How‘s that for a rather different book title?!

I borrowed this from the library for #mummysquirrel who loves books about women travellers. I thought I‘d try it myself first and actually really enjoyed it!

Kate Marsden was a nurse who travelled to leper colonies in Siberia in 1890 - 1892, with the patronage of Queen Victoria and the Tsarina of Russia. As you can imagine, her journey was long and incredibly arduous.

A really interesting read.
