Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Lily Baxter is a pseudonym of popular historical novelist Dilly Court so she can keep her wartime and Victorian romances separate. This book sees a slight change though as all Baxter’s previous books have had a Second World War setting whereas this one steps back to First World War. Though a little slow to start with this is an engaging and enjoyable saga that sweeps you through one woman’s experience of the war from helping refugees to spying to nursing with a healthy dose of heartbreaking romance thrown in.

If you like Lily Baxter you might also like to read books by Ellie Dean, Annie Groves and Maggie Ford.

Synopsis

In Love and War by Lily Baxter

This is a compelling wartime novel of love, loss and remembrance from the bestselling author of The Shopkeeper's Daughter. August 1914. With the approach of war about to bring tragedy and heartache to families all over England, Elsie longs to do her duty for King and country. She heads to London to act as an interpreter for thousands of Belgium refugees. But although she enjoys her work, she longs to do more. And when the opportunity arises she joins the foreign office, travelling to France as an undercover agent. When circumstances force her to return home, she joins the FANYs. And on the battlefields of Europe, she must find the courage to help save lives, each day hoping that one day she'll be reunited with the man she loves.
