The War Nurse: A WW II Family Saga

Published:2014

Genre: Historical Thriller, Family Saga

Synopsis: Katarina Stahl, an American Red Cross nurse in Manila, is the happiest she’s ever been in her life. She’s making love and playing music with Jack Gallagher in an idyllic paradise. Their medical mission is over, the boat tickets to home are purchased, and all that remains is to fly a sick child to the hospital at Clark Air Field. She never expected to witness bombs falling out of planes.

In those terrifying first minutes, she frees a German doctor accused of spying and saves his life. She turns to nursing the injured, unaware she’s unleashed an obsession more dangerous to her and those she loves, than the war she’s trapped in.

When Josep Stahl’s family is swept up in the FBI’s dragnet in New York, he believes it’s all a misunderstanding. He’s interrogated like a criminal at the city jail, a military camp, Ellis Island, and then the civilian internment camps in Texas. His anger and pride blind him. One by one, his wife and sons join him behind barbed wire in America. They face ostracism, segregation, and, most frightening, repatriation.

In Manila, Katarina begins an even more terrifying journey into depraved darkness as Manila descends into occupation and chaos. The doctor she saved turns on her and threatens everyone she loves: infant son, POW husband, and Filipino friends. She’ll do anything to protect them; she lies, steals, and smuggles. As the war turns against the Japanese, they withhold the doctor’s wife’s life-saving medications until he finds a hidden radio inside the civilian internment camp. If Katarina refuses to help him, her son pays the price.

Survival has corrupted Katarina; but she’s not about to become his camp rat. After years of hell, she’s earned her nickname, war nurse. Doctor von Wettin is about to find out what that means.
