"A Nurse's Story"
The Language of Kindness: A Nurse's Story by Christie Watson (2018)
Hardcovered, with dust jacket, very gently used, in near-new condition.
Christie Watson spent twenty years as a nurse, and in this intimate, poignant, and remarkably powerful book, she opens the doors of the hospital and shares its secrets. She takes us by her side down hospital corridors to visit the wards and meet her unforgettable patients.
Through the smallest of actions, nurses provide vital care and kindness. All of us will experience illness in our lifetime, and may depend on the support and dignity that nurses offer us; yet the women and men who form the vanguard of our health care remain unsung. In this age of fear, hate, and division, Christie Watson has written a book that reminds us of all that we share, and of the urgency of compassion.
