A story based on Theda a young nurse during the war.
It dips in her family and home life and goes from Theda training to be a nurse under strict matron who ruled the hospital, until her career progressed as life changed due to circumstances .
a well written most enjoyable book which covers so much and so many emotions .

Surprisingly good and it brought back a lot of memories of my family post war and some of the activities that were important to our family. A couple of years ago a train I was travelling on stopped at Durham en route to Edinburgh and I was enchanted with the rolling countryside. The people are tough and resilient and also very stubborn so the author has drawn out her characters extremely well.

Not bad. Kept me reading to the end. Lots of mistakes - even two on one page. Did anyone proof read this before printing?
