My Book Review of GIRLS ON THE LINE

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another View of WWI & Womanhood

I loved this story. It was real to history and powerful while maintaining patriotism, romance, and action. It gave a truthful depiction of society in the early 1900s but still offered a story of sisterhood, empowerment, and “class” is found in deed opposed to dollar.

What I loved was the relationship between Ruby, Evangeline, and Margot. I absolutely feel in love with Andrew – what a wonderful man! It was really moving for me to connect with a fellow female soldier and to see how her experiences compared to mine.

What I disliked was the way the Signal-corps women were treated post-war. It didn’t surprise me, considering the era and based on some of my own experiences, but it was still disheartening. At least the ending gave me hope…

This was well written. Anyone who values historical fiction will treasure this book. It’s also great for those who want to read great women’s fiction, clean romance, WWI period pieces, or war stories. It’s engaging and well paced. I definitely recommend it!
