One of our newer novels is “Bittersweet” by Colleen McCullough. Because they were two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are close – yet each has her own dreams. As they step into womanhood at the beginning of the 20th century in New South Wales life holds limited prospects. Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses, a new option for women of their time. As they become immersed in hospital life and the demands of their work, each sister must make weighty decisions about what she values most. The results are sometimes happy, sometimes heartbreaking, but always – bittersweet.
