Summary

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.

Dreadful narration, ruined a good book!

How on earth was Heather Wilds given the job of narrator? Her boring monotonous voice was painful to listen to. I couldn't even mange to get to the end of the first chapter. My computer speaks more "human" than this woman! Does she not understand that there should be a pause at the end of each sentance? This has got to be THE WORST NARRATED BOOK I have ever listened to.......and I've heard some dredful ones in the past but Heather Wilds goes to the top of my list of narrators who I never want to hear again......Absolutely dreadful!

Poor narrator

An average book which I actually enjoyed. However...

The narrator was poor. I have listened to other books she has read and I didn't enjoy them either. Sadly, a poor narrator is a detriment to a decent book. This happened in this case.

Also, this entire book was predictable. There was no real angst and, given the war setting, there should have been a lot. The end of each nurse's story was way too clean - if that's the right term. How did Scarlet ever find Thomas and meet James in the combat theater? Unbelievable!

All that being said, I enjoyed this as an interesting WWII story. I have a soft spot for military nurses as my mother served in WWII as a Navy nurse. If one just enjoys the story it's quite interesting.

Rather predictable

I was disappointed because I could guess every plot line in advance. Also some parts were quite drawn out and I kept wishing for the story to move forward.
