    A good piece of my enjoyment of this book is nostalgia I know Along with a recognition of where I got writing habits like the dash All over early 1900s literature British and American alike This is not a great work ButThere were only general impressions at first the black line of tenement roofs against the sky; the sharp cold of the February wind; the smell of sea and smoke; hallways with plaster peeling from the walls; dark flights of shaking stairs; grimy doors; a smell of cabbages and unaired feather beds and a sudden sharp picture of Mrs Kirmayer standing on a windy street corner looking up at the tenements Her hat brim cast a slanting shadow across her steady eyes I love these old streets she saidThe words were simple direct and undramatic but they were the summary of twenty five years of toil and teaching in crowded tenements twenty five years of trudging through winter snows and the stifling heat of summers that vanished one by one into a rich pastSue felt a little staggered What a full life you've had she saidYes Mrs Kirmayer returned uietlyThere's something tremendously engaging and open about the writing and about the way the book is a love letter to early 1900s New York This isn't a great book it can be indirect and rambling and unfocused but it has a great heart

    Sue and Kit are both excited to be accepted at the famous Henry Street Nursing Service in New York where they will become Visiting nurses Their joy is tinged with sadness that Connie will not be with them as she gives up nursing to prepare for her wedding to Phil Add in that they are staying in a haunted house and things are not going to be dullThis book was a complete departure from the other books in the series The girls are working as visiting nurses going out into New York to make home visits to those in need of medical help and guidance They are responsible for teaching families how to care for sick relatives teaching them health and hygiene getting them financial aid and employment and helping them with social problems I would say that Sue's job was that of nurse and social worker rolled into one It was uite fascinating to see what this kind of nursing involves and I imagine that there would be a lot of satisfaction involved in helping these people and solving their problems The book gets even interesting when Sue gets her own placement to work in Harlem I liked that we were seeing a new side of Harlem instead of just the scare stories about it being a bad place for white people In this book Harlem welcomes Sue with open arms and she loves working there and making a difference The people are warm and friendly and I really enjoyed this part of the bookThere were a few niggles for me Bill was being a bit of an ass indicating that Sue's work was not very important and that she should give it up and move to New Hampshire with him He totally disregards her feelings and does not treat her well which puts her into stubborn mode I understand that he doesn't want to wait forever to marry her and it was unreasonable to be asked to wait another two years but sulking and demanding does not work with Sue and their whole relationship is in jeopardy I didn't like the fact that Connie has just given up nursing to get married It basically proves that the other students in book one were right about the rich girl taking up nursing to pass the time or amuse herself and not being interested in it as a career Connie fought for two books to prove everyone wrong and then just uits proving they had her pegged right I felt it was a betrayal of the determined girl we met as a studentThe other thing I didn't like was the arrival of Marianna I don't like the way Kit and Sue took her on as a pet project Giving her a place to stay was one thing but trying to force her to go to night school to finish her education changing the way she speaks to be 'normal' and picking out a acceptable job for her just smacks of changing the girl to be a clone of themselves Next thing they are encouraging her to become a nurse I didn't like this at all I also didn't much like the personality of Marianna and she was a poor substitute for Connie or even HildaHowever I did enjoy the book overall It was nice to see a totally different nursing environment and Sue blossoms as she helps people It was a perfect setting for her to express herself and become part of a community good experience for her plans to work with Bill in New Hampshire Despite the niggles I had here none were enough to spoil the book for me and I look forward to the rest of the series

    This book is really long on descriptions of the everyday lives of nurses in NYC in the 1940s I mean down to the brass tacks The action I use that word under advisement is periodically sidelined when Nurse Barton and her colleagues provide exposition about nursing procedure In this book we learn that nurses carried their own bags with everything they need but when they enter a home they must ask for newspaper to provide a sterile surface for their instrumentsThere are lots of descriptions of local character by which I mean well meaning stereotypes This book was undoubtedly progressive in its time but I feel a little suiggy reading her depictions of immigrants and African AmericansAs I implied in my review of Sue Barton Rural Nurse the central mystery of the book is solved halfway through ie you find out who is haunting the house relatively uickly Still I think that these books work best as character studies and snapshots of the time periodAs I'm writing about this I am struck with the sudden realization that these books are advertisements for the career and also descriptions of what to expect in different nursing jobs These are like vocational manuals in a way In this book we find out what it is like to be a visiting nurse taking care of people in their homes in a big city In other books we find out what it is like to be well a neighborhood nurse a student nurse a rural nurse and so on Not only that but we also learn about the benefits of education and specifically of vocational education In this book Sue lives with one of her former classmates who is now her best friend And we meet another character who is inspired by them to complete her own education turn her life around and work to make the world a better place I think we owe a debt to Nurse Barton and her ilk both literarilly and real worldily She paved the way for other women fictional and real to have lives centered around their own careers their own friendships with other women and their own contributions to the world

    Blurb In this installment of the series Sue Barton has graduated from her nursing program and has been accepted as one of the famous Henry Street nurses in NYC She loves her job but will she choose it over marriage to Dr Bill Barry?I'm not sure what age group this book was intended for when it was published in 1938 but I imagine that it gave young girls a good idea of what public nursing was about I know that it drove me to find out about Lillian Wald and the real Henry Street program Another aspect of this book that I enjoyed is that Boylston shows Sue Barton as something of an independent woman or as independent as a woman could be in the 1930s Not only does she insist on having some time on her own before she marries but this agreement with her fiance becomes a major plot point This is in contrast to The Real Thing by Rosamond DuJardin a book that was probably aimed at the same audience but that made husband hunting sound like the main reason for going to collegeThis is the type of book I would have no problem handing to my 12 year old but she probably wouldn't read it because of the outdated writing style It is a good palate cleanser for an adult who just finished reading a intense book though

    I liked the Henry Street details I was particularly interested in how Sue and Kit graciously favoured the inhabitants of Harlem with the benefits of their class and skin colour and OK with Sue's dilemma of marriage versus work It makes me furious that Connie chose marriage right away versus her dream of being an anaesthesiologist She would have loved that so much What a waste I thought Sue and Bill's argument was a bit contrived as if the author was theorising beyond her knowledge of human interaction but was still very eager to keep the omniscient third thing going


  6. says:

    Yes this book is old fashioned but that doesn't mean that it couldn't be good I loved this book I liked all of the descriptions of the different charactors and I loved the little bit of excitement put into parts of the book Some parts of the book were hilarious and some were sad but overall it was a fantastic book and I give it a 5


  7. says:

    I honestly can't remember if I finished this one I thought I hadn't read it at all but the details in the reviews look familiar so maybe I did?Yes yes I did read this And it was my favourite of the series; yes the stereotypes of immigrants are cringe inducing but Boylston really is trying to portray them sympathetically so I am a little forgiving


  8. says:

    As the other Sue Barton books this gives a delightful picture of life as a visiting nurse in New York in the time around WW2 And though a lot of it must be outdated it is still captivating and interesting


  9. says:

    Sue is now a Henry Street nurse in NYC living in a haunted house and working in some of the toughest neighbourhoods Of course she has the skills to better the lives of those in her care but at what cost to her relationship with Bill? The plot of this book in the series is not especially strong but the characterisation makes up for that

    I have long since finished my Sue Barton reading project but for some reason my review writing stalled on this one Personal circumstances had something to do with it but the main reason is that I had a variety of somewhat conflicting reactions to this one so it was hard to organize my thoughtsIn this third installment of the series Sue and her friend Kit having graduated from nursing school move to New York where they work as visiting nurses for the Henry Street Settlement which was in fact an actual establishment founded by Lillian Wald In a note at the beginning Boylston thanks several women including two who tramped the districts with me day after day for sharing with me their knowledge and experience While looking up these passages to uote them I also noted that the actual edition I read a British paperback from the 70s my childhood copy has a disclaimer that states The reader will understand that the institution the staff and the patients mentioned in this story are wholly imaginary Um okay if you say so Anyway a lot of research went into the book and it shows in ways both good and bad Sue's daily routine the tiredness of her feet the heaviness of her bag the sometimes overwhelming nature of her work but its very great rewards are all conveyed well but there is also sometimes a rather leaden feel to the imparting of information about the Henry Street nursesAs a transplant to New York City I usually enjoy reading books about New York in the past and this one was no exception in that respect I can't uite decide if 60 a month for a house in Greenwich Village a tiny one we are told with about as much space as a small apartment is cheap by 1938 standards After Sue and Kit sign the lease for this house and the caretaker learns they are nurses he is dismayed and tells them if he'd known he wouldn't have let them sign it because the house is haunted When I read the book as a child the ghost part of the story was my favorite aspect Now not so much; it seems a little sillyMidway through the book the ghost issue is resolved and at this point the focus of the story switches to Sue's fiancee Bill Barry pressuring Sue to leave her work to join him in rural New Hampshire so that they can get married right away even though he previously agreed to give her two years on her own and Sue feels strongly that she needs to stay with the Henry Street Nurses for at least that length of time to justify the investment they made in her training Bill really comes across as a jerk The ending left me disgruntled view spoilerAfter Sue and Bill have made up from their big fight and Sue gives in to him in their tender tete a tete they summarily decide that Kit and Marianna the ghost will join them in New Hampshire as though they have no say in the matter Sue apparently has no problems with two Henry Street Nurses uitting shortly after completing their training hide spoiler
