All Quiet on the Western Plains

Title: All Quiet on the Western Plains
Author: Isabella Hargreaves
Genre: Historical Romance
Publication Date: May 1, 2014

English nurse Fleur Armitage wants to escape all reminders of the Great War, which killed family, friends and patients - by living as far from its reminders as possible - in outback Queensland. Jack Edgarson is a war hero, pastoralist and damaged man. Suffering from nightmares and sleep walking, he fears he may harm someone, so lives in isolation. Through a chance meeting, their lives become entangled. They come to share a love of the wide western plains, but dare they love each other?

My 4 Star Review
Running as far from the war as possible Fleur finds herself in a quaint little town. 
After fighting in the war, nightmares drove Jack as far away from his hometown as possible. 
After helping Fleur out, she tracks Jack down to thank him. Will they be able to break down walls and help each other chase away the nightmares and feelings of loss. This isn't my usual go to genre but I do occasionally enjoy it and am so glad I read this one. I will be looking for more books by this author! 
I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good historical romance.
