Bittersweet by Colleen McCullough


Set in Australia in the 1920’s, Bittersweet is the story of four sisters (two sets of twins) who thought that nothing could ever come between them.  As the girls all become nurses and enter the world of  1920’s womanhood,  the desire to break barriers without giving up love becomes first and foremost.  What they didn’t count on, however, was the sacrifices they would have to make.

I admit, I’ve never read anything by Colleen McCullough before, and my only forays into similar novels were historical fiction – emphasis on the historical.  I felt McCullough had too little history for my taste, and wrongly inserted 21st century feminist ideals into this book.  Still, the book was readable and I’ve no doubt many readers would enjoy it.  I would definitely categorize this as chick-lit.
