It’s January 1944 and the Battle of Anzio is in full swing. The Americans of the U.S. Army Third Division are having a very rough time. Anthony is out in the field for weeks on end. Tessa is at the field hospital. She also finds herself in direct line of enemy fire. No one is safe from the German bombs, not even the hospital or medical ships.
The medic, Jesse Gardner, plays a bigger part in this story. He and Tessa spend more time together in this story. His attraction for Tessa, first seen in the second book, has turned into something more. Jesse’s unrequited love for her is heart-breaking, but Tessa’s friendship seems to be changing the way Jesse looks at life.
Anthony is in great turmoil. He is still trying to gain respect of his troops while trying to keep them as safe as possible. This is made more difficult with his captain making ill-advised choices that lead to large casualties. At one point Anthony has to make a decision, to follow the captain’s orders --which will cause major loss of life-- or do what is best for the soldiers, regardless of what happens to his army career.
In this book we get to see the internal struggles of the characters, particularly Jesse and Anthony. We also see the horrors and difficulties facing the nurses and personnel on the beachhead. Alexa Kang does an amazing job describing the hellish conditions of war on the battlefield.
Secondary characters from the previous book are also in this one. Tessa’s friend and fellow nurse, Gracie is wooed by Jesse. Despite their affection for one another, Dr. Haley and Ellie have not made their feelings known to one another, in large part to Fran Milton’s interference. I’m hoping for a happy ending for these two.
Alexa Kang is a born story-teller. I have read all three books and I think this is the best one yet. I’ve learned so much about the Battle of Anzio from this book. I am invested in the characters and I can’t wait to read the conclusion of this series.
