Read Wives Of War Online Free -
London, 1944. Two young nurses meet at a train station with a common purpose: to join the war effort. Scarlet longs for the chance to find her missing fiancé, Thomas, and to prove to her family—and to herself—that she’s stronger than everybody thinks. Nursing is in Ellie’s blood, but her humble background is vastly different from Scarlet’s privileged upbringing. Though Ellie puts on a brave face, she’s just as nervous as Scarlet about what awaits them in France.
In Normandy, the two friends soon encounter the seemingly unflappable Lucy. Scarlet and Ellie are in awe of her courage and competence, but the experienced nurse is well aware of the dangers of the job they’ve chosen—and even she is terrified they won’t make it home alive.
Pushed to their limits by the brutality of a world at war, Scarlet, Ellie and Lucy will need to rely on each other—and the power of their friendship—to survive.

I know this author writes primarily romance stuff, but hey, I took a chance on this one because I generally like WWII novels, and hoped the war would mitigate an overdose of sweetness and light. Well, to some extent it did, but there were other issues besides romance...
Lots of historical errors,...

According to the description it was supposed to hit right in my sweet spot... WW2 historical novel, with nurses as the main focus. This so...

I'm a fan of both WWII and romance novels so I had high hopes for this book. However, I was disappointed. Lack of character development and 'insta' love made for a book that read like poorly written YA. Lots of potential but fails to deliver.

Stories of love among nurses at war
As a nurse, and reader of all things WWII, I chose this book as a Kindle First book for the month. It was a bit of a disappointment, with young women falling in love at first sight in spite of the horrors of war around them. Resolution of problems happens very s...
