Florence Nightingale's achievements over her long life extend far beyond the simple image of the Lady with the Lamp. She laid down the foundations of modern nursing and pioneered research into medical sanitation. From her tireless campaigning and intellectual abilities to her tortured relationship with her sister and her distressing medical condition, this vivid and readable biography draws on a wealth of unpublished material and previously unseen family papers, to disentangle myth from reality and reinvigorate one of the most iconic figures in British history.
