In the summer of 1940, Clare Dillon is a V.A.D. in an English military hospital, nursing the wounded as the bombs fall.

"Arguably the best of all writers of hospital fiction." Nursing Times

Twenty-year-old Clare must rise to the challenge of nursing in wartime. Whether giving comfort to a dying soldier, or assisting in a birth during an air raid, she has to remain clear-headed and professional.

Clare is not only dealing with problems at the hospital. She is also worried for the safety of her brothers, who are both in the forces. Then the Dunkirk evacuation changes her world forever.

With the medical emergencies and bombings, it's no wonder Clare doesn't have time to think about the attention she's getting from young medical officer Joe Slaney. But she surprises herself when news about Joe makes her face up to what she really wants for the future.

A gripping, bittersweet story about the courage and determination of young V.A.D. nurses in the Second World War.
