Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Naomi and Sally, two sisters who are also nurses, leave New South Wales for nursing assignments in the Great war. Their first work is in Alexandria in Egypt, then off the Dardanelles and finally in northern France. Their relationships with each other, with the nurses with whom they serve, the wounded soldiers they encounter and the men they come reluctantly to love all play out in a book that is always hopeful even in the midst of carnage. I wondered if this book of nursing terribly damaged soldiers would get too grim. It doesn’t. It’s as good as Pat Barker’s Great War trilogy I think among the best of that era. And, oh, what an ending Keneally’s book has. A very good book.
