    One thought on “Florence Nightingale: The Lady of the Lamp”

    1. Great overview of an incredible woman. Favorite quotes:"Women never have a half-hour in all their lives that they can call their own, without fear of offending or hurting someone A woman could never get anything but odd moments to herself. Can we fancy Michelangelo running up and putting a touch to his Sistine ceiling in odd moments?"

    2. Taught me a lot about a person I had only heard of before. The themes and details are randomly scattered which leaves the chronology confusing. On the plus side Miller creates a real interest in Florence Nightingale, but on the negative side she should have used more of her 128 pages to fulfill that interest.

    3. Loved this book and don't know why it didn't inspire me to make a similar carrer choice but it certainly made me more aware of helping people, empathy, hygeine and a wonderful strong woman. great for young people and adults.

    4. This book was very informative. I had many misconceptions about her life and her accomplishments. It is a must-read!
