A British nurse in WWI Egypt races to deliver explosive intelligence that could change the course of the war in this novel of suspense, adventure, and love.

May, 1917. Ginger Whitman left a life of wealth and privilege in England to train as a battlefield nurse and serve in the Great War. Working on the brutal frontlines in Palestine, she finds a wounded soldier hiding in her camp. The soldier claims to carry intelligence unmasking a secret plot against the British—and that traitors within British intelligence are searching for him. Desperate and dying, the soldier entrusts a coded message to her care.

Ginger is hurled into an unfamiliar world of intrigue and murder amidst the war-ravaged Arabian desert. She's determined to help her country but trusting the wrong person could cost her life. Then the arrival of mysterious and handsome British intelligence officer Major Noah Benson offers a chance of help. But Noah may be as dangerous as he is charming. As she’s swept away by stolen moments on the desert sands, Ginger realizes her heart may also be at risk.

Hunted by a shadowy enemy spy, Ginger must decide if she can trust Noah. But as she grapples with her decision, Ginger makes a shocking discovery: a sinister secret that threatens to shatter the world she thought she knew.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Author and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
This novel is historical fiction at it’s best! McCormack has a true, beautiful talent and I’m so happy to have had the chance to read this novel! From start to finished, I fell in love with the WWI era, the plot line, the characters…..all of it was phenomenally chiseled and truly gripped me.

Ginger & Noah. Oh how I fell head over heels for them both! I loved how their story played out amongst the twists and turns of the secrets and rollercoaster of a plot line. I felt myself becoming a part of history and following their story and becoming friends. I loved that!

McCormack has a beautiful writing style and uses rich descriptions among her words, bringing the historical, WWI, Egyptian setting to life. This is definitely a 4 star start to a wonderful series and I can’t wait to read the next!
