About the Author
TRACEY ENERSON WOOD is a published playwright whose family is steeped in military tradition. Katharine, the Wright Sister is her fourth novel.

"In The War Nurse, based on the true story of pioneering WWI nurse Julia Stimson, we are transported to early 20th century France, where a band of medical professionals struggles to meet the ever-changing demands of a war zone. You will smile, shed a few tears, and learn alongside Julia in this impeccably researched, well-drawn, based-on-a-true-story tale, written by a former RN. As our collective interest in WWI is reawakened, The War Nurse shines an important light on a woman whose story was, until now, lost to time." -- Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

"The War Nurse is a rich, gripping history of one woman's lifelong battle against systemic prejudice." -- Stewart O'Nan, award-winning author of The Good Wife

"Once again, Tracey Enerson Wood, with her impeccable research and evocative prose, kept me glued to the page. Wood has a talent for bringing strong, yet lesser-known women from history, to life. Her fictionalization of WWI nurse Julia Stimson, as well as the supporting cast, transported me back in time, had me smiling, crying, and learning. Fantastic!" -- Linda Rosen, author of The Disharmony of Silence

"The War Nurse is a vividly rendered, moving tribute to one woman's determination to make a difference in the world. Tracey Enerson Wood sets us down in war-ravaged France and immerses us in the lives of a band of courageous nurses braving battles both physical and moral. A riveting and surprisingly timely story of courage, sacrifice, and friendship forged at the front lines." -- Kelly Mustian, author of The Girls in the Stilt House

"If you, like me, are a voyeur of historical drama that unfolds as if the kitchen window flew open and the characters were caught in action, then The War Nurse is for you. Tracey Enerson Wood's storytelling verisimilitude--the detail, persuasive dialogue, and twinning of history with a hidden love story - prove her skill at immersion, but also that rarest of traits; a big and generous heart that roots for the unsung heroines and heroes of the time. This author shines a light for us all to see our past anew." -- Diane Dewey, author of Fixing the Fates

"If you've read The Engineers Wife, Tracey Enerson Wood's debut, you are already aware of her talent for merging fact and fiction into a story that will make your heart hurt and hold you captive until the very last page. She doesn't disappoint with The War Nurse. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!" -- Barbara Conrey, USA Today bestselling author of Nowhere Near Goodbye

"The War Nurse is a fascinating, intimate look at the true story of Julia Catherine Stimson and the incredible work she and her nurses did to save lives during World War I. Through careful research, this book shows the incredible bravery and compassion of women who find themselves in extraordinary situations." -- Julia Kelly, international bestselling author of The Last Garden in England and The Light Over London
