Summer Reading Adult Book Review: Bittersweet
Book Title: Bittersweet
Author: Colleen McCullough
Review: The story takes place in the 1920s in New South Wales. The book is about 2 sets of twins, the well educated and beautiful Latimer sisters. In a time where medicine and even education was only for men, the Latimer sisters break through the barriers and train to be nurses. All have different goals in life, but the training will be their stepping stone to their life ambitions. All four women have "their special dream" but soon find out life doesn't always go according to their plans.
This book is from the author of Thorn Birds. The plot has many twists and turns and you can't help but like and admire all four women who are unique in their personality's even if they look like each other. The Latimer sisters were way ahead of their time with what they accomplished in their careers and personal lives.
Sit back and enjoy this well written book.
