Lucilla Andrews was only eighteen when, as a volunteer nurse at the beginning of the second world war, she experienced the grim realities of wartime . Young, inexperienced and coming from a comfortable and sheltered background, she found herself dealing with survivors from Dunkirk and the victims of the blitz. Seeing these horrors at first hand had a profound and lasting effect upon her, and made her determined to train as a Nurse at St Thomas's Hospital. No Time For Romance is her story, the powerful and moving account of a young girl in wartime London, learning the hard way about medicine, injuries and death, as well as love and hope. It is a story both of personal courage and of the courage of the British people at war.

Lucilla Andrews was born in Suez, the daughter of an English father and a Spanish mother. She went to school in England and wrote her first (unpublished) novel at the age of eleven. During World War II she trained as a nurse at St Thomas's Hospital in London. Lucilla Andrews later became one of Britain's leading romantic novelists, and many of her books draw upon her own experiences of her medical background. Lucilla Andrews lived in Edinburgh during the later part of her life, and she died there in 2006, aged 86. No Time For Romance is her vivid real-life account of her wartime nursing experiences.Review :
