Paths of DestinyLarge Print - 2004
1854: The Crimean War is in full swing. Gideon, a navvy, is there, helping to organize a contract for a stretch of railway line to transport guns and food to the soldiers. Back home in Cornwall, Alice is waiting for him. But her employer, a vicar, has recently died and his replacement doesn't want her. An orphan and ostracized by the rest of the village, she's got nowhere to go. Leaving messages for Gideon's letters to be forwarded on to her, she is taken in by the Sisters of Mercy and looks after cholera-ridden children in Plymouth. With a shortage of nurses in the Crimea, Alice finds herself given a chance to see if Gideon loves her as much as she loves him - when they can catch up with each other...
