Nightingale




A breathtaking novel of heartbreak and heroism, love and longing by a powerhouse Australian storyteller.  

'Love comes out of nowhere for most of us, when we least expect it.' Amidst the carnage of Gallipoli, British nurse Claire Nightingale meets Australian Light Horseman Jamie Wren. Despite all odds, they fall deeply in love. Their flame burns bright and carries them through their darkest hours, even when war tears them apart.   When Jamie encounters Turkish soldier Açar Shahin on the bloodstained battlefield, the men forge an unforgettable bond.  Their chance meeting also leaves a precious clue to Jamie's whereabouts for Claire to follow. Come peacetime, Claire's desperate search to find Jamie takes her all the way to Istanbul, and deep into the heart of Açar's family, where she attracts the unexpected attention of a charismatic and brooding scholar. In the name of forgiveness, cultures come together, enemies embrace and forbidden passions ignite – but by the nail-biting conclusion, who will be left standing to capture Nurse Nightingale's heart?   A breathtaking novel of heartbreak and heroism, love and longing by a powerhouse Australian storyteller.   'Now, this is a book. A real book. The kind of book you can't put down and the kind of book you can't wait to end, but don't want to end. Full marks to McIntosh for reaching into our lives and stealing hours away. 10/10.' Newcastle Herald Praise for The Tailor's Girl: 'Fiona McIntosh is a superior writer in the genre, and if you enjoy popular romantic fiction, you'd be mad not to try her.' The Age 'Sure to appeal to lovers of period romantic dramas like Downton Abbey.' Woman's Day
