Clawr | Cover of Betsy Cadwaladyr: A Balaclava Nurse

Betsy Cadwaladyr: A Balaclava Nurse by Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

An Autobiography of Elizabeth Davis

Elizabeth Davis – known in Wales as Betsy Cadwaladyr – was a ladies' maid from Meirionnydd who travelled the world and gained fame as a nurse during the Crimean War. She was a dynamic character who broke free of the restrictions placed on women in Victorian times to lead a life of adventure. Journeying to many exotic parts of the globe, she came into contact with international events in the horrors of the field hospital at Balaclava, where she served under Florence Nightingale.

Betsy's story is a unique record – the authentic voice of an early nineteenth century Welsh working woman recalling the events and experiences of an action-packed life.

Honno is a publisher well worth following. It concentrates on the work of women of Welsh descent or connection, a sort of Celtic Virago, and is developing a very impressive modern fiction list. Writers in Oxford Newsletter

I think there might be a bit of a fight the next time that we get something from Honno and I'd certainly like to thank them for sending this book to the Bookbag
