From the Back Cover
North London, 1916. When Olivia Bone and Lieutenant Lucas Black shared a passionate kiss one summer's evening, it seemed as if their love might finally have a chance to bloom.
But their brief happiness is cut short when Lucas is sent to fight on the front line, leaving Livvie uncertain if she'll ever see him again. And after a chance encounter with one of Lucas's old flames, Livvie is left doubting whether an ex-factory girl like her will ever fit into his world - and wondering if she would be better off protecting her heart.
While her friends in London busy themselves with marriage plans and dreams of babies, Livvie returns to France, throwing herself into her work as a war nurse on the Western Front. But when two German prisoners are admitted at the hospital, the dangers of war suddenly feel much closer to home - and Livvie is forced to be braver than she has ever been before . . .
Can Livvie and Lucas find their way to a brighter future before the war tears them apart?

The author transports you back to a time and place that belongs to your grandparents or great grandparents era. Its a story of Social change, of war and the devastating loss of life , of grinding poverty in one of the worst street in London. Yet it is funny and sad and allows the reader an insight into the close community of salt of the earth people. It’s a love story. It’s a story of women’s role during the First World War and the terrible hardships that the soldiers endured and their injuries. But also the close friendships and companionships of ordinary people. It is a wonderful read, hard to put down. A thoroughly heartwarming exciting read that I would definitely recommend.
I'd recommend this to anybody who enjoys a bit of realism along with a really good story. I'm not going to give too much away, but, I will say, make sure you're not reading this in public if you don't like being seen crying! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would!
