THE LIEUTENANT’S NURSE by Sara Ackerman & Giveaway



Hopefully you had the opportunity to read an excerpt of THE LIEUTENANT’S NURSE on our blog earlier this month. Today we get to tell you what it’s about, and I’m sure you won’t want to miss reading this very unique angle on WWII novel.

November, 1941.     
She’s never even seen the ocean before, but Eva Cassidy has her reasons for making the crossing to Hawaii, and they run a lot deeper than escaping a harsh Michigan winter. Newly enlisted as an Army Corps nurse, Eva is stunned by the splendor she experiences aboard the steamship SS Lurline; even more so by Lt. Clark Spencer, a man she is drawn to but who clearly has secrets of his own. But Eva’s past—and the future she’s trying to create—means that she’s not free to follow her heart. Clark is a  navy intelligence officer, and he warns her that the United States won’t be able to hold off joining the war for long, but nothing can prepare them for the surprise attack that will change the world they know.

In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Eva and her fellow nurses band together for the immense duty of keeping the American wounded alive. And the danger that finds Eva threatens everything she holds dear. Amid the chaos and heartbreak, Eva will have to decide whom to trust and how far she will go to protect those she loves.

Set in the vibrant tropical surroundings of the Pacific, THE LIEUTENANT’S NURSE is an evocative, emotional WWII story of love, friendship and the resilient spirit of the heroic nurses of Pearl Harbor.

  1. I have read so many great books set during WWII and have enjoyed them all. I am currently reading The Last Year of the War, and am loving it….the subject is one I didn’t know much about, and I adore the characters.

  4. I read a lot of WWII fiction. When my dad talked about his experiences on USS PITTSBURGH when he was in WWII, my interest grew in all historical fiction about the era.

  5. I really enjoyed The Wartime Sisters for a recent read. The one that got me hooked on the era, though, was Herman Wouk’s the Winds of War and then War of Remembrance.

  6. I have many favorite WWII books, but I enjoyed reading Maggie Bright : A Novel of Dunkirk. It explores beautifully the individual citizens of England who answered the call to arms and sailed their personal boats to Dunkirk to save the troops stranded there. I wish they would make a movie based on this book. Dunkirk is a great movie, but this story should also be told.
