RAJ & NORAH IS BASED ON THE TRUE STORY OF THEIR PARENTS/GRANDPARENTS
written by a father-daughter duo.
Rajendra Singh Kohli, an Indian Sikh, had led Muslim men of the 3/1 Punjab Regiment into battle against the Germans in Libya and Italy, losing many young soldiers he had grown strong friendships with. While in battle, he was gravely injured while saving his fellow men in an ambush, but miraculously survived. He was nursed back to health by a dedicated British nurse, Sister Eggleton, in Italy.
Norah Elizabeth Eggleton, a Royal Army nurse in Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, (QAIMNS) could not have possibly imagined what war would bring. Like most volunteering for the war, she was responding to her inner voice of duty and encountered death and destruction, but also found her purpose in saving lives.
As fate would have it, Raj was under the care of Norah, when he was rescued, and before long, they fell in love. But would they ever have a chance at a life together, or would circumstance forbid it? A story that is bound to captivate readers across the world, RAJ & NORAH (working title), is an immersive true story of love found, lost and re-claimed during World War II. This book aims to honor a true wartime story where courage, loyalty, and above all, love, are entangled within every page.
