Welcome to my website

I’m Donna Douglas, author of the Nightingale novels, a series of heartwarming, emotional stories set in an East End hospital in the 1930s.  Let me take you into a bygone world of bedpans, bandages and broken hearts, full of memorable characters, all with a tale to tell. Sadness, secrets, love, life and gritty East End humour, you’ll find them all at the Florence Nightingale Teaching Hospital.

You can read an extract from the first novel in the series, The Nightingale Girls, and find out about the follow-up, The Nightingale Sisters, in these pages. You can also find out how to contact me – I’d love to hear from you.

Have fun and happy reading!
