WOW what a story so very emotional as three woman become nurses during World War 2 and see things that they will never ever forget and go through emotional trauma, but they save lives and help soldiers through so much. WOW again this is a story that I can highly recommend there will be tears and yes there are a lot of places that will make you smile, I didn’t want to put this one down.

Scarlet comes from a wealthy family she is engaged to Thomas when she decides to become a nurse and help where she can but she is also on the search for Thomas you see no one has heard from him in months and she is nothing if not determined to find him.

Ellie an Irish born happy go lucky girl who comes from a hard working family on the farm wants to help and do her bit, her mother is a midwife and nursing is in her blood but is she really prepared for what she will go through?

Scarlet and Ellie meet at the train station on their way to an adventure that will see them go through a lot of changes, they become best friends fast and are always there for each other through thick and thin I think war time friendships are so wonderful.

Lucy wants to be a Doctor but will do nursing first and she is strong and reliable and learns everything she can but she keeps to herself a bit more than the others.

When Scarlet and Ellie get to Normandy amid the fighting, the bombing and the canvas hospital they meet the seemingly invincible Lucy. Lucy has already seen so much in her short time there but the trio become fast friends. And as each of them journey through events that would make most people faint and runaway these woman help and support each other and their patients and they meet the men who will become their heroes, although their journey to HEAs take some time and fears of them not making it home are ever in their thoughts.

I don’t want to give a lot away but I do highly recommend that you read this book I found it so very moving and compelling, I still have tears while writing this review. MS Lane has written a beautiful story that shows such strength and the passion and character that these woman and men had during such very hard times but also that true love can blossom. Thank you MS Lane for a story that I will not forget.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
