Summary
  • In 1914-15 England, fifteen-year-old Poppy works as a parlormaid until she is transformed by forbidden love and a war that sends her to the front line as a nurse
  • England, 1914. Poppy's destiny has already been carved out by society. At fifteen, she will become a servant to the aristocratic de Vere family. It doesn't matter that their youngest son Freddie seems to have fallen just as hard for Poppy. He could never marry a girl like her. But The Great War has just begun, and the chains of class, wealth, and gender no longer matter: England needs every able bodied person to serve in battle in some way. Poppy volunteers on the front lines as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse, and finds an unexpected freedom
