This book is three novellas all presented in one novel. Each story different but just as compelling, interesting, suspenseful with enough action to keep you reading through each story quickly.. It’s centered around 3 Red Cross nurses each serving in different roles but there’s enough in each story to tie the nurse’s together and the things they do within the hospital they are working.

Julie Rowe’s research was evident in each story and the history was fascinating. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Thank you to #netgalley and #julierowe for allowing me to read the eARC of this book. All opinions expressed above are my own.

The War Girls is three novellas all presented in one novel. It is set during WW1 in Germany and tells the stories of 3 Red Cross nurses working to smuggle British soldiers out from behind enemy lines - and of the men who love them and will risk all to protect them. Each storyline is individual but the stories each follow a similar pattern and are just as compelling, interesting and suspenseful with enough action to keep you reading through each story quickly. It tells stories of three brave British nurses each serving in different roles within the hospital they are working. Rose, Maria and Judith are very strong female characters who risk everything to aid the allies in the war effort and save lives. The story is full of suspense, action, romance, compassion, cruelty, history, bravery and unselfishness. I loved it from start to finish. I really enjoyed the endings as they were pleasant and happy endings and didn’t disappoint.
It is wonderfully written and an easy read. I am sure it will warm your heart. I highly recommend The War Girls by Julie Rowe.
My thanks to NetGalley and BookBuzz.net for granting me an eARC of this book.

Fantastic Read! War Girls has three books in one volume. Each book contains about thirteen chapters. I'm not much of a romance reader unless the book has some thing to teach me. If you need a book to surprise with Great war time romance, War Girls by Julie Rowe will warm your heart. Although there is so much wit and fun packed sequences in the novel, there was in it compassion and cruelty.

The War Girls is three novellas compiled into one book.

It tells stories of three brave three British nurses during the war set in Germany.

At times it is so emotional it had me reaching for my tissues. Rose, Maria and Judith are very strong female characters who risk everything to aid the allies in the ear effort and save lives.

The story is full. If suspense, action and history. I loved it from start to finish.

Recommend.
