About The Book:
A British nurse in WWI Egypt races to deliver explosive intelligence that could change the course of the war in this novel of suspense, adventure, and love.
May, 1917. Ginger Whitman left a life of wealth and privilege in England to train as a battlefield nurse and serve in the Great War. Working on the brutal frontlines in Palestine, she finds a wounded soldier hiding in her camp. The soldier claims to carry intelligence unmasking a secret plot against the British—and that traitors within British intelligence are searching for him. Desperate and dying, the soldier entrusts a coded message to her care.
Ginger is hurled into an unfamiliar world of intrigue and murder amidst the war-ravaged Arabian desert. She’s determined to help her country but trusting the wrong person could cost her life. Then the arrival of mysterious and handsome British intelligence officer Major Noah Benson offers a chance of help. But Noah may be as dangerous as he is charming. As she’s swept away by stolen moments on the desert sands, Ginger realizes her heart may also be at risk.
Hunted by a shadowy enemy spy, Ginger must decide if she can trust Noah. But as she grapples with her decision, Ginger makes a shocking discovery: a sinister secret that threatens to shatter the world she thought she knew.
Miss W’s Review:
Windswept by Annabelle McCormack is a wonderfully written historical fiction that takes place in Egypt during WWI.
I enjoyed the WWI time period, and the location of Egypt. I love reading about WWI, and I really liked the location during WWI, it was different than any location I had read in any historical fiction during WWI.
This story had everything: history, mystery, lies and secrets. The characters are well developed, researched and fleshed out.
This was a great story and I get a feeling that there is more to this story. Maybe a series? I really hope so!
