None of Us the Same

By Jeffrey K. Walker

Historical fiction, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Fiery Deirdre Brannigan hated even the idea of war in 1914. But a horrific family loss leads her and her uncanny Irish ways into service as a military nurse. Meanwhile, Newfoundlanders Jack Oakley and Will Parsons gather with boyhood pals at their beloved lighthouse, deciding to embark together on the grand adventure of war. After all, the whole affair surely won’t last long... Each faces their own terrible truth in the carnage of France — and none will be the same. How did it go so horribly wrong? When the guns fall silent, can Deirdre overcome her lingering guilt and hidden demons through a new life with Jack, himself battered and struggling to forge a place for himself at the edge of a wounded Empire? Can shell-shocked Will bear the weight of his crushing memories and his domineering father’s expectations? Can they move beyond their shared history of suffering and loss to find love and a little contentment?
