Reviews


Mabel of the Anzacs is a very interesting story and quite unique in the way it is developed. This is a story mostly about women without any primary male character and I loved that. Indeed, the supporting cast is also mostly women and they complement the story well….the overall content is rich, historical, while also being entertaining at the same time. This is a great book that I would recommend. —Gisela Dixon for Readers’ Favorite

the characters are so memorable and likable…One aspect of this story I found most interesting was the role of women during the war as described by Mabel, who was a nurse during WWI. They were often the unsung heroes… and liked it that way. History books sing the praises of the generals, but this historical fiction story looks beyond those men to the nurses, doctors… — Roe / Goodreads

A masterful telling of the unburdening of grief and guilt, and the sweet tenderness of love. You will laugh, you may curse, and you will without a doubt cry.

What a delightful read this was. I love the characters, especially the sassy and zany Zoe. The book incorporated historical content in a lighthearted read mixed with bits of humor. The elder lady (Mabel) from World War I and the Younger lady (Zoe) from World War II found common ground and trust for each other in sharing their heartfelt memories, they became very close friends. Very well written, I loved every page.Preview Review by Shirley.
