Mercy Road (by Ann Howard Creel) … WWI female ambulance drivers in France

I am not a big fan of books based during WWI.  But this was a different twist and enjoyable.  The willingness of women to serve as ambulance drivers in France during the war.  The difficult circumstances and the dangers they experience as well as the horrors they witness affects the women.  Mentally and emotionally drained, they struggle to complete their tasks.  Though there is some romance in the book, the dedication of these courageous women keeps the book from being syrupy sweet.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
