From Library Journal
Nightingale, pioneer statistician, and healthcare reformer, and the founder of modern nursing, was also a deeply philosophical and spiritual thinker, as revealed in these selections from her three-volume work, written in her thirties and influential on her later writings. Aiming to provide an alternative to atheism for those who had left traditional religion, she struggles to articulate a reasonable faith, liberate women, and develop a sense of the spirit of God within human persons. Historians, feminists, nurses, and those struggling with issues of religious faith in the contemporary world may find this work inspiring. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.

"This book is an excellent resource for readers seeking to understand Florence Nightingale's thought and its place in the intellectual and philosophical history of nursing. The book provides fertile ground for study and reflection by those interested in a glimpse into the inner life of a complex and productive woman."—Nursing History Review
