By the international bestselling author of The Piano Tuner , a captivating and unforgettable love story between a young doctor and a nurse in a remote hospital from field during the First World War

Vienna, 1914. Lucius was a 22-year-old medical student when World War I broke out across Europe. Enthusiastic about romantic tales of battlefield operations, he reports and expects a job in a well-organized field hospital. But when he arrives at a confiscated church hidden in a remote valley in the Carpathians, he finds a frozen outpost that has been ravaged by typhus. The other doctors have fled and only a mysterious nurse named Nurse Margarete is left.

But Lucius never lifted a surgeon`s scalpel. And as war rages over the winter landscape, he falls in love with the woman, from whom he must learn a brutal and improvised medicine. Then one day an unconscious soldier is dragged out of the snow, his uniform stuffed with strange designs. He seems unable to save until Lucius makes a fateful decision that will forever change the lives of doctors, patients and nurses.

From the golden ballrooms of imperial Vienna ai the frozen forests of the eastern front; The Winter Soldier is the story of war and medicine, of family, of love in the floods of history, and finally of the mistakes we make and precious opportunities to repent.
