Nora Was a Nurse

Title: Nora Was a Nurse
Author: Peggy Gaddis
Publisher: Unibook
Copyright: 1953
Illustrator: Robert Maguire
Review available

Illustration Magazine, issue #3, pages 42-3, lists Robert Maguire as the illustrator for this title published by Macfadden, issue numbers 35-107 and 35-121; this is the same illustration, though with some of the background cropped out.

“Your reasons for coming to Shellville are your own affair and I have no desire to know them,” Nurse Nora Courtney told the new young doctor—but she knew she lied both to him and to herself. Everything about Doctor Owen Baird interested her for she knew she was hopelessly and passionately in love with him. And when beautiful Lillian Halstead set her cap for the young doctor, Nora realized she must make him see her as a desirable woman as well as an efficient nurse. How Nora achieved her purpose and what these three handsome young people made of their lives is thrilling reading, growing to an unexpected and satisfying climax.
