When the world stood still

Eastham, Kate2022
Large Print
London, 1918. Twenty-year-old Emily Burdon has been training as a nurse, learning on the job as she tends to patients from the crowded poorhouses that ring the hospital as well as wounded soldiers. She pours her heart into her nursing while she waits for happier times - peace in Europe, and the return of her childhood sweetheart Lewis from battle. But when the deadly Spanish Flu arrives in London on the heels of the war, Emily's faith and courage are put to the test. Then Lewis admits to a devastating betrayal, just as a new doctor is transferred to head up Emily's ward. Despite their differences, the Canadian Dr James Cantor and Emily find common ground in their passion for helping patients. Can Emily survive the most terrible epidemic in history with her life - and heart - intact?
