I must have no hatred or bitterness’. But who was she, and what shaped her? Tracing Cavell’s Norfolk upbringing, her life as a Victorian governess, and her decision to become a nurse, Souhami’s sympathetic biography creates a rounded portrait of a woman always driven 'to do something useful, something for people’.
