Overview
Colleen McCullough s new, romantic Australian novel about four unforgettable sisters taking their places in life during the tumultuous years after World War I is just as epic as her ultra-romantic classic, "The Thorn Birds" ("Marie Claire").
Because they are two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. Yet each of these vivacious young women has her own dream for herself: Edda wants to be a doctor, Grace wants to marry, Tufts wants never to marry, and Kitty wishes to be known for something other than her beauty. They are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, but as they step into womanhood at the beginning of the twentieth century, life holds limited prospects for them.
Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses a new option for women of their time. As the Latimer sisters become immersed in hospital life and the demands of their training, each must make weighty decisions about love, career, and what she values most. The results are sometimes happy, sometimes heartbreaking, but always bittersweet.
Set against the background of a young and largely untamed nation, filled with humor, insight, and captivating historical detail, McCullough s latest is a wise and warm tribute to family, female empowerment, and her native land ("People")."
