I devoured this series as a little girl. Curiously, I never really wanted to be a nurse, but I did envy her uniform, which sounded just fabulous! Reading them as an adult, I find that the story holds up very well, so long as you keep it in the context of its time. Lots of WWII era propaganda in the first few books, but I find it enjoyable and sweet. I don't know that young girls today would relate to this series now, but I'm still trying to collect the entire series!
