I loved every minute of it. She became a heroine of mine, but the author high-lighted all Caterina's unlovable traits too! No bull-shine! And the research was amazing. A fabulous book!

This book sits permanently on my kitchen counter. The healthy recipes are great, (especially the bread one) and the home made muesli is divine. If only all nurses had a copy handy, they could learn much about their own health, and their patients too. An excellent present for your friends and for family members too.And I hope all nursing schools have a copy in the library!

I am writing a children's book. I read Germania to see what teens liked I was spellbound. Atmospheric, full of action, imagery, and a good yarn. Brilliant book, and I recommend it for adults and teens alike

This review is from: Former People (Kindle Edition)
I couldn't put this book down I have no sympathy for the aristocrats who brought about their own demise BUT it was simply fascinating to read about the individual stoicism, and the extraordinary bravery among the survivors. A well researched book, and a brilliant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An important woman in the history of women's suffrage and personal freedom., 13 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This gripping and powerful story of Mary Seacole's courage in the face of rejection and adversity,is utterly compelling. Mary Seacole, a black woman from Jamaica, with no illustrious relations,no money or connections overcomes her disadvantages. She pursues her plans to nurse the soldiers fighting in the Crimea.Florence Nightingale has the connections, the money and above all the political backing to open up a hospital in the Crimea. Mary Seacole has no advantages.But she does have an extraordinary knowledge of medicine, and a determination to reach her goal. She has strength, energy, and a compassionate and caring nature.Her courage is beyond belief. She takes her medicines to wounded and dying soldiers on the battlefield. She finds money where there is none. She is determined to have supplies at her disposal only to pass them on to those who need them. Mary Seacole shows her business acumen in the transactions necessary to keep up her work. Not only does she behave with total self-sacrifice, she instills courage and determination to all those who come into her orbit.Julia Buss tells her story without sentimentality. She draws the reader into a world where women have little power, but cleverly paints a picture of a woman whose power is profound.This woman is Mary Seacole. Buss takes us into a world war and disease.We hear the noise of battle, the voices of human suffering,we feel the misery of those who are diseased and dying. But she points at a shining light throughout. The heroic and indefatigable figure of Mary Seacole.Julia Buss has written a story that will contribute to Seacole's eminent place in history.
