"Like Vanity Fair crossed with Poldark...Stunning epic." (Claudia Carroll)
"A terrific adventure story, full of romance and atmospheric detail - a great escapist read." (Liz Trenow)
"No Place for a Lady is a gripping historical read about two sisters caught up in the Crimean War: one a young bride following her soldier husband, the other her sister who signs up as a nurse to try and rescue her sister. It's a story of love, both romantic and sibling, against a backdrop of a vividly created historical setting, with an ending which is at once uplifting and heartbreaking I couldn't put it down." (Julia Williams)
"A galloping good story." (Natasha McEnroe, director of the Florence Nightingale Museum)

History / drama / romance / mystery - it's got it all
This was a fascinating book, based largely on truth but cleverly interwoven into a modern day sub plot.
I learnt a lot about the Russian Revolution without it being too 'biographical'.
The first part is very much romantic historical but the second part left me desperate to read more as the book moved forward in time and the mystery developed, leaving me wondering how it was going to link the sub plot with the main story - and with real life events.

An unexpected jewel with refreshing perspectives
Rarely do I read a love story that expresses the perplex inner thoughts that many of us feel but never say. I love that her characters were human, made mistakes and had serious regrets yet, somehow chose to find whatever hope, light and love they could in the situations they were in. She bravely wrote about the "gray" we feel when faced with the black and white definition of what love should look like vs how many beautiful shades and layers it creates.. some with which we are unable to outwardly explain or describe... Hauntingly sad in parts but, interwoven with a poignant story about strength, perseverance, loyalty, and of course love

I have always liked historical fiction but these two narrators have brought this book to life!
Although you think you might already know this story, the twists are delightfully surprising and unexpected.
I am going to pick this for my next book club that I get to host (six months from now) because not only is it a great story, but will make for a very interesting book club discussion!
