    When battlefield nurse Bess Crawford returns from France for a well-earned Christmas leave, she finds a bruised and shivering woman huddled in the doorway of her London residence. The woman has nowhere to turn, and propelled by a firm sense of duty, Bess takes her in.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Indeed yes, I'd recommend it as a good read with a plot that surprises and at the same time has wonderful descriptions of landscapes and people.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The psychology of loss: loss of sister, loss of husband's love, loss of wife's trust, loss of parents, loss of life, loss of identity. The effects of war on the men who fought it and the women who loved them.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does all the voices very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was struck and moved by the honesty of one of the characters who tells his story even though it brings shame upon him and the possibility of great loss.
