KING STREET TO KING’S ROAD: A Journey Through Social And Medical History by Jacqueline Heron Wray
Like most journeys through life, there are many ups and downs – both personal and professional - -much more so with a medical background which by its very nature is a breeding ground for both captivating historical tales and human-interest stories.
This book is no exception.
Passionate about her vocation and committed to progressing her nursing career, the author shares many heart-wrenching and heart-warming anecdotes about the patients, her colleagues, senior officers, and the camaraderie she enjoyed throughout her career.
Expertly interspersed with beautiful poetry and photographs. Prose is peppered with intriguing (and very memorable) characters. From exciting accounts of psychics, witches and cannibalism, to her fascinating family tree with a potential link to King Robert The Bruce, her father being interviewed on TV, her cousins Cold War escapades in Moscow, and a family relocation to America.
Rich in social history, social commentary and delivered with a good dose of Scottish wit and humour, King Street to King’s Road is a wonderful story told by a talented storyteller with an unquenchable zest for life.
