really liked it

Neo-Victorian historical novel set during the time of the Crimean War. The novel focuses on two young cousins, one who runs off and volunteers as a nurse on the battlefield, the other (who is much more of a traditional Victorian woman) who must journey to the Crimea when her cousin disappears. The story also includes flashbacks to the young women's childhoods, which provides added depth to the story. A solid writing style, well-written historical detail, and interesting characters make this an entertaining read.
