Description

In the spring of 1917, Walter "Pat" Lusk sits at his desk shuffling papers and dreaming of glory on the battlefield. Frustrated, he's convinced the Great War will remain forever out of reach until one day his friend Aubrey arrives with the thrilling news that the United States has finally declared war on Germany! With his path to adventure now clear, Pat immediately enlists in the Army, where he trains as a surgeon's assistant. Sent to France with Evacuation Hospital No. 4, will Pat finally attain the glory he seeks treating desperately wounded soldiers through the war's darkest days? Will he ever win over the redoubtable Nurse Oberholtzer? Will the Armistice bring peace to the boys of Evac 4, or does a time of even greater testing await Pat and his friends? "Maxwell's prose is straightforward and effective, and there is a refreshing lack of grandiosity in the experiences of Pat and his fellow medics..." Teresa Devine, Historical Novel Societyshow more

About Marcia Maxwell

Born and raised in the Midwest, Marcia Maxwell discovered a passion for history while working on her Ph.D. dissertation. An edition of a 14th century manuscript in Anglo-Norman French, it became the genesis of her first novel, The Rogue Queen. Then, while visiting her family one summer she learned that her grandfather's WWI letters had survived. Using paleographic skills honed in editing the medieval manuscript she transcribed and edited the letters only to find that they had been heavily censored. Undaunted, she researched the Great War, the Army Medical Department, and gathered her father's oral version of his father's adventures, for Granddad had shared them with no one else. For Two Cents, I'll Go With You is based on his true story.show more
