Publisher's Summary

An inspiring story everyone should know...and will never forget! Based on historical fact, this captivating novel tells the story of the legendary Edith Cavell, a British nurse whose duties as a healer clashed with the demands of a ruthless occupying regime during World War I.

At the request of a brilliant, hot-headed surgeon, Edith went from London to Brussels to create Belgium's first school of nursing. At the height of her success, the German army marched into neutral Belgium and took over her hospital and school.

Knowing the dangers of working against the repressive and brutal control of the German occupiers, Edith joined the Resistance movement. Her life was then plunged into the dangerous and clandestine world of the Belgian Underground, where she became a key link in the rescuing of Allied soldiers separated from their units. For nine months, this quiet, religious nurse went about saving over a thousand soldiers under the very noses of the German command.

"Patriotism is not enough." - Edith Cavell

This book is the British edition of Fatal Decision: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse by Terri Arthur.

    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those books that keeps you driving around the block, or keeps your neighbors worried about why you are sitting in the car in the driveway. I found it totally compelling. I didn't want it to end. It would make a great movie. As a nurse, I loved the medical aspects of it, but rest assured, you do not need to have any medical background to enjoy this book. I look forward to more by this author. Do yourselves a favor and listen to this one. I'm sure I will again, and I seldom say/do that.
