Where Poppies Grow by Emily Sharratt

The third book in the personal and moving coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of the First World War. Winter, 1916. Ellie is determined to leave tiny Endstone village and follow her dream of becoming a nurse. But leaving home and starting work in the city hospital also means leaving behind her first-love and childhood friend, Jack. They promise to make it work, but with Ellie's time swallowed up by the chaos of a wartime hospital, and with the charms of an exciting young foreign soldier to keep her company, do Ellie and Jack stand any chance of staying together as their lives move ever further apart?
