  • WW I historical fiction and set in Egypt.

    Lady Virginia Whitman is from a well to do English family, her parents own a residence in Cairo and her father works for the foreign office. Ginger and her friend Beatrice Thornton, work as nurses at a busy causality clearing station in Palestine and are close to the action. The Turks hold vital territory, the British campaign in Egypt has been costly and they need to keep control of the Suez Canal. Ginger finds a wounded Turkish soldier hiding in a hut, he claims to be carrying important intelligence and has information about a secret plot against the British army. Gravely wounded, not sure if he will live, Ahmed makes Ginger promise to hide his possessions, and he informs her that someone has infiltrated British intelligence, and is a spy. Ginger doesn’t know who she can trust with the information, she has no idea how much danger she’s in and she contacts her brother Henry. Instead of coming to her aid, he sends the one person she has never liked, his best friend Lord Stephen Fisher, he’s rather obnoxious and her father wanted her to marry him. Trouble seems to follow Ginger, Major Noah Benson saves her when she's stranded in the Arabian desert, he’s a British intelligence officer, he takes her to a Bedouin camp, she sees how he interacts with the local people and she could easily fall in love with the handsome Major. Windswept, is an incredible adventure story about a British nurse during WW I, it's full of intrigue, suspense, danger, corruption and murder. Ginger discovers the identity of the enemy spy working for the Germans, she has the ability to change the course of the war and has to question the motives of members of her own family. A engrossing historical fiction saga, I was hooked by the end of the first chapter, I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and five stars from me.

  • An epic debut historical fiction novel

    This is a brilliant action packed historical fiction book, that is loosely based on true stories. This thrilling book follows a British nurse in Egypt during WWI. Who is unable to stop herself from saving the life of a man who is carrying an important message about a plot to take down the British and bringing to light the people who are corrupt within the British government trying to stop him. This face paced moving story line is truly fantastic. The author is a genius for bringing such little details to the story that brings a brilliant atmosphere and suspense. The characters was wonderful and are wrote so that we are always guessing who we can trust. The love story element of the book had me intrigued. I just couldn't put the book down. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the constant air of mystery in the story and you really connect with the main character as you wonder just she can do to help and to whom she can trust. So many brilliant elements of this book were brought together with such skill, I didn't want the book to end. I listened to the audio version of this book which did need to be speed up a little bit and the narrator was brilliant at adding a suspense to the story. So much praise goes out to the author and independent publishers for creating such a magnificent book. I will be reading this authors further books and I can't wait. This book is part one in the tale.

  • A fun read

    A novel set during what was assumed at the time to be the War to End All War, Windswept has everything a war love story/action novel should have: a conflicted heroine, a mysterious hero, complex family situation, and danger both from the elements and a mysterious bad guy. The only thing that keeps this story from being perfect is that it’s perhaps a little too full of exciting events. My suspension of disbelief was stretched pretty much to the breaking point. But it was still a fun story that gives the reader a sense of the times and political complexity of the Middle East during World War I.

  • Has a bit of everything

    A WW1 drama with everything; intrigue, romance, villain and hero. Some parts were a little unbelievable (finding someone in a sandstorm!!) but overall enjoyable.

  • I couldn’t put it down

    This book blew me away….it was wonderful! WWI’s Middle Eastern front and its pivotal role in the eventual success of the Allies is rarely written about. “Windswept” captures the era and location beautifully while weaving the star crossed love story of British nurse Lady Virginia (Ginger) and British Intelligence Major Noah Benson. I couldn’t put the book down.
