Tilda Shalof. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, Ltd; 2007. 311 pages, $26.95
In The Making of a Nurse, Tilda Shalof chronicles more than her training as a nurse; she addresses her early years as a caretaker of her mother, her time in Israel after graduating from nursing, and the disruption of her life on her return. Her work as a nurse provided the stability to bring her life back into balance. This book contains stories from hospitals to home care, giving a glimpse of the medical world and the life of a nurse.
