My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an amazing story of friendship, love, challenges and racial discrimination during war time.

Claire and Lorette leave their homes to become nurses for the troops. Trouble starts when they place Lorette and Claire into the camp. With the Jim Crow laws that meant there was segregation between white and black people. So when Claire volunteers to work in the camp where she is the only white person problems start to arise.

During her time she falls in love with a solider from that camp which leads to punishments, and discrimination against Claire and her family on her return home.

This story is a story of courage against all odds, standing up for equality between races and fighting for a love you want. Its enjoyable to read but in parts is very sad and makes you realise how destructive humans can be towards either other just because of skin colour
