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.
