When a young nurse dies on her watch, Florence
Nightingale must uncover the deep-hidden secrets someone
will kill to keep buried.
It is 1853. Lady of the Lamp Florence Nightingale has just
accepted the position of Superintendent of the
Establishment for Gentlewomen During Temporary Illness in
London. She has hardly had time to learn the names of the
nurses in her charge when she suddenly finds one of them
hanging in the Establishment’s library. Her name was Nurse
Florence’s mettle is tested by the dual goals of
preserving what little reputation her hospital has and
bringing Nurse Bellamy’s killer to justice. Her efforts
are met with upturned noses and wayward glances except for
her close friend and advocate inside the House of Commons,
Sidney Herbert. As Florence digs deeper, however, her
attention turns to one of the hospital investors and
suddenly, Sidney becomes reluctant to help.
With no one but herself to count on, Florence must now
puzzle out what the death of an unknown, nondescript young
nurse has to do with conspiracies lurking about at the
highest levels of government before she’s silenced too.
