Description
The #1 international bestseller about love, war and betrayal from the author of The Alchemist's Daughter
In 1854, adventurous Rosa Barr travels to the Crimean battlefield with Florence Nightingale's nursing corps.

When Henry falls ill, Mariella impulsively takes an epic journey to the ravaged landscape of the Crimea and the tragic city of Sebastopol. What she finds there, as her world beings to crumble, is that she has much to learn about secrecy, faithfulness, and love...
