Publisher Description

In World War I, every act of courage counted…

Angelina Green never knew her mother, who left her in a cardboard box by the East London docks on a freezing November night when she was a tiny baby. Saved by a local orphanage, she knows she owes her life to the kindness of others. And she’s determined to repay her debt by working as a nurse.

Strong, kind and patient, Angelina is a natural on the ward. But when war breaks out in 1914 and she is sent to The Front, her courage is tested like never before…

As war rages around her, a chance meeting with a familiar soldier sends Angelina’s whole world into turmoil. Can she hold her nerve, save the men around her – and protect her heart?

Don’t miss this emotional story of one woman’s remarkable courage in the face of the Great War.

About the author

Born in Bristol of Welsh parentage, Rosie James lived in Somerset and was always a compulsive writer, her early enthusiasms kept alive by winning the occasional childhood prize, and much later by seeing her articles, short stories and romantic novels published.

She enjoyed theatre and eating out with friends, entertaining regularly at home – and when her children and grandchildren visited, the party really got going.
