From the best-selling author of The Secret Orphan comes her brand-new unpauseable historical fiction novel!
A journey into war, but not one she’ll take alone....
Orphan Kitty Pattison is young, naïve and ready to do her bit for the war effort when she volunteers with the Red Cross and pledges to help those most in need. It’s one of the most nerve-wracking moments of her life, but then she meets fellow volunteers Joan Norfolk and Trixie Dunn, and a bond of friendship is forged in the fire of life on the wards during the Blitz.
Days are spent nursing injured soldiers back to life, and nights are spent anticipating bombs falling from the sky and then trawling through the wreckage to save who she can, but the light and laughter she finds with Jo and Trix see Kitty through the darkest hours.
And when Kitty starts growing closer to handsome Canadian Doctor Michael McCarthy, it’s her friends who help her to find the courage to realise that no matter what has happened or what is to come, we all deserve love....
This stunning new historical novel from the internationally best-selling The Secret Orphan takes listeners on an emotional journey and follows in the footsteps of the brave women who volunteered with the Red Cross during the Second World War.
