An honest and gritty story of the everyday trials and tribulations of the average nurse, Christie Watsons ‘The language of kindness’ is both simultaneously heart-warming and heartbreaking. Watson manages to encompass all the best and worst aspect of her extremely gruesome profession. Her descriptions of nursing premature babies praying that they’ll make it through the next hour or holding her patient’s hands before they go into life or death stories will genuinely make you appreciate the value of being a nurse.

The Language of kindness is a real and brutal portrayal of what nurses all over the world go through while still being able to capture the naturally good aura that nurses exude.
