This is the story of two brothers, Jonathon and Joseph White, who are caught up in the excitement of the new war in Europe in 1914 and enlist to fight the Hun. Amidst the horror of the battlefields, a love story begins. Rose is a volunteer in the Nurses Corps and risks her life close to the fighting working among the wounded and the dying.
Meeting Jonathon makes Rose realise that life is bittersweet – time is precious and falling in love may be a hopeless and painful experience. Surely no one could survive the killing in the trenches? Perhaps Rose herself won't survive the war to end all wars?
From the first landings on 25th April 1915 to the battlefields of France and Armistice Day 1918, And In The Morning is a uniquely Australian novel of war, love and courage.
