THE DAUGHTERS OF MARS by Thomas Keneally
From the acclaimed author of Schindler’s List, the epic, unforgettable story of two sisters from Australia, both trained nurses, whose lives are transformed by the cataclysm of the first World War.
“Extraordinarily moving… Keneally is a master of character development and period detail…. Fans of Downton Abbey and Gallipoli alike will find much to admire in Keneally’s fast-moving, flawlessly written pages.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“May be the best novel of Keneally’s career… a book that aims for, and achieves, real grandeur.”
—The Spectator, One of the Best Books of 2012 (UK)
“Greatly detailed, alternately fast-moving and slow, this story boasts authentic characters set in equally authentic locations.”
