Summary

Summary

The name of Florence Nightingale is a household word, but the exact nature and scope of her work, and the difficulties and discouragement under which it was accomplished, are unknown to many in the present generation. This story of that justly beloved woman’s life is told by one whose father was in part responsible for Miss Nightingale’s decision to devote her life to nursing. Written with a rare sympathy and beauty of style, this uplifting account of a noble life will inspire young and old alike.

Author Bio: Laura E. Richards

Laura E. Richards (1850–1943), a Pulitzer Prize–winning author, was born in Boston to eminent parents: Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, founder of the Perkins School for the Blind, and Julia Ward Howe, social reformer and lyricist of the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” In 1871, she married Henry Richards (1848–1949), architect and industrialist, and moved with him to Gardiner, Maine. Following the example of her parents, she brought about many social reforms and civic improvements in her hometown. She also wrote more than ninety works, mostly in the fields of children’s literature (to please her children) and biography. Captain January (1890), a bestseller, was twice made into a movie, the second time starring Shirley Temple. Her two-volume biography of her mother, Julia Ward Howe (1915), was the first biography to be honored by a Pulitzer Prize.
