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
