One of the best Bess Crawford books - not too much of her this time

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that the romance, while part of the story, didn't shut out the rest of what was happening to the characters. For me, the narrative as to what was happening during the time period and the actions/reactions of the characters really brought the story to life. My only complaint is the sudden ending - the main character vows to do one thing and, within a few pages, does the exact opposite and then -- story's done!

This is the BEST book I have ever read. It includes fighting for what you want, never giving up, and a little romance. It's very enjoyable.

a very good read. the characters are personal and admirable. taking place in 1914 during war time it shows the resilence of the people who make up our world.

A pleasant and interesting read, even though it's hard to explain why.

This is a nice stand alone by Charles Todd. (mother and son writing team) It is a Christmas story but remember the main character is a WW1 nurse so it is not all about snowflakes and gentle wishes. Bess Crawford makes a cameo.
