it was amazing

This standalone novel concludes the "Great War Great Love" series, and I'm sorry to see it end. As a whole, the series has been a fascinating look at a time period we don't read about much. Ella Neumann, the daughter of Germans who emigrated to the USA long before the war, is a volunteer nurse in France. Having been a medical student at home before the war, she hopes her experience will land her a coveted place as a surgical nurse, but her supervisor doesn't trust her because of her ethnic background, and gives her the least-desired jobs. Ella's encounter with a prisoner of war and an enemy officer, coupled with her ability to speak German, put her in danger as well as allowing her to help others in unexpected ways. With edge-of-the-seat suspense, the story will captivate teen and adult readers alike. (Advance review copy received from author.)
