A hospital is bombed directly in 1941 England killing nurses, doctors, wounded soldiers, and even a maternity floor with newborn babies and their mother’s die! Why would they bomb a hospital! Shouldn’t they value that they even killed some of their own wounded soldiers that were captured?
Jo & Moira were best friends and nurses who normally worked together. However, this one time they were separated and Moira was sent up to the Maternity ward which was in the upper levels. Jo was in Casualty on the first floor. Jo knew she had to help the survivors, but she also needed to find her friend.
Moira is severely wounded with a head wound, but at least Jo was able to get her out and find her a doctor.
Jo and Moira lives drastically change after this bombing. They both resume in nursing, but in totally different aspects and they split apart. It’s as though they need to grow up and discover who they are as individuals.
The author creates a tremendous insight into the war and what the nurses must have had to endure and the pain of what they seen! The sounds and the plot twists are phenomenal which you will not be able to put this book down!
I just kept reading and reading because the characters felt like they were in the room with me and I was feeling and experiencing their emotions with the things they were seeing and doing. The exhaustion and sadness, but the joy of life was so poignant and strong as well!
I definitely will read more books by this author and I recommend this book to everyone! I would
definitely give it more than 5; stars if I could!
I received an advanced copy from NetGalley and these are my willingly given thoughts and opinions.
This book is truly amazing, Captivating and a PageTurner!
