Nursing History Review, 2013.

“This book is a great introduction to Nightingale, the first full-length biography set in a postfeminist framework, beautifully written and complete, illustrated, with a narrative style that keeps the reader interested and involved. Cromwell has clearly done her homework.”

Reference & Research Book News, 2013

“This biography examines the life and career of pioneering nurse Florence Nightingale through the feminist lens, concentrating on her role in creating a career for women within the constraints of the Victorian era. Drawing on archives of her personal papers, the book portrays her as a lively, intelligent woman, a brilliant scholar, a skilled nurse, and exceptional organizer, and a servant of God.”
