God, how sad was this book! Despite this, anyway, I liked it. I made me think that not even 100 years passed from the beginning of 1st world war, and my granparents on dad's side lived it on their skin. I just can't imagine how terrible it was, I guess it's difficult for us. Reading about Maisie in that tent made me shiver, those girls were really strong, and it's awful to think to all those poor lads who left for the unknow and the death in the name of their country.
Anyway, back to the book... as I said, I liked it even if there's something about Maisie that I did not got a grip of. Maybe it's just I decided she deserved some happiness which seems to be close but not as handy as I would.
Last but not least, the book is well written, and the author for sure made a lot of reasearch and study about that time, about war and nursing. This made the book really enjoyable.
I guess not right now, but in the next future I'll read more about Maisie.
