Rainbow - The Story of Rania MacPhillamy

Jennifer Horsfield

This remarkable story is the result of the discovery of hundreds of letters and photographs preserved by Rania MacPhillamy's family. The beautiful and accomplished daughter of a wealthy squatter, Rania left Australia in 1915 to work in a Cairo hospital treating the wounded from Gallipoli. Following the death of her soldier sweetheart she stayed on in Egypt and together with Alice Chisholm, set up a series of canteens for the men of the Light Horse. These canteens provided a restful and civilised haven, and the one contact with home for the men of the Egypt and Palestine campaigns. Winner of the 2008 Best Non-Fiction Book Award from the ACT Writers Centre.

Softcover, photographs, 254 pages.
