Do bonds between sisters ever break? Edda, Grace, Tufts and Kitty didn't think so. The four Latimer sisters, famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit and ambition, have always been close; always happy. But then they left home to train as nurses, swapping the feather beds of their father's townhouse for the spartan bunks of hospital accommodation. And now, as the Depression casts its shadow across Australia, they are bound by their own secret desires as the world changes around them. Will they find the independence they crave? Or is life - like love - always bittersweet? 'As clever, compelling and as down-to-earth as its four heroines' Australian Women's Weekly

Finally picked this up off my "I'll get to ti some day" shelf. Although the one (well 2) characters drove me a bit crazy at times, it was so interesting to follow the lives of these four sisters (2 sets of twins different mothers) post WWI and during the depression in Australia. seeing that time period through Aussie eyes.

Thank you for the book sing-song. I enjoy these porch drop-offs to keep reading something new to me!

Journal Entry 5 by rureading at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Wednesday, October 5, 2022
This was a difficult book for me. I was too impatient to follow the 4 storylines of the sisters, and then I lost interest completely when the author gave historical background of the political events of the time period.
I enjoyed The Thorn Birds when it came out years ago and maybe I had more patience then for McCullough's writing.
