THE GIRLS FROM THE BEACH
BY ANDIE NEWTON
Digital Publication Date: July 8, 2021
Paperback Publication Date: January 2022
Genre: Historical Fiction
‘We’d heard stories about the nurses in tent seven. A secret mission, stolen money, and spies…’
In 1944, four American nurses disappeared for five days. No one knew what happened to them. Until now.
When Kit and Red set foot on French soil during the Normandy landings, they know they have to rely on each other. As they head for the battlefield, their aim is simple: save lives. But when they’re called away on a top-secret mission to patch up a few men behind enemy lines, everything changes.
Alongside fellow nurses, Roxy and Gail, they’re told to prepare for the worst, trading in their nurses’ fatigues for civilian clothes and hiding medical supplies under their skirts. But it’s a lie. Their real mission tasks them with the impossible – to infiltrate the Reich and steal something the Nazis desperately need to win their losing war.
In an ultimate test of courage and comradeship, each woman must decide what she is prepared to risk and what she has to live for.

This is a spoiler free review, I am not going to giveaway to much of this book because it’s one to read for yourself.
Andie Newton newest book was one I was not prepared for. It’s an extraordinary emotional charged book, that takes the reader on a nail biting journey. Richly atmospheric imagery along with some of the best insightful look at the bands of friendship forged during some devastating events surrounding four courageous war nurses. I was drawn into the details of lives of theses heroic woman that make this book so good.
The grisly reality of WW2 battlefield comes to life under Newton’s skillful writing as we follow four American field nurses. The book gives the reader dual time periods present to past featuring the intense concentration on the 1940’s. We follow Red, Kit, Gail and Roxy, who find themselves serving at Lorraine near the French-German border during 1944. During a series of events the women come together and are tasked with a top secret mission that the actual truth doesn’t come to light until it’s to late.
The propulsive storyline, offering both drama and wartime authenticity will appeal to anyone interested in world war historical fiction.
The plot moves meticulously andunpredictably with several interesting twists that make the ending all the more anticipated and satisfying. The ending was so good!
