Voyage of the Nightingale

The chronicle of the final voyage of the medical relief ship GSC Nightingale.


Consuela Hernandez
Lucy’s grandmother (Mexico)

A no-nonsense nurse and traditional curandera, Consuela is a force to be reckoned with. She is the mother of Lucy’s father Luis, who was killed in action during the Second Mexican War of Independence. Consuela legally adopted Lucy after Lucy’s mother, Molly, had an emotional breakdown and abandoned Lucy. Molly reappeared later, demanding that Lucy come with her out of the Mexican war zone and into America proper. Consuela denied Molly’s request and, more importantly, so did Lucy.

DEXTER unit #048992

Stacy and Sarah’s DEXTER unit for the first year. Linda’s depressive symptoms are deeper than just depression, and her care team has no idea just how deep into the world of mental illness this ailment will bring them.
