Florence Nightingale, Lillian Wald, and Margaret Sanger not only revolutionized nursing, their work revolutionized health care. They were called Angels of Mercy, but these women were so much more.

They realized that health was a public issue, a public need, a public responsibility, and their accomplishments as reformers have had a lasting impact on human health. Through diaries, letters and memoirs of these fascinating people, Pippa White explores how they were led to their callings, their challenges....
