On Renfrew Street

(The second book in the Amherst Island Trilogy series)
A novel by

Glasgow, 1911. With her dreams of romance shattered, Ellen decides to forge her own destiny back where she started in Scotland. No longer the lass from the rail yards of Springburn, she returns to Glasgow as a young woman of means, to study at its prestigious School of Art, sponsored by the gallant and charming trustee, Henry McCallister. While she struggles to make her way in this sophisticated world, unrest is brewing...

When the First World War is declared, Ellen volunteers to serve with the Scottish Women's Hospital at Royaumont Abbey in France, as part of an all-women team under the indomitable Frances Ivens. There her courage will be tested as it never has before... and soon she will find herself having to choose between love and duty, desire and bravery. As the war rages through France, Ellen will learn just what she is made of... and where her heart belongs.

Written by bestselling author Kate Hewitt, this is the second book in the Amherst Island Trilogy, for fans of the Anne of Green Gables series as well as historical sagas.

UPDATED: Unfortunately an unedited edition of the book that was being used as a placeholder was accidentally sent out by Amazon for the first few days of release, as well as for all preorders. This has been remedied and the correct, copyedited edition is now available. If you bought the book then, and it contains errors, please remove from your Kindle and re-download. I apologise for the hassle!
