Inhaltsangabe:

Nightingale is the astonishing true story of Elisabeth Mannering Congdon, heiress to a mining fortune and victim of one of Minnesota's most notorious homicides. Entrusted with the burdens and joys of memory, Elisabeth's eldest granddaughter, Suzanne Congdon LeRoy, combines lived experience with meticulous historical research, detailing a perilous journey as she tries to escape her own mother, a dangerous serial criminal falling deeper into madness. Elisabeth Congdon emerges not as heiress or victim but as the messenger of spring and the key to her granddaughter's survival. Her early efforts to nurture a foundation of hope, optimism, and the power of possibility lead Suzanne to advanced education, a remarkable nursing career and the discovery of the ineffable relationship between healing oneself, service to others, and the connection to the spirit and beauty of the earth that makes her whole again. Nightingale is a book of rare power, beauty, and hope.
"This powerful memoir tells the story of a young girl whose beloved grandmother 
provided security in the midst of an otherwise unpredictable and sometimes violent 
family. Many children in such circumstances would lose hope, but the author transformed 
her anxiety into passion for making the world a safer place for children and vulnerable 
adults. The book also provides a rich source of information for those interested in the 
history of notable Minnesota families. The writing is compelling and worth taking to heart."
