    Historical Fiction

    The Lieutenant’s Nurse by Sara Ackerman Truly enjoyed this book and once I started could not put it down reading into the wee hours of the morning! Why? * I was reminded of a trip to Hawaii when I was sixteen. There were so many men in uniform on the beaches. * I remember stories my father told of being there ready to deploy during WWII only to have the war end before he was sent off to fight. * I am a nurse and considered being a nurse anesthetist. * There are two anesthesiologists in the family. Both my father and brother respected nurses and listened to what they had to advise even though they had more “book learning” they were willing to listen to someone with hands-on experience. * I have been through wars myself. * I believed in the romantic element of the story * The writing was superb * It made me think * I liked the characters I was meant to and disliked the ones that deserved it. * It took me back in time...I could almost see my parents in this book for some reason Would I read another book by this author? I definitely would! Thank you to NetGalley and HQN-MIRA for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Poignant, romantic, and incredibly absorbing!

    The Lieutenant’s Nurse is an intriguing tale that sweeps you away to the shores of Hawaii in the early 1940s and immerses you into the life of Eva, a young nurse whose heart, strength and compassion are about to be tested when the Japanese unexpectedly rage war on Pearl Harbor. The prose is eloquent and vivid. The characters are complex, resilient, genuine, and endearing. And the plot, including all the subplots, intertwine and unravel subtly into a captivating tale of life, loss, family, heartbreak, secrets, betrayal, friendship, determination, self-discovery, true love, and the harrowing effects of war. Overall, The Lieutenant’s Nurse is an atmospheric, evocative, beautifully written novel by Ackerman that grabs you from the very first page and does an exceptional job of blending historical facts with fiction that’s both moving and wonderfully captivating.
