Congratulations to Carrie Howse, whose new book has just been published by emp3books (2013). The Sound of Silence is the first part of Carrie’s planned trilogy about her family’s life, starting with her great grandparents in the East End of London in the nineteenth century and charting the impact of the spread of urban development in the twentieth century on her own English rural community.
Carrie was awarded a PhD at the University of Gloucestershire in 2004 for her thesis on ‘The Development of Rural District Nursing in Gloucestershire, 1880-1925’, supervised by Melanie Ilic and Charles More. Following the award of her PhD, Carrie continued to research nursing history in the UK and abroad and has had numerous articles published on this topic, including in Nursing Times, Nursing Standard, Nursing History Review and Women’s History Review. Carrie’s thesis was also subsequently published in book form by Reardon Publishing in 2008. Her contribution to nursing history has been recognised through a number of awards.
We look forward to reading more about Carrie’s family history!
