Editorial Reviews


A fascinating story meticulously written, often graphic, it can be an important contributor to our country's debate on healthcare -- Editor, Montreal Business Magazine, October, 2005

The reader (is) totally enclosed in the small world of a teaching hospital for three fascinating years. -- Montreal Review of Books, November, 2005

This highly readable, sometimes graphic memoir is heart wrenching and hilarious, filled with medical drama and timeless insights. -- Past President, Editorial, Reader's Digest Canada Ltd, October, 2005

YatesAdelman restores reader’s faith in a profession that has been reputed to lack sensitivity and revives confidence in medical personnel. -- Canadian Writers' Society, October, 2005

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I graduated from Holy Cross School of Nursing a few years before the author.

I found out about this book at our 50th class reunion last week. I borrowed a classmate's copy and

laughed and cried. It was like reliving my own experience.

Sr. LeClerc may have been "hard" on us, but we have tried to live up to the potential

she saw in us and we should all thank her.

I couldn't wait to get back to the States from Calgary and log on to Amazon to buy my own copy.

Thanks Donna for a wonderful trip down memory lane... but I'm sure any nurse could identify

with the story, and it's a great book for the lay reader to understand what goes into the making of a nurse!

Yes, Sister is a must read for everyone who cares about people. The emotions involved in the situations encountered by this young nurse are communicated so well that I was often in tears while ready this book. I felt her joys, her disappointments and her pain. Ms. Yates-Adelman sure knows how to tell a story that leaves one feeling like she's been by the nurse's side throughout. Thank you Ms. Yates-Adelman wherever you are!!!
