Taught me a lot about a person I had only heard of before. The themes and details are randomly scattered which leaves the chronology confusing. On the plus side Miller creates a real interest in Florence Nightingale, but on the negative side she should have used more of her 128 pages to fulfill that interest.

Loved this book and don't know why it didn't inspire me to make a similar carrer choice but it certainly made me more aware of helping people, empathy, hygeine and a wonderful strong woman. great for young people and adults.

This book was very informative. I had many misconceptions about her life and her accomplishments. It is a must-read!
