In Falling Snow opens as Iris Crane, an elderly Australian widow struggling to keep up with daily life, receives a surprise invitation in the mail to a reunion at the ancient abbey of Royaumont, the site of a field hospital north of Paris. In the First World War, Iris served there as a nurse in a hospital run entirely by women, and the invitation opens a flood of memories—about how she came to Europe in 1914 in search of her brother, her work alongside the female doctors and administrators as the wounded soldiers flooded into the hospital, and of the dear friends she made at Royaumont who would change her family’s life forever.

A moving and uplifting novel about the small unsung acts of heroism of which love makes us capable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful historical fiction! My boss recommended this book to me and I read it in 3 nights, it was so compelling.  That was a couple weeks ago and I still think about the story often, not only of the characters but of the setting at Royaumont in WWI when it was a hospital run entirely by women. What an amazing story!  This book includes so much to talk about, I can't wait to recommend it to my book club.  I have never before been so taken with a book that I buy multiple copies to give away, until this book!
