The daughter of historian Stuart Robson, from whom she first learned about the Great War, and a former guide at the Canadian National War Memorial at Vimy Ridge, France, British historian Jennifer Robson depicts the chaos of World War I in this debut novel, through the eyes of a daring and determined young woman. Lady Elizabeth Neville-Ashford—Lilly—wants to travel, pursue a career, and marry for love, despite the strictures of aristocratic society and her mother's expectations. When war breaks out Lilly seizes her chance, becoming an ambulance driver in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, and in France she is reunited with her brother's best friend Robert Fraser, now a surgeon. Only here can she approach the working-class Scotsman as an equal, while Robbie can speak his mind to this beautiful young woman whom he has always considered forbidden.

"Downton Abbey fans will be thrilled to move beyond the estate and glimpse life on the front lines as Robson's heroine bravely defies convention.... With its accurate portrayal of the era, from the stately British mansions to the horrors of the Front, this powerful, touching novel is also a tribute to the brave men and women caught in the Great War. Robson's debut is filled with history and realism yet still romantic."—RT Book Reviews
