All’s fair in love and war …
1854. England is in the grip of a gruesome war.
Lucy Harvington, ill-educated beyond how to be a wife, has travelled to the Crimea with her handsome and impetuous officer husband Charlie.
As the day of battle dawns she can only pray her husband survives. If he doesn’t, what will become of her?
Dorothea Gray, volunteer nurse at the Westminster Hospital, is determined to follow her little sister Lucy to the front and to serve her country alongside her heroine Florence Nightingale and the pioneering nurses already risking their lives.
But neither sister could possibly have known the horrors they are about to witness – the courage, the cowardice, the danger – and the excitement – nor could they have guessed the risks they must take, the passion they will taste, and the simple fact that they may never see one another again …
I was given an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I found this book superb, it is mainly to do with what the women did in the war and follows Lucy Harvington who travels to the Crimea with her husband Charlie who is an officer, what she has to witness is truly horrifying and the conditions she has to live in are awful, the other part of the story focuses on her Lucy’s sister Dorothea, who is a nurse and she follows her sister to help serve her country. Her story I found fascinating, though some parts are awful as you can expect. I love the way Dorothea was with her patients and she meets Florence Nightingale which was interesting to read about. After reading this book, I have decided I would like to read more books about our women who served in the war. Such a brilliant read, I couldn’t put down.
