Publisher's Summary

In war time, the rules of love change….

1854. Britain is fighting a gruesome war. There has been no news of Lucy Gray since she eloped with handsome and impetuous Captain Charlie Harvington and embarked with him to the Crimea.

Dorothea Gray will risk anything to heal the rift with her little sister and bring her home safe. She determines to join Florence Nightingale and the other courageous women travelling to the battlefield hospitals as nurses. She will not rest until she finds her sister.

Lucy, however, is on a very different journey, a journey through tragedy, trauma and true love. But neither sister is prepared for the challenges they will face, the passion they will each taste and the simple fact that they might never see one another again….

A spellbinding and exquisite tale of courage, adventure and love. Prepare to be swept of your feet!

    "A Surprisingly Different Story"

    When I downloaded this book I was expecting the usual wartime romance and at first that's what it appeared to be. It was so much more than that and I found myself being drawn into the story. I knew nothing about the Crimean War apart from the famous Florence Nightingale. The author obviously did A lot of research of the period and this is not a frivolous romance. On the negative side I found parts of Lucy's story slightly far fetched and a little long winded at times. The narration at first I found slightly annoying but as I got into the story I thought it was excellent. On the whole I really enjoyed the book and will read more by Gill Paul.
