Book Information

Okay - only minor mentions thus far of warm weather, droughts and lack of rain - which is just as well because this is, so far, a very interesting book.

From the Blurb:

Melbourne, 1919.  Nurses returning from the Great War are once again risking their lives, this time putting themselves in the firing line of a deadly disease:  the Spanish 'Flu.

On the frontline is Sister Eleanor Jones.  Her family torn by death and shell shock, Eleanor does what she can for the sick, among them the likeable Jimmy Cotton, in the temporary hospital hastily set up in the grand Melbourne Exhibition Building.

But there is one death that she cannot prevent.
