Falmouth author, Terri Arthur, will discuss her historical novel "Fatal Decision: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse" on Wednesday, October 10 at 7 PM at Jonathan Bourne Historical Center, 30 Keene Street, Old Bourne Village.
Ms. Arthur's new novel, based on fact, tells the powerfully moving story of the legendary Edith Cavell, a British nurse who started the first nurses' training school in Belgium when World War I broke out and the German army occupied the area. As her country disintegrated around her, she became key in the dangerous and clandestine world of the Belgian underground, frequently rescuing wounded soldiers all while relentlessly pursued by the German army.
Ms. Arthur holds a Bachelor of Science in education and biology, a diploma in nursing, and a MS in Health Business Management. She has worked as a staff nurse and educator in hospitals on the Cape and Plymouth and now manages a continuing education company for health care providers. She is the only nurse to have written a book about Nurse Cavell.
