THE WOMAN AT THE FRONT is perfect for fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, and for readers of Kate Quinn. Cornwall, who lives in Canada, was inspired to write THE WOMAN AT THE FRONT by her own family history during WWI. A trip to France to visit the grave of her late uncle lost on the battlefield informed her research.
If there’s ever a time to celebrate the remarkable healthcare professionals in our world, it’s now ―and THE WOMAN AT THE FRONT is a reminder to appreciate their service.
ABOUT THE WOMAN AT THE FRONT:
Eleanor Atherton has dreamed her entire life of one day becoming a doctor, much to the dismay of her parents. After all, it’s 1917, there’s a war on, and an upper class young woman should really be settling down and getting married―not graduating from medical school. But the knowledge that soldiers are wounded and dying every day, and male doctors are being called to the front to tend to them, leaves Eleanor even more eager to practice medicine in her hometown.
No one seems to take Eleanor seriously as a medical professional―but as an unexpected twist of fate would have it, Eleanor is asked by a family friend to go to the battlefields in France and serve as private doctor for an injured soldier. It’s just the chance she needs to lend a hand and serve her duty.
