Summary

The Forgotten Daughter by Mary Wood is the gripping first book in The Girls Who Went to War series.

From a tender age, Flora felt unloved and unwanted by her parents, but she finds safety in the arms of caring nanny Pru. But when Pru is cast out of the family home, under a shadow of secrets and with a young baby boy of her own to care for, it shatters little Flora. 

But over the years, Flora and Pru meet in secret - unbeknownst to Flora’s parents. Pru becomes the mother to Flora she never had, and Flora grows into a fine young woman. When Flora signs up to become a nurse with the St John’s ambulance, she begins to shape her life. But the drum of war beats loudly, and Flora’s world is turned upside down when she receives a letter asking her to join the Red Cross in Belgium. 

With the fate of the country in the balance, it’s a time for bravery. Flora’s determined to be the strong woman she was destined to be. But with horror, loss and heartache on her horizon, there's a lot for young Flora to learn....

Good story but a little predictable

I enjoyed this book, I love a good romantic story so this fit the bill although it was a tad predictable.
The only thing I didn’t like was the narrator, as a whole she was good but when voicing Pru she sounded like a 70 year old Yorkshire woman when the character was supposed to be in her 20’s and 30’s. The voice didn’t match the character at all.
Oh well I still enjoyed it and would buy another.

Lovely story

I enjoyed this book very much as it had all the elements I want, love,excitement,drama and sadness. Maybe a few to many rape and sex parts though.
