On December 7, 1941 Sarah Elizabeth Hakobian had just completed the first four months of her three year nursing course. As she studied for her anatomy exam, with her radio playing soft background music, the distinctive voice of John Cameron Swazie interrupted the program to announce the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. In a state of shock, Sarah put down her Grays Anatomy Text, and vowed that in 1944, she would enlist. From her Armenian immigrant grandparents, where democracy was not just a word, Sarah had been immersed in patriotism and a deep love for America. Sarah's grandfather never let her forget what it meant to be able to freely practice their Christian faith, or to educate their children. In 1944, immediately after passing her state board exam to become an R.N., Sarah rushed to the recruitment office to enlist. Long sheltered by her protective, loving old world family, Sarah's enlistment opened her eyes to a vast, new world. Her adventures as a member of the 135th Evacuation Hospital had her traveling many miles through the states, and later through war-torn Europe. Deep friendships developed as she worked with fellow nurses, doctors and medics. Woven into the narrative are the historical events Sarah experienced, and the ancient towns and buildings she visited. More than exposure to the places of geographic or historical interests, Sarah's more rewarding experiences involved the patients she cared for -- brave men suffering, not only from physical wounds but wounds affecting soul and spirit. Along the way, Sarah also discovers Rob, her first special love. As the story continues post war, while a university student, Sarah rediscovers an old and special friend, destined to be her true and one final love.
