Publisher's Summary

A gripping wartime drama of love and loss, perfect for fans of Soraya M. Lane, Daughters of the Night Sky and Kathryn Hughes.  

As a teenager in Chicago, May always dreamed of travelling the world. So when she falls in love with George Turner, she can’t wait to return to London as his wife. Two beautiful daughters follow, but George isn’t the husband he promised to be. Ten years on, May is wondering if she’s made a terrible mistake.  

The Great War has been declared in Europe, and all around, brave young men are being called up to serve. George, banned from conscription himself, has taken to the bottle, and May suspects he’s seeing other women, too. He even sends her beloved daughters away to school. She misses them terribly every day.  

Then May meets veteran nurse Elsie, who persuades May to join the war effort. May knows nothing of nursing - it will be difficult, dangerous work, but her heart is telling her it’s the right thing to do and the only way to carve out a life for herself and her daughters away from George.  

But when George does the unthinkable, May’s children are put at risk. Miles away on the front line and unable to reach them, will May be reunited with her little girls before it’s too late?

Trying to get through it

The first book was great and I loved the reader. That being said I purchased the second installment of the series. I am about three hours into listening and it has been truly painful. The reader is atrocious. He voice for the men actually hurts my ears and she has no clue when it comes to speaking with an English accent so its like listening to a poorly performed cartoon. But... poor reader or not, the contents of this story are just very amateurish. Pitiful young but pure and beautiful wife, mean old fat husband. Really? Smh. Just trying to get through this one.

Wonderful

I throughly enjoyed this book, started a little slow but that was needed for introduction of May’s life but after that I couldn’t put it down, laughed and definitely cried, it identified the life of nurses at the front and made you realise how much they contributed to the war effort, loved this author and will read more of her work.
