Description

In the latter years of World War I, renowned Australian writer Miles Franklin travels to the Macedonian Front, joining as a nurse at the Scottish Women's Hospital near Mt. Kajmakcalan. Soldiers from many nations surge across a Macedonia that has been partitioned, absorbed by its neighbours. Its people struggle to survive in the face of staggering losses and being forcibly conscripted into foreign armies fighting on their soil.

Amidst it all, Miles captures the names and hopes of the oppressed, recording their travails, their quiet triumphs, and the turmoil of a nation affected by events beyond its control.

This fictionalised account of a short period from Miles Franklin's life is based on her own writing and contemporaneous documents, supported by extensive additions from local history and culture.
