Eliza will find the fun and adventure she desired as well as an unexpected romance with a handsome soldier. Yet all changes overnight as war destroys her tropical paradise. Our heroine must quickly adapt in order to survive the harsh, unforgiving jungle climate, and become a skilled combat nurse on the frontline.

Can Eliza find the strength and courage needed to survive such horror and still emerge with her spirit unbroken?
Five Huge Boundless Stars
I have so much to say about this book, but I'll start by saying, honestly it was the best book I have ever read. I have been reading my whole life and I have never fallen in love with a book like I did this one. As a reviewer, I have come across hundreds of books by authors that I have never heard of, but from the very first page I fell in love. This story was a story of love and war. A story of struggle and of triumph. It starts with Eliza, a young woman who wants adventure. She decides to join the Army as a nurse. Soon she finds herself in the 1940's in a paradise and falling in love with a soldier. That paradise is soon shattered by war. From years of fighting and daily struggles of keeping her patients alive, to a life spending years in an intern camp away from her husband, this book had it all. It was descriptive to the point that I felt like I knew the characters, like I was there fighting with them. It was a story so well written and so well thought out that I can't imagine a true story, told by an actual war veteran told any better or more heart felt. While reading this book I have laughed, I have been angry, but most of all I have cried. I cried over the struggles and the death. I cried over the beautiful romance and the wonderful ending.
I really loved this book. I can only rate it a 5, but on a scale of 1 to 100 this book will be a 100. EVERY SINGLE TIME. I have never, before this book, heard of this author, but with writing like this I hope to see so much more in the future.
