Summary
"This is rare, soldier. She sees death... but to you, it will come four times." "In a small town in country Australia, railway man George Bingham toils away, dreaming of adventure in far-off lands. When the call for Great War volunteers comes, he leaves behind his worn mattock and his first love, jumping the first ship to set sail for a stricken Europe. As the war moves from Gallipoli to the Somme, George becomes 'Sunflower', enduring squalid trenches and immeasurable heartbreak, a prophecy foretold by a beautiful Bedouin in the backstreets of a Cairo marketplace. As George struggles to reclaim his humanity amid the tragedy, he meets a French nurse who heals his wounds and teaches him to dream again. A novel of war, survival and love, Sunflower proves the redemptive power of hope in the hideousness of battle."
