'It's 1911, and 21-year-old Evelyn Northey desperately wants to become a doctor. Her father forbids it, withholding the inheritance that would allow her to attend university. At the outbreak of World War I, Evelyn disobeys her father, enlisting as an army nurse bound for Egypt and the disastrous Gallipoli campaign.

Under the blazing desert sun, Evelyn develops feelings for polio survivor Dr William Brent, who believes his disability makes him unfit to marry. For Evelyn, still pursuing her goal of studying medicine, a man has no place in her future. For two such self-reliant people, relying on someone else for happiness may be the hardest challenge of all.'

I absolutely adored this book.

This is the second of Pamela Hart's books that I have read, I am pleased to say she is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I went into this book with high hopes and if did not disappoint.

One of the amazing things about Pamela Hart's writing is her amazing descriptions. They have such a cinematic quality about them, they can easily transport a reader to another time and place.

The scenes and setting is this book were absolutly breathtaking. I was genuinely moved by the setting of this book, not only were they breathtaking but they were equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking.

The characters in this book were so relatable and three-dimensional. I found myself feeling everything these characters were experiencing. I at time forgot I was reading a book and not actually living this story with these characters.

I loved seeing the passion these character had radiate off the pages. There love, friendship and at sometimes anger, was so real and human and made for a truly wonderful reading experience.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. I am so glad that I read it and I cant wait to see what Pamela Hart comes out with next.

The Desert Nurse by Pamela Hart is a must read for everyone.
