An extraordinarily powerful book based on the diaries of Anthea Allen, an intensive care nurse who worked on the front line at one of the biggest hospitals in Europe during the peak of the Covid crisis. Her gripping and incredibly moving recollections have been feted by a great r...ange of people, from Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain to Richard Branson and the Queen's apothecary, as well as being excerpted in the Daily Mail. What started as a weekend email to friends and family to process the reality of life during Covid quickly won her a growing army of support. Anthea has a rare gift of communicating the unique camaraderie of the NHS, the private tragedies of families, and the struggles which she has faced holding her personal and professional life together. Beyond politics, charts and statistics, Anthea - a natural and truly eloquent diarist - tells the stories of real people, real lives and real hopes and fears in an extraordinary time none of us will ever forget.
