It’s bingo Saturday once again – that rolled around fast! The square I’ve filled for this entry is:
A book written by an Australian woman
Not quite as easy to come up with a title for this category as you might have thought, which is why I’ve left it for so long. I have so many excellent titles to choose from. Anyway, I have settled on The Desert Nurse by Pamela Hart, one of my top reads for this year.
You can always rely on Pamela Hart to write an authentic Australian story that is true to its era with a focus on the incredible Australian women who have shaped our nation’s history. With crossovers to characters from her previous WWI novels, Pamela shows just how small our nation was at the time of WWI, highlighting the enormous sacrifice Australians gave to the fight for world peace. What a great tribute this story is, to our nation’s WWI effort. What an honourable representation of the heroic work done by our desert nurses. I highly recommend The Desert Nurse as one of my top reads of the year so far.
This year I’m playing book bingo with Mrs B’s Book Reviews. On the first and third Saturday of each month, we’ll post our latest entry. We’re not telling each other in advance what we’re currently reading or what square we’ll be filling next; any coincidences are exactly that – and just add to the fun!
