Very few books I have read have left me speechless and having feelings I didn’t know books were capable of giving. But this book gave me a book hangover.
Pearl Harbor was an extremely brutal, harrowing and gruesome time. And often gets lost in the story and history of World War II. When you read or watch something about Pearl Harbor, the primary focus is usually on the soldiers, as it should be. But there were heroes that day that fought in a completely different way. And this book covers it.
Author: Soraya Lane
Genre: Historical Fiction
Time Era: 1941 – World War II
This book focuses on four nurses stationed at Pearl Harbor. It begins in November, a month before the attack. And both the nurses and soldiers’ thought being stationed in paradise was going to be a breeze, and that the threat of war would never reach them. But as we all know it did.
Soraya Lane brings pure, raw emotion onto the pages on that horrendous day in December. While the characters are fictional, they might have been real. Because what they went through, Soraya Lane spares no detail, is exactly what happened.
The emotions of pain, loss, and sadness penetrate the pages of part one of the book.
But the second part of the book brings the nurses to a medical station in Africa. It is there that they continue to be on the front lines of nursing the wounded in primitive conditions. But it is also there that the nurses begin to heal, and deal with the hurt and the loss.
If I had to describe this book in single words, it would be; gripping, amazing, emotional…
This is now one of my top favorites.
If you love history, you will love this book.
