Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JaNae | 2/14/2014

    " Another great book by Lynn Austin. I'm really liking this author! She is so good at character development. I've read two of her books now and both have been about the lives of people dealing with controversial issues (slavery/racism & woman's place in the workforce/home). I love how it forces me to think about these issues that I usually conveniently avoid. I also like how she keeps things clean but still has gripping story lines. 5 stars! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 2/6/2014

    " Once again if you like history and some good clean romance, this is a great read. It takes place during WWII when women went to work in the factories to help support the war effort. It follows the lives of four different women from four completely different backgrounds. Great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 2/5/2014

    " I loved this book. My mother worked at the Glen L. Martin plant which is now Offut Air Force base and I could imagine her as one of these characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 1/9/2014

    " I really like Lynn Austin books so I was excited to read this one, but it wasn't one of my favorites. There were too many story lines and it was pretty cheesy. I didn't care for the end either. This was not one of my favorites of hers. "

    " this book started off like a league of their own, and i enjoyed. but eventually the horrendous writing gets to you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allicia | 12/18/2013

    " I like this author and her historical fiction. a good read but not as good as her other books. this could have been so much better, but oh well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 12/2/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 11/26/2013

    " This was a really good story. One of those rare novels that actually has me thinking about the characters as real people -- people I've met and gotten to know. The history of the period seems pretty accurate too. Recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 11/20/2013

    " I would really give this book three and a half stars. I loved the story line but there was a little too much religion in it for me. But the characters were likable and the story was an interesting take on history and the lives people were forced to lead. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 carol | 12/11/2012

    " I so enjoyed this book thank you again Ms. Austin for a winner your the best, please give us more!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 9/8/2012

    " The overall plot was pretty predictable, and the writing was not very complex, but this was an enjoyable read due to the historical context and the themes it explored. Not a "must read" but great for a quick read or beach book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindy | 8/3/2012

    " Interesting, but a little quaint, about working women during WW2. I liked the story but got fed up with the "goodness" of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Dahlberg | 5/26/2012

    " The story and the good character development kept my interest but the immature writing made me whince at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marn Mg | 4/2/2012

    " Easy read and I'm sure mostly everyone could relate to something in this book. It has a lot to say. The author changes voices very well and is able to maintain the different characters. I borrowed this book from my Grandpa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josianne Fitzgerald | 3/21/2012

    " A lovely story about four American women during WWII. Lots of change in all the characters. A little too much Bible at the end, but all in all, a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 3/19/2012

    " I good story and very wholesome. Women during the course of WWII who learn to become independent, resourceful and take a part in the war effort. Some men are willing to accept change and others find it more difficult. We also see changes in attitudes of prejudice of all kinds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amitoj | 2/27/2012

    " Luvd this one... Its amazing.. Lynn Austin is superb.. It portrays the real worth of women as women are no less than men in any field... Worth reading.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victorianromantic | 1/13/2012

    " I actually got in trouble with the public library for not returning this book, if that says anything in itself... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 12/13/2011

    " I really liked the first half of the book. Around page 200 I thought the religious references were a bit too much & distracted from the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 11/2/2011

    " The characters are flat and stereotypical--especially most of the men. The character development is predictable. And the author intentionally manipulates her audience's opinion of the different male characters. Not one of Austin's better novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lupe Relles | 10/11/2011

    " It was interesting how different each of the four characters in the book were so different from one another and yet became friends. I like how Lynn adds historical facts to her fiction. So you not only enjoy a good story, but learn historical facts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marijoke | 7/21/2011

    " Liked to read about the emancipation of women during WOrld War II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 6/12/2011

    " I liked this book a lot. It seemed a little drawn on towards the end, but there was always dialogue, so it wasn't boring by any means. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauri | 5/15/2011

    " One of the best choices for our Lit & Latte group. My favorite of the year! Sept '10. "

    " 4 women from different lifestyles who become friends while working in a factory in WWII. I love reading about that time period, but the book was kind of cheesy and just okay. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 2/13/2011

    " I loved the characters in this story. I was very disappointed at the end though, I wanted the book to keep going!!!! I hope Lynn Austin does a sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/15/2011

    " Although long, this book, set during WWII, is an easy read. Don't be fooled. This book is not about creating liberated women. It is, however, about changing attitudes in many aspects of life. Good or bad? It's a little preachy, but nonetheless food for thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/4/2010

    " Thank you Sandy for suggesting this book. I really enjoyed it. In fact I got THE VICTORY CLUB from the library. It was recommended after the CD was over. "
