Roses in Her Cell

Roses in Her Cell

ByDaniel Allen Butler

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
When the Germans invaded Belgium in 1914, British nurse Edith Cavell was determined to keep the hospital she ran outside Brussels neutral, and provide medical care for any wounded soldier, no matter what uniform he wore. But when she learned that the German Army had begun shooting British prisoners of war, she found that neutrality was impossible. Over a span of eleven months she helped more than 200 wounded British “Tommies” evade capture and make their way back to Great Britain. She was discovered, arrested, tried for treason and sentenced to death. Roses in Her Cell is an emotionally-charged recreation of the last hours of Edith Cavell’s life, as she confronts and questions how her own moral and ethical beliefs have carried her to her fate. Laced with flashes of wit and touches of romance, Roses in Her Cell is an enthralling portrait of the penultimate moment of the life of a remarkable woman.
