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...

5.0 out of 5 stars war nurse 24 Jan. 2010
A Kid's Review
I liked this book because it really showed how nurses worked in the second world war. I enjoyed the fact even though it focused on nursing it told you what other people in the war where doing e.g training to be a pilot. In the book they use old-fashioned types of words so it makes you feel as if you were right there on the spot. It was really exciting and gripping, I couldn't put it down and my teacher had to tell me off and to put it away. Alice, age 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed by 5 year old 5 Sept. 2012
My five year old girl and I have spent the 6 weeks of the summer holidays reading this at bed time. There was quite a bit which obviously went over her head, quite a lot of time spent explaining but we both really enjoyed it. She will be able to read this herself in a few years so will enjoy it again.
