This is one book I would highly recommend to anyone who likes this time period
I enjoyed every page of this book. It was very hard for me to put down.
I had no idea that it is the story of Edith Cavell's heroic work in WW 1
I live in Canada and I had never known that one of our mountains is named after her.
