Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER*BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week*An astonishing memoir about nursing and an urgent call for compassion and kindness 'It made me cry. It made me think. It made me laugh. It encouraged me to appreciate this most underappreciated of professions more than ever? Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt'A remarkable book about life and death and so brilliantly written it makes you hold your breath? Ruby WaxChristie Watson was a nurse for twenty years. Taking us from birth to death and from A&E to the mortuary, The Language of Kindness is an astounding account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.We watch Christie as she nurses a premature baby who has miraculously made it through the night, we stand by her side during her patient?s agonising heart-lung transplant, and we hold our breath as she washes the hair of a child fatally injured in a fire, attempting to remove the toxic smell of smoke before the grieving family arrive.In our most extreme moments, when life is lived most intensely, Christie is with us. She is a guide, mentor and friend. And in these dark days of division and isolationism, she encourages us all to stretch out a hand.'It is very hard to describe the essence of nursing but Christie?s story captures it. Through her powerful writing the true value of the nurse becomes clear? Janet Davies, Chief Executive and General Secretary, Royal College of Nursing
