Pauline Vijverberg Reviews Angels of Mercy by Chris Schoeman

Angels of MercyVerdict: carrot

THIS is a book about 12 remarkable women who helped many soldiers and children with their skills as nurses or teachers in the Anglo-Boer War, from 1899 to 1902.

Motivated by a sense of adventure and patriotism or inspired by the tales of Florence Nightingale, these women from New Zealand, Canada, Australia, England, Holland, Belgium and Sweden courageously set off to a country at war, withlittle idea of what to expect.
