• The handbook for compassion... a must-read book

    Chris Evans
  • Now more than ever, nurses are on our minds and in our hearts. Christie writes with beauty and compassion about how they do their jobs. When I wasn't crying, I was marvelling

    Tracy Chevalier, author of A Single Thread
  • In this timely read, Watson, a former nurse who returned to work in critical care during the coronavirus peak, tells stories both heart-in-mouth and humbling. She reveals the extraordinary, beyond-the-call-of-duty work that nurses do, and the bravery of the patients and families they care for

    Jacqueline Wilson
  • Generous, intimate and insightful. The Courage to Care is persuasive and powerful as a memoir of a remarkable twenty-year career, and also an adventure story through the shifting landscape of NHS nursing. This book shows why nurses top the polls every year as the most trusted, reliable professionals.

    Joanna Cannon, author of Breaking and Mending
  • This beautiful book captures magnificently the rawness, courage and tenderness of nursing. It made me cry, smile and gasp out loud. It sings with humanity

    Rachel Clarke, author of Dear Life
  • A call to arms and soul-baring personal odyssey, this book will set hearts and minds on fire. Very few writers can make you care this much, and make you laugh, bawl and stay up all night reading to the final page. Christie Watson writes with the sharpest wit, the finest observations, and has a heart as deep and wild as a river

    Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Adults
  • Christie Watson has once again proved she is the pre-eminent voice of the nursing memoir

    Nathan Filer, author of This Book Will Change Your Mind About Mental Health
