REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
I was charmed by this bit of historical romance, following the efforts of a young English lady to break free of her social fetters to contribute in the Great War. (It doesn’t hurt that such efforts might help put her near to her older brother’s best friend, a Scottish doctor posted near the front, and entirely unsuitable, of course.) Her position as an ambulance driver in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corp takes her into danger in France– and back into the sphere of a certain handsome surgeon she couldn’t forget. Just the right amount of history, brave heroine, forbidden love, and romantic tension make this an engaging read.
