Waterstones Says

The first instalment of an exhilarating new family saga with a unique medical angle, Dr Hilary Jones’ debut novel focuses on a mysterious and deadly new pandemic sweeping the trenches of First World War France.

A sweeping drama set on the battlefields of Europe as a global influenza pandemic looms...

Frontline is the first book in a series charting the rise of a prominent British medical family in the twentieth century. From wars to a pandemic, the discovery of penicillin to the birth of the NHS, successive generations of the Burnett family are at the vanguard of life-saving developments in medicine.

Frontline is the story of an aristocrat's daughter who joins the war effort as a nurse. In a field hospital in rural France she meets Will, a dockworker's son serving as a stretcher-bearer. As rumours of an armistice begin to circulate, so too does a mysterious respiratory illness that soldiers are referring to as the 'Spanish flu'.

“Stick with what you know best Dr Jones”

‘Frontline’ opens with a Prologue set in 1910 the sole purpose of which seems is to demonstrate the author’s medical expertise - and here (as in many other parts of the book), Dr Jones does not wear his learning... More
