The Indomitable Spirit
Until Then by Gail Kittleson is a Christian historical novel covering the war years 1943-1945. It is an epic read that will break your heart.
Clearly Gail Kittleson has thoroughly researched her topic both on the home front and on the continent as a medical army camp moves around tending the wounded. Both locations faced their own hardships as they witness death and destruction.
Life in war torn London is viewed through the eyes of a policeman. He witnesses horrors that he cannot ‘unsee’ and is haunted by memories.
Likewise there are horrors seen on the continent through the eyes of the nurses. Camaraderie helps them to cope with the horrors of war. At times they laugh because otherwise they would cry. I must admit I chuckled in horror at the latrine incident.
Until Then is a powerful novel about the horrors of war and the indomitable spirit of the allies. People band together in support and to boost morale.
Gail Kittleson always writes novels that inform and educate as well as being jolly good tales. Until Then is a marvellous read that I can highly recommend.
