For more than 25 years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993 to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out lifesaving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

I have no words! What an incredible human. What he and all of the medical personnel in conflict zones do is just awe inspiring.

Set during England's bloody and brutal War of the Roses, this is the second novel in an epic historical fiction series. If you liked Conn Iggulden's Stormbird, you will love Toby Clements' Kingmaker novels. October 1463. England is a divided nation. In the north the Lancastrian king struggles to hold power while in the south the princes of the house of York prepare for war.

Would you be willing to try another one of Wanda McCaddon’s performances?

Yes

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was unbelievably dull but the narrator has a nice reading style

Any additional comments?

I dont think I'll ever try a D H Lawrence novel again based on this book.
