’The Backwash of War’ by Ellen N. La Motte. ‘The Human Wreckage of the Battlefield as Witnessed by an American Nurse’. She was one of many inspirational women nurses at that time. My mother is also a nurse, nursing is a true vocation for my mother. She is also a member of The Red Cross & recently received her 20 years of service ‘Red Cross Medal’. All this was the inspiration I needed to design Clara!
