Summary: (taken from Goodreads)
Before America's entry into World War I, The American Field Service organized to help bleeding France. In thankfulness for France's aid during the Revolutionary War, young American males volunteered as ambulance drivers to repay their country's debt. Henry "Hoop" Braddock is one such man. He and the boys of Section Two drive Model T ambulances, and are "En Repos," a unit awaiting assignment.
One day, in a crowded, smoke-filled canteen in Bar-le-Duc, Hoop meets Kyla Laurens, a Scottish nurse. Her violet-colored eyes burn into his heart, branding him. As fate would have it, Hoop and Kyla end up serving at the same chateau-turned-hospital while the bloody battle to save Verdun ensues.
At first, Hoop has precious little time to spend with Kyla due to the German attack. Instead, his time is spent driving his ambulance, all the while hearing the gruesome and touching detailed accounts of the fighting from injured soldiers riding in his cab. But later, once the pressure is off, a romance between Hoop and Kyla begins to flourish. Yet will experiences from Kyla's past prove fatal to their relationship?
I am a huge fan of historical fiction (especially those set in France during war-time). I've already started reading this and am loving it! To share the love, the author has generously offered a paperback copy of his book to giveaway. Thanks Fred!
