    Determined to do something meaningful with her Oxford education, Charlotte Brown is disappointed that the only position she can find is as governess in the household of the Earl of Cumberland. After a few years, she is able to move on to a more satisfying job in Liverpool, but not before falling in love with Edward, the Cumberland heir. When WWI breaks out, Charlotte goes to London to be a nurse in a neurological hospital, an experience that serves her well when Edward returns from the war suffering from shell shock. The two of them retreat to a cottage on one of his estates so she can help him recover. Edward is in love with her, too, but feels duty-bound to marry an heiress in order to restore the family fortunes. Although it's no surprise that Charlotte and Edward end up together, what might have been a standard romance is elevated by details of Charlotte's life at work and in the Liverpool boardinghouse she shares with other working girls. Echoes of some aspects of Downton Abbey add to the novel's appeal. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
