What a good book!
I love Christian Historical Fiction - but this goes one better, because it's biographical. It's one thing for people to live through experiences like this, but to tell the tale so well is a talent. I highly recommend this for any WW1 WW2 enthusiasts, as well as for anyone who wants an engrossing story. There's no doubt that the scenes described are real. The things that Ray went through and survived to tell are, well, incredible that he survived it, horrific that he experienced it. And what it was like for Betty. What it takes to be a nurse during a war, the dedication to leave home and nurture lives of people you've never met before - who've had such damage to their bodies and minds.
Then to begin young love, and go through such trials of separation, faithfulness and belief. There is strong Christian faith throughout, lessons and demonstrations. It's so well told, you don't want to put it down. I can't give higher praise for a book - I would give it 10 stars.
