The Nurse’s War is the second book in the trilogy that charts ten years in the life of Daisy Driscoll, a working-class girl from London. Daisy has been brought up in an East End orphanage and longs for a home of her own, but the marriage she makes to a young officer in the Indian Army sees her facing deception and danger. She survives that ordeal to return to England and begin training as a nurse at St Barts. The Nurse’s War opens in 1941 when the Blitz is in full swing. Along with her colleagues, Daisy is working round the clock to help victims of a rubble-strewn London, and trying at the same time, to forge an independent life for herself. But it’s not long before misfortune strikes when the past comes back to haunt her. She finds herself once more falling into a web of intrigue and once more having to battle to save herself and those she loves.
