As many of you know, I’m a big fan of the World War I era, so when J’nell Ciesielski asked me to read her novel for endorsement, I was happy to oblige. What many of you, who have had the chance to read it, discovered is an Amazing tale. A woman with a strong heart and fierce determination and a capable man with a will of iron and a compassionate hearts. Set within the backdrop of war, social change, and human depravity, these two characters shine with the hope of faith, love, and internal strength.
About the Book:
The ideal lady wears lace, speaks quietly, and never under any circumstances fixes an automobile. But Gwyn Ruthers has never cared two snaps about being the ideal lady. With the war to end all wars exploding across the English Channel, she leaves behind her restrictive life as a chauffer’s daughter to serve in an all-female ambulance unit in France. She’s not about to let her social status or gender prevent her from serving her country. Not even a handsome captain can distract her from her mission. Most of the time.
Captain William Crawford wouldn’t wish the ravages of war on any man, much less the captivating woman who insists on driving into battle instead of staying safely at home. He can’t deny that the troops need more medical help, but not when it puts innocent women in danger. How can he lead his men against the Jerries while worrying about Gwyn’s safety?
Bound together by circumstances, Gwyn and William can’t stop the love growing between them. Can their relationship survive, or will it become another casualty of war?
Here’s what I have to say about this fantastic edition to the WWI-era novels.
