Overview

'Theda hadn't given much thought to what would happen after she became a nurse. But by the time she finished her first year and was studying for her exams, she was coming up to twenty-one and there was a war on...'

Against the odds, miner's daughter Theda Wearmouth succeeds in gaining a nursing place at Newcastle Hospital. By the time war breaks out, she is newly qualified and working in a children's ward, a role she adores.

She also finds herself being courted by a young soldier. Only Theda's dreams of becoming Mrs Alan Price are shattered when he is killed in action before he can make good on his promise to marry her.

Broken-hearted, Theda finds herself re-assigned to a special unit of the hospital dealing with German prisoners of war. Her duty is clear. But will she be able to cope with nursing the very men her fiancé died fighting...?

A wonderful story and a great look into nurses' training at that time. She has a big decision when she is transfered into the German prisoners' ward after her fiance is killed in WW11 over Germany. A read that I hated to reach the end!

A great read. A great follow up to the Nurse series. The era; fellowship, caring group of nurses, their antics, horrors and heartache that comes with war was well documented in this book
