Somewhere in France by Jennifer Robson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The story of a young woman of privilege who wants more out of life than simply attending fancy dinner parties, Lilly gets into an argument with her parents and leaves home. In her desire to do more for the war effort, she volunteers for the first ever female unit of the army. The author focuses mainly on the romance between Lilly and Robbie, a surgeon and friend of her brother. Lilly manages to get herself assigned to the very same hospital unit where Robbie is stationed. The author does a great job of describing life during the war, and she introduces some great characters, but she fails to fully develop the characters and the story. I enjoyed the book, but felt like there were many missed opportunities to make it even better.
