A must read for anyone who has the slightest interest in the Crimean War, Black history or nursing. Mary Seacole is a lady of huge character and determination who was able to give soldiers excellent nursing much closer to the front line than her peer, Florence Nightingale. Even through adversity she was able to gain the soldiers respect and admiration, even after the war and she was left in poverty. Highly recommend.
