    In what is perhaps "the best novel of his career" ("The Spectator"), the acclaimed author of "Schindler's List" tells the unforgettable story of two sisters whose lives are transformed by the cataclysm of the first world war.
    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. Amid the carnage, the sisters' tenuous bond strengthens as they bravely face extreme danger and hostility--sometimes from their own side. There is great humor and compassion, too, and the inspiring example of the incredible women they serve alongside. In France, each meets an exceptional man, the kind for whom she might relinquish her newfound independence-- if only they all survive.
    At once vast in scope and extraordinarily intimate, "The Daughters of Mars" is 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.
