  • rtwete rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

Heroine is orphan adopted by upper class family. She is besotted with young man of family, who becomes a doctor. He and brother-in-law go to Crimean War to treat casualties. For some reason, women go also, maybe it starts out just as a travel jaunt, then they end up embroiled in the war. Women return to England except for heroine. She seems very attached to Georgie & wife's children. Like US Civil War in same century, more are killed by disease and pestilence than battle.
