I found "Flora's War" quite interesting and it was obvious Rushby had done her homework before writing this book. I loved the Egyptian setting and I enjoyed how Flora grew from a shallow, spoilt teenager, to an independent and resourceful young woman. However, I never fully engaged with Flora, and I found the romance artificial. Also, the ending was too rushed and too tidy making the book unrealistic. ( )

Summary: It’s 1915 and sixteen-year-old Australian, Flora Wentworth, is visiting Cairo with her archaeologist father. She watches with growing alarm as first a trickle and then a flood of wounded soldiers are shipped into the city from Gallipoli.
Flora’s comfortable life is turned upside down when a hospital visit thrusts her into the realities of World War 1. She is soon transporting injured soldiers and helping out exhausted nurses – managing to fall in love along the way. ( )
