Summary

From peaceful Scotland to war-ravaged Europe, two female doctors from very different backgrounds fight to succeed and survive.

When you're chasing a dream, does it matter where you come from? Upper-class Lucy Graham is expected simply to marry well. Poverty-stricken Rosie Nesbitt struggles just to get by. Both girls share the unlikely dream to become a doctor, and each will do anything to succeed.

When their paths cross at a party filled with eligible bachelors, it soon becomes clear that their chosen career isn't the only desire they share. With society's conventions stacked against them and war raging on the continent, Lucy and Rosie must draw their own battle lines in their fight for love, life and happiness. But can they both succeed?

Disappointed !

Struggled throughout the book to focus on the story's of each girls progress. The dialect did not help and I should have been at an advantage as my father was from the North of England!

Such a disappointing ending

Great start but horrible ending. Don't waste your time or money on it. Don't buy.
