Summary

When all is lost, can she find the strength to start again?

It is 1916, and Edith Mellor is one of the few female surgeons in Britain. Compelled to use her skills for the war effort, she travels to the Somme, where she is confronted with the horrors at the front. Yet amongst the bloodshed on the battlefield, there is a ray of light in the form of the working-class Albert, a corporal from the East End of London. Despite being worlds apart, Edith and Albert can't deny their attraction to each other. But as the brutality of war reveals itself to Albert, he makes a drastic decision that will change both Edith and Albert's lives forever.

In the north of England, strong-minded Ada is left heartbroken when her only remaining son, Jimmy, heads off to fight in the war. Desperate to rebuild her shattered life, Ada takes up a position in the munition factory. But life deals her a further blow when she discovers that her mentally unstable sister, Beryl, is pregnant with her husband Paddy's child. Soon even the love of the gentle Joe, a supervisor at the factory, can't erase Ada's pain. An encounter with Edith's cousin, Lady Eloise, brings Edith into her life. Together, they realize, they may be able to turn their lives around....

All I Have to Give is a thrilling saga from Mary Wood, the best-selling author of Time Passes Time and Proud of You.

Disappointing

I found this book to have just too much doom and gloom, death, rape and heartache. I read until chapter chapter 22 without any love and happiness and then just gave up because it was depressing me.
I read other books by Mary wood and I was impressed though shocked by the descriptions.
Great narrative by Anne Dover

Brilliant

A wonderful story and read so very well by Anne Dover both describing life in England and the dreadful details of the First World War. The story ended happily but I do hope that Mary Wood will write a sequel - It would be lovely to hear that Edith found her daughters.
