I enjoyed this book a lot...right up until the last quarter. Like some of the other reviewers, the "magic" business left me cold. I thought it was enough that she was a gifted nurse and really took her job seriously. And really, that facet of her character (the magic stuff) went nowhere--it was never explained or developed. Same with the seeing dead people bit--it came out of nowhere, never happened again, and to me felt out of place in the plot. For me, the historical story was enough; I didn't need the paranormal angle, but maybe that's what authors have to throw in these days to get a book published.
