The passionate statistician Florence Nightingale ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
In this historical reenactment, Florence Nightingale uses applied statistics to disprove the medical assumptions of her day. Using fatality counts from the Crimean War, Nightingale develops a progressive series of statistical diagrams that reveal startling information: most soldiers did not die of their wounds, as reported, but in army hospitals from diseases related to poor hygiene. When further data shows army death rates twice that of the civilian population, Nightingale traces the cause to overcrowded, disease-ridden barracks.

"'Tomorrow the man I love is going to die; horribly, and in public. Only two other people ever knew of our love and they are both dead now; but there are circumstances which make it natural enough that I should spend the night before the altar-- praying for him.' Thus spoke Josiana Greenwood in 1496-- and through Josiana, the illegitimate descendant of Martin Reed, the family of the house was to be continued-- living through England's most turbulent period-- the Tudors, the Stuarts, the violence of Cromwell's wars"--Container.

"'At the age of seven I was a skillful pickpocket, I could sew neatly, write a tolerable hand, make a curtsy and a correct introduction, dance a little and play simple tunes on the harpsichord.' This was the London life of Felicity Hatton in 1740-- until chance sent her back to the House, first as a pauper, later to become its mistess-- a strange eccentric mistress whose choice of husband was as unorthodox as her manner of living"--Container.

"'It was in the first week of October in the year 1391 that I first came face to face with the man who owned me-- the man whose lightest word was to us, his villeins, weightier than the King's law or the edicts of our Holy Father--' So began the story of Martin Reed-- a serf whose resentment of his feudal lord finally flared into open defiance. Encouraged by the woman he loved, Martin Reed began a new life-- a life which was to culminate in the building of the House, and the founding of the dynasty who were to live there"--Container.

The residents of the Close were much concerned with crime - preventing it. With all those out-of-work teenagers on the nearby council estate hanging around, stealing, joy-riding, it was just as well that Paul Mathieson was setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. And there was Jenny's discovery, when she advertised flute lessons, that she could work up quite a nice little earner in a rather unexpected way. As the leafy street resounded to the efforts of the citizens to keep crime at bay, Jenny realised that it was her marriage rather than her property, that needed watching.
