What a great start to a new series. First I have to say the author did a wonderful job in her research. My 16-year-old is a WWII buff and even read it and said, Mom she is on it!" Neither one of us could put the book down the characters drawn you into their story so immensely you do not want to put the book down until the end. The tension building between both characters keeps one on edge of their seat. I learned more about the nurses than I could from any history class. I want to read more of this series and my son does as well. Keep in mind he doesn't like to read much so this is a very good thing.
