Patsy Pritchard, a military nurse, is averse to dating, so when her eccentric aunt (isn't there always an eccentric relative?) sets her up on a date with Ray Darling, she's resistant. Pretty typical American Romance, but the writing is better than a lot of them.
Nurse Patsy Pritchard wears her hospital uniform like camouflage gear, hiding a lonely heart she's declared off-limits to the men who try to get close.
Then her eccentric aunt concocts a campaign with a handsome sergeant in mind, and Patsy knows her conflicts will only get worse unless there's an unconditional surrender.
Ray Darling has seen his share of hot spots and tough places, but getting through to the lovely blue-eyed blonde may be the hardest challenge yet. And just when his hopes appear to be more than dreams, he's sent overseas and the gulf between him and Patsy is wider than ever.
