  • A sweeping saga.

    This is a wonderfully written book about a young woman who joins the Red Cross to train as a nurse during WWII. IT is a unique setting for a historical book as I haven’t read one about Red Cross nurses. The supporting characters are well developed and I could picture them in my mind. I enjoyed the medical aspects of the book and it is surprising more soldiers didn’t die during WWII due to the lack of medical knowledge. We have certainly had a lot of improvements for infection control and burn care. The romance aspect of the book is interesting as it is not the be all or end all for Kitty. She is independent and wants to make something of herself and she decides to stay single so she can finish her nurses training. It’s crazy how women who married could not be a nurse in that era. My only issue is that this is book one of a series and it ends in the way that the next book will pick up from that exact spot. Therefore there is no closure to the storyline. I thank One More Chapter for inviting me to read this sweeping saga.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A historical romance

    I received a free e-arc through Netgalley. I imagine it was a bit exciting for women during the war who got to step over society's usual expectations for them to take on new roles. Kitty wants to help with the war effort as well as travel and explore the world after being orphaned at a young age. She meets Michael who was also orphaned and together they help piece people back together during the war.

  • WWII Orphans

    Kitty Pattison was raised by her Aunt and Uncle after her family died in an accident. Set in England during WWII Kitty is ready to join the Red Cross and do her part for the war. Along with Jo and Trix Kitty starts training to become a nurse. Kitty is a little unsure of her role in the war, At Kitty's first training station she meets Michael a Canadian doctor. Michael sees how hard Kitty works and her dedication to her job. Michael becomes interested in Kitty in a professional manner but with the intense time they spend together a special bond forms. I was interested in the country side that Kitty traveled through. I still can not believe all the countries that were engaged in the war and how it affected them all. This was a great introduction to Kitty and Michael and I am interested in seeing where book 2 takes them.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Red Cross Orphans

    What a lovely story, I just couldn't put it down. I have read all Glynis's book and I think this was the best, I look forward to the other books.

  • Part one...

    Kitty is a Red Cross nurse who meets Michael, a Canadian medic, in Birmingham. The story follows Kitty's nursing training and friendships as well as her developing relationship with Michael. Word of warning...the book ends with a cliff-hanger which brings it down to 4 stars

    Thanks for your feedback!
