Australian Hospital
Dingwell
1980 (original copyright 1955)

I found this book digging through the donation pile and loved the cover art. I think the drama of the woman biting her finger is just awesome. Dingwell’s catalog of over 80 titles is impressive by any standard. I usually get a kick out of these vintage titles for the cover art alone. The women always look a bit unhinged, and this one is no exception.

We featured a few of her books: Sister Pussycat (who doesn’t love that title?) and Nurse Smith, Cook.  This title is similar to most romances of the period. The awful guy is the right guy and there is the requisite misunderstanding between our lovers. Don’t worry, things will all work out by the end of the book.
