Jennifer Neville and Richard Greystone both volunteered to serve in the Crimean War with no idea of what they would have to face. Jennifer, a nurse, cares for the wounded soldiers, one of which is Richard, left blinded after a disastrous battle. Matured by their experiences, both return home to England to discover that their newfound outlook on life is not welcome in the superficial world of Victorian society. Richard and Jennifer band together to fight the squalid conditions suffered by the poor of London. Jennifer's strong belief in God eventually leads to a spiritual awakening in Richard. Unfortunately, Richard refuses to believe that a blind man could make a suitable husband. The romance elements are a bit predictable, but the book's true power lies in Crow's (To Be Worthy, Crossway, 1996) realistic depiction of Victorian England. Engrossing reading.
