From the acclaimed author of Schindler's List, the new novel that has been called the best of Thomas Keneally's career, and hailed as "magnificent...stunning...full of suspense, searing particulars, and deep emotion" (The Guardian).In 1915, Naomi and Sally Durance, two spirited Australian sisters, join the war effort as nurses, escaping the confines of their father's farm and carrying a guilty secret with them. Used to tending the sick as they are, nothing could have prepared them for what they confront, first on a hospital ship near Gallipoli, then on the Western Front. Yet amid the carnage, the sisters become the friends they never were at home and find themselves courageous in the face of extreme danger and also the hostility from some on their own side. There is great bravery, humor, and compassion, too, and the inspiring example of the remarkable women they serve alongside. In France, where Naomi nurses in a hospital set up by the eccentric Lady Tarlton while Sally works in a casualty clearing station, each meets an exceptional man: the kind of men for whom they might give up some of their newfound independence--if only they all survive. At once vast in scope and extraordinarily intimate, The Daughters of Mars brings World War I vividly to life from an uncommon perspective. Thomas Keneally has written a remarkable novel about suffering and transcendence, despair and triumph, and the simple acts of decency that make us human even in a world gone mad.

Thomas Keneally began his writing career in 1964 and has published twenty-five novels since. They include SCHINDLER'S ARK, which won the Booker Prize in 1982 and was subsequently made into the film Schindler's List, and THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH, CONFEDERATES and GOSSIP FROM THE FOREST, each of which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His most recent novels are THE WIDOW AND HER HERO, THE PEOPLE'S TRAIN and THE DAUGHTERS OF MARS. He has also written several works of non-fiction, including his boyhood memoir HOMEBUSH BOY, THE COMMONWEALTH OF THIEVES and SEARCHING FOR SCHINDLER. He is married with two daughters and lives in Sydney.
