The Daughters of MarsThe Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Technical detail is bugging me. Author keeps having the nurses put on gloves. I did a web search and from what I can find, nurses wouldn't have been wearing gloves in the early 1900's. Surgeons were starting to glove up but they were thick and cumbersome at that time.
I had high expectations for this book and they just weren't met. If felt like there was a ton of potential but the author only scratched the surface.

Review based on an advanced copy received from the publisher.
