July Online ebook club – Amy by Peggy Savage

AmyThis month we’re looking at a lesser-known novel for our online ebook club, Amy by Peggy Savage. Dr Amy Richmond, after being falsely accused and struck off the medical register travels to France to work as an orderly during World War  I. She is hoping to rebuild her reputation and regain her medical licence. It is amongst the suffering of the first world war that Amy discovers the meaning of sacrifice, hope and love.

Here are some discussion questions to get you started:

1. What does the book tell you about women in the medical profession at that time? How differently are they treated?

2. What did you think of the tone of the novel? How did it portray the First World War? Was it believable?

3. Could you relate to any of the characters? Were there any characters you loved or hated?

4. What did you think of the ending to the novel?

5. Did this novel change your perspective in any way?
