From the international bestselling author of Room. In an Ireland doubly ravaged by war and disease, Nurse Julia Power works at an understaffed hospital in the city centre, where expectant mothers who have come down with an unfamiliar Flu are quarantined together. Into Julia's regimented world step two outsiders: Doctor Kathleen Lynn, on the run from the police, and a young volunteer helper, Bridie Sweeney. In the darkness and intensity of this tiny ward, over three days, these women change each other's lives in unexpected ways. They lose patients to this baffling pandemic, but they also shepherd new life into a fearful world. With tireless tenderness and humanity, carers and mothers alike somehow do their impossible work.

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought Donoghue's publisher thus fast-tracked the book to publication (it was originally due out in 2021), and the result is The Pull of the Stars, set in Dublin near the end of World War I in a busy makeshift ward for pregnant patients who have contracted the potentially deadly strain of flu. In The Pull of the Stars, Emma Donoghue once again finds the light in the darkness in this new classic of hope and survival against all odds. Haiku summary: Add to Your books.
