In Falling Snow by Mary Rose Maccoll


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.
