For fans of Vera Brittain's Testament of Youth, a bestselling writer's American debut and a heart-wrenching novel of WWI—a tale of love, regret, and the powerful draw of the road not takenIris Crane's tranquil life is shattered when a letter summons memories from her bittersweet past: her first love, her best friend, and the tragedy that changed everything. Iris, a young Australian nurse, travels to France during World War I to bring home her fifteen-year-old brother, who ran away to enlist. But in Paris she meets the charismatic Dr. Frances Ivens, who convinces Iris to help establish a field hospital in the old abbey at Royaumont, staffed entirely by women—a decision that will change her life. Seamlessly interwoven is the story of Grace, Iris's granddaughter in 1970s Australia. Together their narratives paint a portrait of the changing role of women in medicine and the powerful legacy of love. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This is a very well-crafted book. I enjoyed the way that MacColl interwove the past and present in plot lines following Iris and Grace. I found the plot and characters to be very engaging. I will read other work by this author.

Touted as International Best Seller which is one reason I bought it.
Didn't get "into" the story 'til well past mid point though I'm medical person myself, just didn't grip me 'til the end, and still wondering about parts mentioned earlier that don't seem to've been answered at all.

This sweeping novel follows the lives of the so-called "flower bird girls": Iris Crane and Violet Heron, through friendship and tragedy. Picture Clara Barton as a young Australian nurse during WWI.
