    2. This is definitely not one of MB's better books. In fact, this one read more like a "first work" effort rather than one in the height of her career. I searched for the copyright and was shocked to see that it was first published in 1958 when MB was well into her writing career. It was slow to get started. I was at the half way point before I felt like we were getting into the actual story. Until then, I was just reading about a nurse that relocated to Canada which is ok, but hardly a mesmerizing [...]

    3. I've read this several times and enjoyed it every time. The heroine Madeline goes to Canada after her half sister Clarissa suggests, it having become engaged to a Canadian.Clarissa however jilts the Canadian and marries someone else and Madeline decides to go anyway and work in the Dominion Hospital. Incidentally I couldn't find such a hospital in 1958 Montreal but several other places were mentioned providing some interest.Madeline makes a friend in Nat Lanyon, the distinguished surgeon who was [...]

    4. Romance in the medical world. Enjoyable.Madeline is a nurse. Dr. Lanyon said to be unapproachable. There is also a beautiful Mrs. Sanders, among the patients, and her attractive son among patients.

    5. I have never rated a Mary Burchell story below 4 stars, this one just fell off the mark a little. For one, the heroine spends an inordinate amount of time fantasizing about another man.

I'd rather have jealous histrionics than an indifferent hero who knows the other guy is a scum and patiently waits for the girl to come to her senses. But in the last few pages when she does really come to her senses thanks to the other guy, she doe [...]

    6. I did not care for her half sister at all and wanted to see her telling her off but that never happened. I cared less for the mother of the OM she was seeing! What a bitch! I loved the opera singer patient! How many times she was married and still her ex husbands would do anything for her even marrying her rivals so she could get the role! LOL It was part geography, part romance!
