Her nursing career deviates off course into the aged care sector to accommodate her personal life and calls for a variety of sacrifices and compromises to keep a career and family life on track. It's a journey that sees Sarah Jane dealing with childbirth, bereavement, divorce, miscarriage and child custody issues at the hands of a real life Casanova!
ARC reader comments:
After qualifying as an RGN Sarah Jane went on to become an accomplished and valued nurse, rapidly gaining nursing and management experience in the aged care sector whilst growing her family and dealing with personal challenges and tragedies. Sarah Jane, is brutally honest in her approach to sharing the dark and sometimes seemingly impossible life challenging events that could depict her as weak, however she always finds a way to pull herself and her precious family back to the surface to move on in the search of ‘better things to come’. I think it is her faith and total belief that there is always something better waiting to happen that demonstrates her positive approach to challenges and as she matures and becomes stronger on the back of adversity this personal trait is growing. Sarah Jane doesn’t see it in herself in these early books, but those who she helps unconditionally regularly remind her to ‘take some of her own advice’ and later she will!
