in falling snow - top 5

here are the top 5 reasons to read this book about a group of women running a hospital near paris during wwI:

5.  lots of action!

4.  it reads like nonfiction because of the accurate historical details.

3.  time runs back and forth, from iris as a young nurse to iris as a great-grandmother.  events also moves from australia to paris.

2.  the story of the field hospital, royaumont, started by scottish women in a cistercian abby dating to the thirteenth century, is fascinating.

1.  iris and francis, and the other hardworking nurses and doctors, are well-rounded and believable.  they're interesting!

these five leave out almost as much as they include.

historical beauty.
happy weekend!
