Tabitha--Kindle Cover

Fiery-haired, fiery-tempered Tabitha gives her heart to God and her life to nursing. When the Great War erupts in Europe, she hears God asking her to nurse the war wounded. Will the elite British Nursing Service accept the services of an American volunteer? And what is Tabitha to do with her feelings for Mason Carpenter, the man who simply refuses to give up on her?

“Wonderfully written with emphasis on the redemptive love of Christ Jesus through relationship with him.”

“The author artfully weaves in the historical context throughout the book adding even more believability to the story. Such a great book.”

Author note: Oh, my, the research! I can now attest that I now know more about World War 1, the evolution of aviation and fighter planes just before and during the war, and the history of British nursing than I ever expected to! I can also tell you how marvelous it was to fold Tabitha’s story into this rich background. Why British nursing, you might ask? Yes, Tabitha is American, but the United States did not join the war until 1917. From 1914 until America made its formal declaration of war, American nurses had no way to participate in the care of the war wounded—but Tabitha finds a way.
