Summary

It's 1854 and sixteen-year-old Molly would give anything to change her
circumstances as a lowly servant in a posh London house. So when she
hears of an opportunity to join the nurses who will be traveling with
Florence Nightingale to the Crimea, she jumps at the chance. The work is
grueling, the hospital conditions deplorable, and Miss Nightingale a
demanding teacher. Before long, the plight of British soldiers becomes
more than just a mission of mercy as Molly finds that she's falling in
love with both a dashing young doctor and a soldier who has joined the
army to be near her. But with the battle raging ever nearer, can Molly
keep the two men she cares for from harm? A love story to savor, and a
fascinating behind-the-scenes imagining of the woman who became known as the lady with the lamp.
