I continue to be impressed at the bravery of the women who volunteered years of their time to be nurses or ambulance drivers during WWI. In this 2nd book of the trilogy I am again reminded of the portions (or the war) and places (Croatia, Serbia, etc.) of WWI that we do not learn about in school or really much of anywhere.

But I think Leo's romance is unwise and probably doomed. We'll see what happens in the 3rd installment!!

This is the second book of the Lenora Saga. It is 1914 and Germany and Britain are now at war. Lenora’s adventures continue as she returns to Europe as a member of FANY to help care for the wounded. Will she find her true love, Sasha again? A story of war and also love and friendship. An enjoyable read!

This suffered slightly for being the middle book of a trilogy, but it was still gripping. The story opens with Leo, Victoria and Tom back in England and Ralph still in Serbia. Tom heads out to rejoin Ralph and the pair get mixed up in the outbreak of war. Escaping in the nick of time they sign up with the same British Army battalion: Ralph as an officer, and Tom initially as a war artist. Meanwhile Leo and Vicky wait anxiously to be sent across the Channel to nurse and hear that their old friend ...more

This is second of a triology. There were too many plots and characters for one book, but seemed right for a triology. Unfortunately, I jumped into the middle, so will have to find the first -- then last;)
Like the first one, a fun, romantic read with a WWI twist. Ready for the third & final volume to see who lives, who dies, & who ends up with whom. ...more

Not quite as good as the first in this series, but still quite interesting to see the characters develop.

This was a nice easy quick read and continued the story of Victoria and Leo. I'm looking forward to finishing the series with the next book.
