A wartime love story that turns truth on its side.
The Lieutenant's Nurse - a novel
November, 1941. Europe is at war, Japan has brutally invaded China, and for America, it seems like only a matter of time. But Eva Cassidy has troubles of her own to worry about. On the run from a dark lie, she sets sail on the SS Lurline bound for Honolulu, about as far away from the backwoods of Michigan as one can get. The last thing she expects is to fall for a fellow passenger, but something about Lieutenant Clark Spencer draws her in and she can’t get him off of her mind. Not only that, but he knows a dangerous secret, one that has the potential to either save them or kill them. Four days after the Lurline docks in Honolulu, just when Eva is settling into the balmy pace of island life, the Japanese attack sends Pearl Harbor into fiery chaos. While Eva and her fellow nurses work around the clock to save the burned and injured soldiers, she frantically searches for Clark. But what Eva soon learns is that not everything is as it seems, and that the first casualty of war is truth.
