In Love and War by Lily Baxter
  

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 Annie Groves, Ellie Dean and Maggie Ford.
