"This long and detailed biography presents a complete and faithful portrait of the astonishing woman who was Florence Nightingale.  When the book was first published in 1950, it had been Miss Nightingale's fate to be obscured by her own celebrity and to have he brilliance of her mind and personality clouded by her romantic appeal as the Lady with the Lamp.

In the preparation of her biography, Mrs Woodham-Smith had been allowed access to a very large quantity of papers which, for family reasons, had never before been available.  the character of Miss Nightingale which emerges is as fascinating as it is unexpected."
