Book Description

The 'War to end all Wars', as seen through the eyes of three young women. the 'War to end all Wars', as seen through the eyes of three young women It is 1915. War is being fought on a horrific scale in the trenches of France, but it might as well be a world away from sixteen-year-old New Zealander Midge Macpherson, at school in England learning to be a young lady. But the war is coming closer: Midge's brothers are in the army, and her twin, tim, is listed as 'missing' in the devastating defeat of the Anzac forces at Gallipoli . Desperate to do their bit - and avoid the boredom of school and the restrictions of Society - Midge and her friends Ethel and Anne start a canteen in France, caring for the endless flow of wounded soldiers returning from the front. Midge, recruited by the over-stretched ambulance service, is thrust into carnage and scenes of courage she could never have imagined. And when the war is over, all three girls - and their Anzac boys as well - discover that even going 'home' can be both strange and wonderful. Exhaustively researched but written with the lightest of touches, this is Jackie French at her very best. Ages 12+

Book Review: Rose for the Anzac Boys by Jackie French - Reviewed by (03 Jun 2011)

A Rose for the Anzac Boys is a lovely story by Jackie French. Commenting on war and the damage it brings to those in it and surrounding it, this book is profound and has a haunting quality. As Midge grows up, she naively decides to seek adventure over a eventless life. She arrives at the battlefront, and is immediately confronted with people and their horrific tragic tales from around the war-zone. We go with her on this journey, as Midge grows up into a young women with a great personality. But the war, like all things, ends. What will Midge do? Or rather, what can she do?
