I loved this book so much, couldn't put it down a second book after Ellie's Pride....both books fantastic, and if you are like me, I like to read the first book first. This author has a great way of writing to keep the story flowing, and not a lot of unnecessary words. If you like this era ,this is the story for you. It is a shame that this author is no longer alive to give us the pleasure she has done with all her work.....read her stories please.

A very enjoyable read, hard to put down. Set around world war 1, a story about Connies struggle to survive, she trained as a nurse and was a truly courageous lady considering the hardships for woman in those times. I read this book in a very short time found it such a good read. would recommend this book.
