When sixteen-year-old Molly meets Florence Nightingale, she jumps at the chance to join the nurses heading to war. The work is grueling, but it soon becomes more than just a mission of mercy. Molly falls in love with both a dashing young doctor and a soldier who has joined the army to be near her. But with the battle raging ever nearer, can Molly keep the two men she cares for safe from harm? A love story to savor and a fascinating behind-the-scenes imagining of the woman known as "the lady with the lamp."
