Summary
Two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. Famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, each vivacious young woman has her own dreams: Edda wants to be a doctor, Tufts wants to organize everything, Grace won't be told what to do, and Kitty wishes to be known for something other than her beauty. But stepping into womanhood in 1920s and 30s Australia, life holds limited prospects. So together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses -- a new option for women of their time
Summary
Colleen McCullough weaves a sweeping story of two sets of twins--all trained as nurses but each with her own ambitions--stepping into womanhood in 1920s and '30s Australia. Because they are two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. Yet these vivacious young women each have their own dreams for themselves. They are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, but as they step into womanhood, they are not enthusiastic about the limited prospects life holds for them. Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses--a new option for women of their time who have previously been largely limited to the role of wives, and preferably mothers
