The Daughters of Mars
From the acclaimed author of Schindler's List (1982) comes the epic, unforgettable story of two sisters whose lives are transformed by the cataclysm of the First World War. In 1915, Naomi and Sally Durance, two spirited Australian sisters, join the war effort as nurses. Nothing has prepared them for what they confront, first on a hospital ship near Gallipoli, then on the Western Front. In France, each meets an exceptional man: the kind of men for whom they might give up some of their newfound independence--if only they all survive. A remarkable and extraordinarily intimate novel.
