About Her

Overview… a nurse working on the Italian front during World War I. Catherine is a dedicated caregiver who took up the post while mourning her fiancé, who died in the war. Then she meets a charismatic lieutenant with a knee injury. Now, Catherine is torn between her love for Lieutenant Henry and her calling as a nurse.

Personality… strong, brave, and devoted. A wartime nurse is not a simple duty: Catherine faces the bloody reality of combat on an hourly basis. Despite the difficulty of her job, she shows no fear in the face of all this loss and bloodshed. The only thing she’s scared of is the rain: “I’m afraid of the rain because sometimes I see me dead in it.”
