The Nurse's Secret by Amanda Skenandore Book Summary
The unflinching, spellbinding new book from the acclaimed author of The Second Life of Mirielle West. Based on the little-known story of America’s first nursing school, a young female grifter in 1880s New York evades the police by conning her way into Bellevue Hospital’s training school for nurses, while a spate of murders continues to follow her as she tries to leave the gritty streets of the city behind…
“A spellbinding story, a vividly drawn setting, and characters that leap off the pages. This is historical fiction at its finest!” —Sara Ackerman, USA Today bestselling author of The Codebreaker’s Secret
Based on Florence Nightingale’s nursing principles, Bellevue is the first school of its kind in the country. Where once nurses were assumed to be ignorant and unskilled, Bellevue prizes discipline, intellect, and moral character, and only young women of good breeding need apply. At first, Una balks at her prim classmates and the doctors’ endless commands. Yet life on the streets has prepared her for the horrors of injury and disease found on the wards, and she slowly gains friendship and self-respect.
Just as she finds her footing, Una’s suspicions about a patient’s death put her at risk of exposure, and will force her to choose between her instinct for self-preservation, and exposing her identity in order to save others.
Amanda Skenandore brings her medical expertise to a page-turning story that explores the evolution of modern nursing—including the grisly realities of nineteenth-century medicine—as seen through the eyes of an intriguing and dynamic heroine.
PRAISE FOR AMANDA SKENANDORE’S THE SECOND LIFE OF MIRIELLE WEST

Historical Mystery Thriller Medical FictionThe Nurse's Secret by Amanda Skenandore is Historical Fiction with mystery and suspense. Wow, I loved this book. The streets and people of New York in the 1880’s, with a hardened young woman just trying to survive. Secrets, adventures,criminals, murder mysteries, and trying to hide from the police. Of special interest to me was the nurses and doctors training at Bellevue Hospital in the 19th century. The whole hospital environment, the classes, the operating room, the teaching doctors and nurses, patient treatments and entire culture was exceptionally well written.
