General Note:
"The women of Smith College go to war" -- cover
Summary, etc.:
Eschewed by her wealthy Smith College classmates, a former scholarship student reluctantly volunteers to join a group of graduates who travel to Europe to help World War I French civilians before finding herself surrounded by desperate families in villages decimated by German bombs.
"April, 1917. The Smith College Club is looking for volunteers to help French civilians decimated by the German war machine. Kate Moran reluctantly agrees to join the new Smith College Relief Unit. The group, including two trailblazing female doctors, arrives in France armed with money, supplies, and good intentions-- all of which immediately go astray. The château that was to be their headquarters is a half-burnt ruin; women and children huddle in damp cellars, their crops destroyed and their wells poisoned. As the Smith volunteers cope with the hardships and terrors of the war, Kate and her colleagues find themselves navigating old rivalries and new betrayals which threaten the very existence of the Unit."--Publisher.
