The Good Book Guide Review

Jo, a photographer, has returned to England, reeling from her recent harrowing experiences working in Afghan-istan. Suffering from burnout, confusion, and with a weighty secret, she finds writing her thoughts as a confessional letter to her ex-girlfriend a helpful therapy. In her flat, she discovers her great-grandmother’s diary, written when she worked as a nurse in the First World War. As we move back and forth from the diary entries to Jo’s confessional letter, we see two women separated by a hundred years in time, but each facing moral dilemmas, hardship, and heartache. A wonderfully evocative and moving tale, of two strong women deeply affected by the repercussions of war, each in love and facing loss.
