London, 1944. Two young nurses meet at a train station with a common purpose: to join the war effort. Scarlet longs for the chance to find her missing fiancé, Thomas, and to prove to her family—and to herself—that she’s stronger than everybody thinks. Nursing is in Ellie’s blood, but her humble background is vastly different from Scarlet’s privileged upbringing. Though Ellie puts on a brave face, she’s just as nervous as Scarlet about what awaits them in France.

In Normandy, the two friends soon encounter the seemingly unflappable Lucy. Scarlet and Ellie are in awe of her courage and competence, but the experienced nurse is well aware of the dangers of the job they’ve chosen—and even she is terrified they won’t make it home alive.

Pushed to their limits by the brutality of a world at war, Scarlet, Ellie and Lucy will need to rely on each other—and the power of their friendship—to survive.

Great book! The characters draw you in and take you on the journey of life with them. Well developed characters, a multi-level plot and just a genuine good feeling of friendship.

When newly minted nurses Scarlet and Ellie meet on the beginning of their journey to be part of the war effort during World War II, they instantly latch on to each other and become fast friends. They are thrust into the deep end as soon as they step foot into the field and must depend on each other to keep up their spirits against the horrible things they experience. Once they make it to Normandy, they make a third friend Lucy and try their best to stay strong and save as many as they can. Along the way, they take on life, love and loss.



  1. I really loved this story 🙂

    Have Fun

    • Me too Helen! Historical is not generally my favorite because I have a harder time getting drawn in and invested in the story, but this one was great. 🙂
