This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

November, 1941. She’s never even seen the ocean before, but Eva Cassidy has her reasons for making the crossing to Hawaii, and they run a lot deeper than escaping a harsh Michigan winter. Newly enlisted as an Army Corps nurse, Eva is stunned by the splendor she experiences aboard the steamship SS Lurline; even more so by Lt. Clark Spencer, a man she is drawn to but who clearly has secrets of his own. But Eva’s past - and the future she’s trying to create - means that she’s not free to follow her heart. Clark is a Navy intelligence officer, and he warns her that the United States won’t be able to hold off joining the war for long, but nothing can prepare them for the surprise attack that will change the world they know.

In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Eva and her fellow nurses band together for the immense duty of keeping the American wounded alive. And the danger that finds Eva threatens everything she holds dear. Amid the chaos and heartbreak, Eva will have to decide whom to trust and how far she will go to protect those she loves.

Set in the vibrant tropical surroundings of the Pacific, The Lieutenant’s Nurse is an evocative, emotional WWII story of love, friendship, and the resilient spirit of the heroic nurses of Pearl Harbor.

Nice story but irritating narrator!!

Nice enjoyable story but didn't like the narrator! Her voice was very irritating at times, overly gushy and and her voice for the lead male was a forced and unatural male voice.

Time travel to WWII through the eyes of a nurse

"The Lieutenant's Nurse" is a lovely rendering of an inconvenient love between two witnesses of war in Hawai'i. Sarah Ackerman describes with stark realism the first days of trauma between soldiers, civilians and the nurses that tended to the wounded after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. Vivid passages paint the scene of a Hawai'i that casts the romantic spell of the period and combined with the horror experienced by the greatest generation.

Good listen... looked forward to every chapter!

Enjoyed this book very much! Narrator was excellent in my opinion except for the switch to male voices. Will definitely recommend.
