An ordinary girl,
an extraordinary profession,
and a family of secrets.
Small Secrets is a fictional coming of age story about country girl Leah Bingham, who begins nursing in a Melbourne hospital in the early 1970s.
Leah finds the training easier to handle than her family whose secrets continue to draw her back home as she gradually matures from timid country girl to confident young woman and nurse.
A funny, surprising, occasionally confronting glimpse into nursing...
