Description

A British nurse in WWI Egypt races to deliver explosive intelligence that could change the course of the war in this novel of suspense, adventure, and love.

May, 1917. Ginger Whitman left a life of wealth and privilege in England to train as a battlefield nurse and serve in the Great War. Working on the brutal frontlines in Palestine, she finds a wounded soldier hiding in her camp. The soldier claims to carry intelligence unmasking a secret plot against the British--and that traitors within British intelligence are searching for him. Desperate and dying, the soldier entrusts a coded message to her care.

Ginger is hurled into an unfamiliar world of intrigue and murder amidst the war-ravaged Arabian desert. She's determined to help her country but trusting the wrong person could cost her life. Then the arrival of mysterious and handsome British intelligence officer Major Noah Benson offers a chance of help. But Noah may be as dangerous as he is charming. As she's swept away by stolen moments on the desert sands, Ginger realizes her heart may also be at risk.

Hunted by a shadowy enemy spy, Ginger must decide if she can trust Noah. But as she grapples with her decision, Ginger makes a shocking discovery: a sinister secret that threatens to shatter the world she thought she knew.

"...akin to an Arabian version of Gone With the Wind, juxtaposing history with romance with a depth that few World War I novels achieve."
-D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"This work of historical fiction is so incredibly enthralling, there are the undertones of class that made Downton Abbey such a favorite, along with the pathos of honor, war, servitude, manners, and stature intertwine the way you see in 1917 or in the works of Patrick O'Brian...A book packed with engrossing visuals and vibrant drama. This is a novel that is complex, powerful, and moving. Windswept has the great ability to be both a great romance novel and a great work of historical fiction. It never once compromises one mission for the other. An exceptional achievement for any author and for any genre."
-Robert Buccellato, San Francisco Book Review
