"This latest book on Nightingale makes an insightful contribution to the existing literature on the world's most well-known nurse, being the first to explore her domestic experiences and how the theme of home influenced her writings and work." (David Stewart, nottinghamnursinghistory.wordpress.com, July 7, 2021)
"Few books succeed in entering the private life of such an important figure as Florence Nightingale. Inquiries into the private life of physicians and scientists are numerous, but not so many do it with tact or, more than anything, with a clear vision of the deep connection between the private life, 'at-homeness,' and a professional endeavor - here, the feeling to be generated in the patient's life. This is a book written with light brush strokes, all with great attention to detail." (Alain Touwaide, Doody's Book Reviews, March 19, 2021)
"Part of the pleasure in reading this thoughtful and well-executed collaborative work is the way in which the received narrative boundaries have been dissolved. ... For any student of Nightingale, or of gender and health in the nineteenth century, the authors offer a wonderfully detailed discussion of the past 40 years of scholarship assembled along the lines of home and domesticity." (Sioban Nelson, Social History of Medicine, March 12, 2021)
