If you have followed the Nightingale series at all, you have gotten the chance to really get to know these three nurses fighting to save our boys in WWII. While you don’t need to read them in order to enjoy each novel, I believe you’ll have a stronger appreciation for the depth of characterization-especially for our heroine, Kay.
Kay is the quintessential nurse with a string of boys at every base. To uncover the deep-seated desires she has buried away in her heart and the hurt from her past made my heart hurt for her.
Roger is one of those heroes that has this, almost a persona, of being a great and godly guy-and he is, but he certainly dealt with his own sense of struggles from his past clouding his worldview. There is a certain theme to the book that makes the reader realize that the influence from our past, be it good or bad, has a strong influence on our present and often in the choices we make. How are we influencing those significant people in our lives?
The romance is rocky and difficult against the backdrop of the WWII landscape. But I, as always, appreciate the history layered so well with the characterization and romance of the characters and their lives.
Great to see returning characters from previous books and get to know our current hero and heroine all the better. Thumbs up reading!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to Litfuse for my copy to review.
