    Bittersweet follows the lives of four sisters - two pairs of twins. Edda, Grace, Kitty, and Tufts are about to become the first batch of nurses to be professionally trained in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. For Edda, it is the closest she can come to her dream of being a doctor. For Grace, the hospital is a terrifying place of sickness and mess, while Tufts discovers her hidden talents. For Kitty, it is a way to escape the suffocating love of her mother, who can see nothing beyond Kitty's astonishing beauty.

    Story

    I am a big fan of Colleen McCullough. I have read most of her books and I am looking forward to her next! Having been a nurse in my earlier years straight from school in Australia I recognised some of the aspects of the nursing way of life that Colleen describes. Life was quite strict for a nurse even in the late 60's and 70's. I loved the historical setting and the characters portrayed. It is not attempting to be a great piece of literature but it held my interest throughout. It was entertaining and charming with twists that made it work well.
