I enjoy Cherry Ames even more now, after hearing a few of my friend's nursing stories. Even the mysteries don't seem quite so far fetched, now that I've heard a bit about what can really happen in a hospital. Mountaineer Nurse has a wonderful "Cherry" feel to it and it's amazing how sympathetic the style is to the original Helen Wells stories. And the Kentucky characters somehow avoided becoming caricatures. ( )

If you read this book when you were young...take the time to reread it! This series is very inspiring for young girls as they see how women in the 1940's helped strengthen America. ( )

Book description
Cherry Ames takes a break from city nursing, and joins her friend Bertha Larsen in Heartbreak Hollow. This rural setting has wonderful people who haven't been exposed to a lot of modern medicine, so Cherry and Bertha are needed desperately. But things start to go awry when an entire batch of wool is ruined and a hog is poisoned. It reignites a feud between the Clarkes and the Smiths, prohibits two lovebirds from marrying, and sparks ferver in the devil interfearing in their lives. Cherry must use all her resources to save the town from whooping cough and a "devil in disguise".
