In 1915, two spirited Australian sisters join the war effort as nurses, escaping the confines of their father's dairy farm and carrying a guilty secret with them. Used to tending the sick as they are, nothing could have prepared them for what they had to confront, first in the Dardanelles, then on the Western Front.

People found this hard to read, overwritten and too graphic on the gory details. Some really loved it and got a lot out of the detailed story about a very interesting time. A fascinating ending with two different perspectives, so worth persevering to the end. 5.5 Fetcham U3A Group 2
