This book is written by Hemingway and it’s called A Farewell to Arms and it’s based on Hemingway’s own experiences at the time of the first world war. He is an ambulance driver in Italy and he falls in love with an English nurse and they have a romance together. At the beginning of the book the main character which is based on Hemingway himself is wounded in war and then he spends a lot of time in hospital and of course his love English nurse is there all time.
I’m at the halfway of the book at the moment, so I don’t know about the end, but right before you came, the English nurse told the man she is pregnant.
