Product Details


“This highly readable and well-researched biography does an excellent job of integrating the social and medical conditions of Nightingale’s time…Gorrell succeeds in separating myth from reality, smoothly crafting a picture of a gifted individual who was also wholly human.”
School Library Journal

“This fascinating book is filled with little-known facts, photographs and drawings of Nightingale’s personal life, and descriptions of her era’s social mores and medical profession, all of which make her achievements more astounding.”

“Lively and highly readable.”

“Accessible, inspiring, and packed with unusual facts, this book will find its way into the heart and soul of many readers, both young and old.”
Quill & Quire

Heart and Soul is one of those treasures that should not be allowed to gather dust on a library shelf. Well-written, informative and interesting, it will appeal to anyone thinking about a career in nursing as well as rouse the curiosity of future history majors.”
Children’s Book Review Service

“…a rich social history of Victorian England and a distinctly feminist picture of the life of an extraordinary woman…”
Houston Chronicle

“A compelling biography of a woman who, against innumerable odds, established nursing as an honorable and dignified profession.”
Sunday Times

“A perfect library reference book, and a great read for anyone interested in nursing or Victorian history.”
