I Surely Enjoyed

…the book, Nightingales: The Extraordinary Upbringing and Curious Life of Miss Florence Nightingale, by Gillian Gill.  Just ask Miss B.  😉

It was long, detailed, and in-depth.  I didn’t know much about Florence Nightingale at all, but her life truly is a fascinating study.  From her various family connections, to her famous friends and acquaintances, and her own personal quirks and brilliance; it’s quite a read.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Gill’s style, and the fact that for a modern biographer, she seemed to have a pretty ballanced approach.  I would be interested in reading more of her work.  Have any of you?
