This novel is about love and loss - set in 1940. The main character Maxine trains as a nurse and works in St Thomas Hospital in London which was damaged in the blitz. Rather mills and Boon she falls in love with a surgeon - who is not all he appears to be. She then takes a post with Barnardos and throws herself into helping children whose lives have been changed by the ravages of war.
Well written and would appeal to fans of Nadine Dorries. As you would expect it is hear wrenching but a thoroughly good read and well researched by the author.
