Description - The Angel of Waterloo by Jackie French

The powerful new novel from master storyteller Jackie French

The soldiers she saved called her the Angel of Waterloo.

The husband she loved and lost called her Hen.

The patients she treated in secret called her Auntie Love.

She was Henrietta Bartlett, a surgeon's daughter, a survivor of the Napoleonic Wars. But now the battlefield is just a blood-soaked memory, and Hen dreams of peace, a home, and a society that allows women to practise medicine.

On the other side of the world, the newly founded colony of New South Wales seems a paradise. But Europe's wars cast long shadows ...

From bestselling author Jackie French comes the story of one woman's journey from the hell of Waterloo to colonial Australia, where she can forge her own dreams in a land of many nations.
