Description

When a wounded officer is brought to battlefield nurse Bess Crawford's aid station, she treats his injuries before he is sent to a hospital. The odd thing is, the officer isn't British-- he's French. But in a moment of anger and stress, he shouts at Bess in German. Her superior offers an explanation, but Bess remains uneasy-- and unconvinced. If he was a French soldier, what was he doing so far from his own lines : and so close to where the Germans are putting up a fierce, last-ditch fight? When the French officer disappears in Paris, it's up to Bess-- a soldier's daughter as well as a nurse-- to find out why, even at the risk of her own life.

Professional reviews

"In WWI France, Bess Crawford investigates the past of a wounded soldier who is found under a shattered tree in no-man's-land. He claims to be French, but he speaks German. Crawford doesn't trust him. Rosalyn Landor's skillful narration takes listeners to battlefield hospitals, to gritty Paris, and to villages in the French countryside. Crawford, an intrepid nurse, together with a host of military officers and spies, peels back the patient's past. Landor nimbly shifts from Crawford's British tones to French, German, and subtle American accents, each perfectly paired with the various individual characters. Listeners will be totally engaged as Crawford works to uncover the truth about a soldier who may have murder in his past. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
