Deirdre's long days and nights blur together on the hospital wards. As she relentlessly struggles to save young lives, her own unravels. For the Newfoundlanders in their fine new uniforms aching to prove themselves on the field of battle, the horrors of war quickly descend.
Deirdre encounters Jack and Will when they’re brought to her field hospital the first day of the slaughter on the Somme, each silently carrying unimaginable suffering. Burdened with physical and emotional scars, their lives aimlessly diverge. Yet somehow, a glimmer of hope and redemption emerges when their paths cross once again in St. John’s. Although fragile and ragged, they are not beaten. None of Us the Same will leave you pulling for these battered survivors. Follow this unforgettable portrayal of love and war and resilience.
