London, 1944. Two young nurses meet at a train station with a common purpose: to join the war effort. Scarlet longs for the chance to find her missing fianc√©, Thomas, and to prove to her family‚ÄĒand to herself‚ÄĒthat she‚Äôs stronger than everybody thinks. Nursing is in Ellie‚Äôs blood, but her humble background is vastly different from Scarlet‚Äôs privileged upbringing. Though Ellie puts on a brave face, she‚Äôs just as nervous as Scarlet about what awaits them in France.
In Normandy, the two friends soon encounter the seemingly unflappable Lucy. Scarlet and Ellie are in awe of her courage and competence, but the experienced nurse is well aware of the dangers of the job they‚Äôve chosen‚ÄĒand even she is terrified they won‚Äôt make it home alive.
Pushed to their limits by the brutality of a world at war, Scarlet, Ellie and Lucy will need to rely on each other‚ÄĒand the power of their friendship‚ÄĒto survive.
