If you followed the Intertwined Soul Series, you will want to read this book. If you didn’t follow the series, you will still want to read this book because the characters are so memorable and likable. In this story, Zoe is 18 years old and living with her soulmate, Eva. She is still obstinate, loud, funny, and very opinionated. When Zoe meets 80 years old Mabel sparks fly… but not the good kind…angry deadly sparks. However, once both parties meet and actually talk, they discover, surprisingly, ...more

Although not ‘labelled’ as an Intertwined Souls book this is really part of that series and goes back to the days when Eva and Zoe were getting established in Australia. It is very much a ‘Domestic Drama’ without any violence or any of the paranormal incidents that came into some of the later books. The story is centered around Zoe’s relationship with Mabel, an eighty year old ex-nurse, who owns the apartments that Eva and Zoe rent.
In the main it was a very enjoyable read and the only reason I

I was lucky enough to have been given the opportunity by NetGalley to read Mabel of the Anzacs by Mary D. Brooks in exchange for an honest review. As the story began, I didn't think it was going to keep my interest but was I wrong. It did take a while for the story to develop but once it did it had my attention and I found it hard to put down. Mary D. Brooks portrayed the characters of Zoe, Eva and Mabel as believable and very human.

Mabel of the Anzacs began shortly after the end of World War II

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I simply loved the characters of Mabel, Zoe, and Eva! The Intertwined Souls series by Ms. Brooks is unfamiliar to me, but I will be on the look out for copies of these entertaining, well-written books. Historical fiction at its best in this post Australia WWII novel.

This book was funny at times, sad at others, but always held my interest thanks to the author's great writing, characters that I felt invested in, a plot that I enjoyed, and the setting of being during World War I. Highly recommend this!

It was nice to see our favorite characters, Eva and Zoe from the Intertwined Souls series, as well as minor characters and to catch up with Eva and Zoe after their immigration to Australia three years after the war. I love reading historical fiction, and this one really interested me because a lot of the historical facts in this story involved nursing during WW 1. Mary D did a great job integrating fictional characters and their story into a fascinating period in history. This was personal for ...more

This is one of the rare books I have come across where the publisher's synopsis appears to have been written by someone who has not read the book. I say this for two reasons. Firstly I had no idea that the ANZACS named in the title actually stood for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) which was a Mediterranean Expeditionary Force that operated during WWI, especially during the Battle of Gallipoli. I am excusing my ignorance due to the fact that I was born and raised a Canadian ...more
