeple Street, Agnes Sheridan is looking forward to making her mark as Bowden's first district nurse, confident she can make a difference in the locals’ lives.

But when Agnes arrives, she’s treated with suspicion, labelled just another servant of the wealthy mine owners. The locals would much rather place their trust in the resident healer – Hannah Arkwright.

And when the General Strike throws the village into turmoil, the miners and their families face hunger and hardship, and Agnes finds her loyalties tested.

Now it’s time to prove whose side she is really on and to fight for her place in the village . . .

'Full of well drawn characters and intriguing relationships. Donna Douglas skilfully charts her heroine's attempts to be accepted . . . uncovering secrets, heartbreak and lost loves along the way!'
Mary Gibson, author of Custard Tarts and Broken Hearts

from the publisher's description

A very well researched and vivid portrayal of a close knit mining community facing poverty, hardship and danger during the momentous year of 1926. I was quickly drawn into this story, full of well drawn characters and intriguing relationships. Donna Douglas skilfully charts her heroine's attempts to be accepted by the proud and often hostile community she serves - uncovering secrets, heartbreak and lost loves along the way!

Mary Gibson, author of Custard Tarts and Broken Hearts

Readers are sure to be hooked from the very first page of this wonderfully written and wholly absorbing saga… A fascinating, compelling and outstanding read saga fans will not want to miss, District Nurse On Call is another winner by Donna Douglas
