"A story set in 19th century China and centered on the lifelong friendship between two girls who develop their own secret code as a way to contend with the rigid cultural norms imposed on women"...loved this book!!!
Lyn could probably use some time with this book: Against Positive Thinking: Uncertainty as the Secret of Happiness - curated by Maria Popova at Brain Pickings.
This story of a young woman’s tour of duty as a WWII Army nurse is remarkable. Headed for a career in science, Juliet veers toward nursing in an effort to find her brother who is missing in action in Italy. Hope; love in many variations; stories of soldiers, doctors, nurses, and support staff; the wounded and dying; civilians and officers.
