  1. £5 Just to begin with … for my lovely daughter

  2. 36 pounds if you’ll name the character Devora Herskovitz in honor of my friend, a mother of five, who wished her whole life to become a nurse and worked very hard to raise her children and complete her education. Devora received a cancer diagnosis just days after completing her training. In the year since graduating nursing school, she has undergone surgery, chemo and radiation and is now (finally!) (to her great thrill) practicing palliative and pediatric care in Dallas, Texas. Devora is the grandchild of holocaust survivors…it would be interesting to see you include an Orthodox Jewish nurse in your story of London’s East End! Entirely historically appropriate! Please ?!
