  • Not to be missed!

    historical-places-events, historical-research, historical-fiction, historical-setting, WW1***** The stories about the Kopp sisters (who are real) began early in the 20th century and progressed from there. Constance really was a deputy. The research is all on target and the references check out (bad library pun). The fiction is somewhat manufactured, but it is a case of an aggregation of real people to make history easier for us readers. So. This book is presented in the form of letters from each of the sisters, back and forth, during the last year of The War To End All Wars. Constance is presented as an operative from the department which would later become the FBI, Norma is with the Signal Corps in rural France, and Fleurette is a performer with a travelling group that is much like the later USO. The prejudice and tribulations of women in that era are put forth very clearly in the course of things. I wasn't hopeful that I would like this format as much, but I was wrong. It's the perfect way to tie things together! Loved it! I have all the others on audio, so it's a given that I am a fan (as well as a history geek). I requested and received a free ebook copy from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/Mariner Books via NetGalley. Thank you! Can't wait to see how the audio turns out!

  • Entertaining, well-researched novel

    Thanks to the author for an advance reading copy. All comments and opinions are my own. Number six in the series and just as enjoyable as the rest! This well-researched novel takes place during World War I, alternating locations between France and the US. The story is told through letters written by the three Kopp sisters and a few other letter writers. Although the sisters and others in the novel are based on real people and historical facts, author Amy Stewart entertainingly fills in the blanks to make this a fascinating story of women during the first World War. Mystery, espionage, and the Army's fledgling pigeon project are skillfully knitted together with humor and the personalities of each Kopp sister to make this another five star must-read.

  • Wonderful, Wonderful Book! Unmissable.

    You know the feeling of immersing yourself utterly and completely in an engrossing book until well past your bedtime, tired but energized from being so very invested? Well, this book was just IT for me. I was glued to every word. Absolutely captivating and enchanting, this epistolary book is set during WWI and follows three sisters and an almost sister (she becomes a dear, dear friend) who write back and forth to each other about their days and lives during a devastating time in history. Yet there is always hope. Constance is with the Bureau of Investigation and has a thrilling and exciting job investigating criminals, including the Germans. Fleurette's job couldn't be more different but important nonetheless. She uses her talent for singing and dancing to entertain downtrodden troops all over the country. Norma is in a top secret location in France where she desperately tries to think up ways to keep her pigeon carrier program running. She also solves a mystery along the way. Aggie becomes a dear friend of Norma's and is a nurse at an American hospital in France. She starts corresponding with the sisters in America and forms a close bond with them as a result. Each of the women is very unique with completely different personality traits and jobs. Reading their letters brimming with news, sad stories, fun banter, war rationing, humour, moving anecdotes, camaraderie and courage is a marvelous treat! Though the shooting is over at the end of the book the devastating effects and repercussions are not. I cannot wait to read the next installment! Amy Stewart has a glorious way with words, using no clichés but refreshingly original writing with loads of warmth and wit. She captivated me from the first word to the end, including her notes at the back. My first experience with her writing was such an adventure! In my book review notebook I've made a notation (and highlighted it) to read ALL her books. This charming page turner impressed me that much. I am also researching the bibliography information. It is obvious the author did a lot of research to write this historical fiction based on real people. The details are incredibly interesting from location descriptions to jobs to sisterly love to the horrors of war. Who should read this? Everyone with a passion for the written word but especially those interested in the WWI era and historical fiction. This would be a great introduction to historical fiction, too. My sincere thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this delightful book. Much appreciated.
