Synopsis

'This modest, forthright and humorous account of a grand American woman and nurse is as refreshing as a cool summer breeze from across her own beloved Puget Sound' - Robert Traver, "Book Week". 'Told with a lively, warm appreciation of people and situations. There is inspiration here and testimony of a job well done and a crowded, rounded life' - "Kirkus". 'It is a nurse's Odyssey...It is full of American color, profound in the simple manner - we'll say it is a good book and not try to say how magnificently good it is' - "Saturday Review of Literature".In her later years, while World War II was raging, Lora Wood Hughes wrote about her busy and interesting life as a nurse. The reissue of "No Time for Tears", long out of print, restores her voice to human memory. During a career that took her to Hawaii, Montana, Washington, and Canada, she never stopped caring for people, and some of them would have tried anyone's patience. Among her "cases" described in lively detail here are a stingy dowager and a measle-ridden prostitute who causes her to be quarantined in a house of ill fame.

The "crazy patterns" of her rich and humane life continued into World War II when, instead of resting in her home on Puget Sound, she supervised a Red Cross hospital unit.
