Über das eBook

In The Historical Romance series, a set of stand-alone novels, Vivian Stuart builds her compelling narratives around the dramatic lives of sea captains, nurses, surgeons, and members of the aristocracy.
Stuart takes us back to the societies of the 20th century, drawing on her own experience of places across Australia, India, East Asia, and the Middle East. 
Professionally speaking, Foster Ward was perfect. There it was, a model of neatness, beds and lockers beautifully tidy; there was the famous surgeon arriving to make his round, attended by his house surgeons of varying status and by eager but nervous students; there were the nurses, dutiful and efficient, ready to answer any questions he might ask. But beneath the decorous surface there surged many a strong emotion; love and ambition, professional and personal jealousy, fear and hope ... one way or another, the ward of a big hospital can provide them all.

Über den Autor

Vivian Stuart was a British writer and during her writing career she had more than 70 books published in Australia, USA and the UK.
Born in Berkshire in England, she spent most of her youth in Burma and India, and later lived in Hungary and Australia. During WWII, she served in the Women's Unit attached to the Indian Army; she is the holder of the Burma Star.
At the age of thirty-five she began to write romantic fiction but soon devoted her attention to military and historical novels.
From the warp and woof of what we call history, she has told the story of ordinary people living under the shadow of an appalling disaster, so that other ordinary people may read it with understanding, interest, and enjoyment and, perhaps, a few tears.
