Anne Bennett draws on her own background to give emotional depth to an affecting story populated with rich, beautifully drawn characters. Anne Bennett is blessed with a vivid imagination and a natural aptitude for writing. This is a stirring saga of a nurse who only wants to do her duty in World War Two - and who ends up having to make an agonising choice. The only problem I have with this book is that it was published by HarperCollins and there are lots of typos and very obvious ones at that. Don't let that put you off though, very well worth the read if you like Maureen Lee, Lillian Harry or Rosamund Pilcher.

They have valuable jobs to do – all the more so when World War Two looms. But those years will change everything: their relationship, their priorities, their very characters. Carmel will find that the future is very different to the one she thought she wanted for so lon. iction Sagas.

Can an ordinary girl dare to be different? The compelling new bestseller from Birmingham's Queen of Fiction Janet is determined to make something of herself, instead of being chained to a sink with a baby a year like most women of her generation. She passes her eleven-plus and wins a scholarship to go to a good grammar school, but her father refuses to believe that girls have the right to do anything other than look after their husbands and raise children.

And so Paul is going to have the factory handed to him on a plate?’ Carmel said, in a slightly mocking tone, all ready to dislike this so perfect cousin of Lois’s. No,’ Lois said, ‘Paul doesn’t want it. He’s training to be a doctor. Ooh, I bet he will have a lovely bedside manner,’ she said in delight. When they let him loose I should imagine at least half of the female population will develop ailments that they have never suffered from before. ‘You are a fool, Lois,’ Carmel said, though she too was laughing.

Better by far to have her well out of the way from the beginning. Sister Frances had an idea germinating in her head. Don’t fall at the first hurdle. She said, ‘Don’t get your hopes up, Carmel, but when I was at the convent school just outside Letterkenny, I was great friends with a girl called Catherine Turner. She wasn’t a Catholic, but her father had work in Derry and favoured a convent education for his daughter.

She's determined to have no husband or family of her own, but her resolve is tested when Dr Paul Connolly comes onto her ward. Gradually he wins her heart, and they agree to marry, both certain that they want no children, but after the devastation of World War Two, Carmel finds the future is very different to the one she thought she wanted...

I was. Very Impressed with the story is Carmel. Her strength and intelligence. And conviction to love her family was so inspiring. I felt her pain when she first found out Paul was dead in the war. When you loose the love of your life. You ask yourself does God hate me or did gof
