Description

Lady Elizabeth Neville-Ashford wants to travel the world, pursue a career, and marry for love. But in 1914, the restrictions of British society and her mother’s expectations forbid Lilly from following her heart. When war breaks out, she seizes her chance for independence. Defying her parents, Lilly moves to London and becomes an ambulance driver in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps—a treacherous job that takes her to the Western Front.

Assigned to a field hospital, Lilly is reunited with Robert Fraser, her brother’s best friend. She doesn’t care that the hand-some Scottish surgeon grew up in poverty—she yearns for their friendship to become something more. Lilly is the most beautiful—and forbidden—woman Robbie has ever known. Fearful for her life, he’s determined to keep her safe, even if it means breaking her heart.

In a world divided and filled with uncertainty, can their hope for love survive . . . or will it become another casualty of war?

Editorial Reviews

“…the fiercely independent Lady Elizabeth Neville-Ashford (Lily) will be sure to inspire readers.”

— Huffington Post

“Robson intermingles the overarching themes of love, war, and societal strictures in this appealing read that should resonate with fans of Downton Abbey.”

— Booklist

Set in the turbulent years of the first world war, Somewhere in France is a heartfelt portrait of love, courage, and self-discovery. Robson deftly weaves a tale richly steeped in the atmosphere, drama and heroism of an evolving and war-torn world. A compelling and memorable read.

— Lynn Sheene, author of <i>The Last Time I Saw Paris</i>

“Robson’s skillful ability with detail and setting firmly relates the grotesqueries of war without gratuitous gore. Her deft touch as a storyteller keeps readers engaged in the story of the lovers, as well as illuminating the bigger picture of the war raging around them”

— Publishers Weekly

“Utterly engaging and richly satisfying, Somewhere in France depicts the very best in love and war. Fans of Downton Abbey will devour this novel!”

— Erika Robuck, Bestselling author of <i>Call Me Zelda</i>
