Description

The USA Today best seller!

Young nurse Gemma is struggling with the traumas she has witnessed through her job. Needing to escape from it all, Gemma agrees to help renovate a rundown farmhouse in Doullens, France, a town near the Somme. There, in a boarded-up cupboard, wrapped in old newspapers, is a tin that reveals the secret letters and heartache of Alice Le Breton, a young volunteer nurse who worked in a casualty clearing station near the front line.

Set in the present day and during the horrifying years of the war, both women discover deep down the strength and courage to carry on in even the most difficult of times. Through Alice's words and her unfailing love for her sweetheart at the front, Gemma learns to truly live again.

This epic historical novel will take your breath away.

Inspiring

I read a lot of both non-fiction and historical fiction about WWI during the 100th anniversary of the War. This book is a continuation of that project. The story is about a modern-day trauma nurse who volunteers to help her father renovate a run down farm house in Doullene, France. She uncovers the story of Alice, a nurse, during the Somme offensive. The story is divided between WWI and the present time. I was primarily interested in the WWI nursing part of the story. I found the book most enjoyable. The book is nine hours and forty-two minutes. Stephanie Beattie does a good job narrating the book. This is my first experience with the author, Deborah Carr, and the narrator, Stephanie Beattie.
