My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An extraordinary tale of heroism and sacrifice set during The Great War. Gwyn Ruthers is an ambitious young woman determined to take an active part in the war. When she learns that women are being trained to drive ambulances … she’s ready to sign up! Captain William Crawford is following in his father’s footsteps, leading men into battle. He has no business taking an interest in a woman when his life hangs in the balance with every battle, but he can’t keep the young woman auto mechanic out of his thoughts. When she shows up on the battlefield in France, he’d do anything in his power to keep her safe … if only she’d let him.

Well written, beautifully described, and emotionally charged, this book is one you can’t put down. You’ll feel the earth shake under your feet, smell the mud clinging to every boot, and taste the fear that’s never far from the scene of a battle. A must-read novel for anyone who enjoys a story steeped in true historical details behind strong, engaging characters.
