Product description

The Second World War is raging abroad when 18-year-old Kitty decides it’s time to do her bit. So she joins the VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) as a nurse, going to work in the military hospitals of southern England. Helping the injured soldiers on the wards, Kitty sees the grisly effects of war at close hand – notably the casualties of Dunkirk. But the move from her comfortable, safe home environment to the harsh world of a wartime hospital will teach her a great deal about life and relationships…

    This was another amazing book from the best series ever invented!! Please read it! It’s a fascinating perspective from World War Two. You really get to know just how horrible the evacuation of Dunkirk was. The WW2 nurses are often forgotten but Sue Reid has come to revive them! You see how life was in the Military Hospitals of Southern England. Please read this incredible story! I have – twice!

    This is a really, really, really good book. I read it in one night because i couldn’t put it down. I really enjoyed reading it. It is about Kitty a volunteer nurse who is sent to a hospital far from her family. She has to deal with injured soldiers, bombing and death every day. It is a great story with a hint of romance. I love this story, i would recommend for ages 12+
