Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of Wives of War comes a harrowing tale of four brave young nurses whose lives change forever in the wake of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

When Grace, April, and Poppy join the US Army Nurse Corps, they see it as little more than an adventure, one made all the better by their first station: Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Joined at the hip, idealistic Grace, exuberant Poppy, and brave but haunted April frolic in the sun, attending parties, flirting with the handsome soldiers, and becoming fast friends with seasoned nurse Eva. Like the Hawaiian sun, their future seems warm and bright - until the infamous morning of December 7. 

Within just a few horrifying hours, their sparkling hopes turn to black rubble and ash. Now embroiled in a war they never could have imagined, they must decide what truly matters to them and face grief as they never have before. Death may await them - but so do hope and purpose. In the midst of the carnage, can they find happiness and learn to fight not just for their country’s honor but for themselves?

doesn't fit history

could have been a five star if had been true to the period. liked the characters but the dialog and circumstances were not true to WW2 military nurses. these 3 lower ranked nurses had way too much free time and behavior and language just didn't match the various nonfiction accounts I have read about the period. I did enjoy the storyline and various characters but kept going wait a minute how could they have done that?

DREADFUL BOOK

what a horrible book. A complete waste of a credit. Within the first chapter I hated the breathy narrator and tried to return it but audible said it wasn’t eligible for return. The sentence structure is disjointed at best. It should be marketed as young teen because the content and grammar are so childish.

The narrator is simply dreadful. So bad, that I have written down her name so I never purchase another book with her narrating. Breathy and very bad pacing of dialogue. Her portrayal sounds like she is dealing with 12 year olds.

The story line jumps from topic to topic, winding with no destination.

Do NOT waste your credit on this horrible book.

WWII with all the impact

Nurses from before Pearl Harbor to almost the end of the war. It covers the entire gamut of emotions, conditions and horrors as well as the struggle to rebuild shattered bodies, minds and hearts.

If you want to dive headfirst into living history, come take a walk.

Highly Disapointed

Cute story line. Not at all what I was expecting. Boring! What should have taken a few hours, took me weeks to complete. I thought it would get better but it never did. It was painful to get through!

Interesting

This was such an interesting subject as we really do hear so little of what ladies help to shape our world as we know it. However, I was hoping for a lot more of what was it really like verses a romantic story that repeats itself. The cast was a good start just sad that it focused more in the romance then the grit. The narrator was easy to follow and kept every one clear in my head.

Another fabulous story by Ms Lane!

I absolutely loved this story by Ms Lane. The characters are all deeply developed. No cardboard cutouts here. Her writing style is so smooth and engaging.
The narrator let Ms Lane down however. I almost stopped listening due to the narrator making it sound like a cartoon at times. Her so called British accent is atrocious. But Ms Lane's storytelling ability kept me listening all the way to the end.
I'm looking forward to her next book. I just hope the publisher chooses the narrator more carefully next time.

Good

I enjoyed the story of The girls of Pearl
Harbor, however the narrator did not make the story easy to listen too.
