Wives of War by Soraya M Lane blurb

Book review by HelenWow! What a story! It is very emotional as three women become nurses during World War II and see things that they will never ever forget and go through emotional trauma, but they save lives and help soldiers through so much. Wow again! This is a story that I can highly recommend. There will be tears and yes, there are a lot of places that will make you smile, I didn’t want to put this one down.

Scarlet comes from a wealthy family. She is engaged to Thomas when she decides to become a nurse and help where she can but she is also on the search for Thomas. No one has heard from him in months and she is nothing if not determined to find him.

Ellie is an Irish born happy go lucky girl who comes from a hard working family on the farm wants to help and do her bit. Her mother is a midwife and nursing is in her blood but is she really prepared for what she will go through?

Scarlet and Ellie meet at the train station on their way to an adventure that will see them go through a lot of changes, they become best friends fast and are always there for each other through thick and thin. I think war time friendships are so wonderful.

Lucy wants to be a doctor but will do nursing first. She is strong and reliable and learns everything she can but she keeps to herself a bit more than the others.
When Scarlet and Ellie get to Normandy amid the fighting, the bombing and the canvas hospital they meet the seemingly invincible Lucy. Lucy has already seen so much in her short time there but the trio become fast friends. And as each of them journey through events that would make most people faint and runaway these woman help and support each other and their patients. They meet the men who will become their heroes, although their journey to HEAs take some time and fears of them not making it home are ever in their thoughts.

I don’t want to give a lot away but I do highly recommend that you read this book. I found it so very moving and compelling, I still have tears while writing this review. Ms Lane has written a beautiful story that shows such strength, and the passion and character that these women and men had during such very hard times but also that true love can blossom. Thank you, Ms Lane for a story that I will not forget.

    1. It certainly sounds like an interesting read. They would have gone through a lot serving as they did during the war.

  2. It does sound like something I would enjoy :)

  3. That really sounds like an emotional story.

    1. It does, doesn't it? Probably because it is set during the world war.

  4. It seems the older the get, the more fascinated I am with history and the things that have happened in the past. This is a story I definitely look forward to grabbing and getting into. Hugs...

    1. It sounds like a very well written story too.

  5. I've seen good things about this one from a few folks now. Sounds like a winner!
