My Review Wartime Blues for the Harper Girls
This is a book about the brave women during WWI who kept things going at ‘home’. It tells of the hardships they underwent, the fear, the loss and the feeling of everything in their world being turned upside down. And yet, they dug deep and found the resources to not only survive but also take care of the family and friends and serve the larger community. Taking business decisions they’ve never had to before, they move forward as best they can holding on to kindness and community in the face of sheer terror.
A very well written and inspiring book which will be enjoyed by those who like books set in the WWI years.
I’ve not read the earlier four books in the Harper’s Emporium series, I enjoyed this book as a standalone. Having said that, I’d love to read the previous books in this series as well.
