THE WARTIME SISTERS – Lynda Cohen Loigman (out now!)
The perfect mix of women’s fiction and historical fiction.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of historical fiction, and I’m definitely a sucker for anything set in the World War II era. So when I read the synopsis for THE WARTIME SISTERS I was eager to get my hands on it. For those looking for a straight up historical fiction novel, this might not be what you’re expecting – I would classify this as more of a women’s fiction with the historical backdrop.
A good dose of sibling rivalry after sisters are reunited in the Springfield Armory factory during the war. While the focus is the relationship between the sisters, I did enjoy getting a little history lesson on Springfield Armory. I previously worked in a gun shop and Springfield is a very popular brand, so it was fun getting some background information on something I’ve dealt with a lot.
There is some drama throughout but this is the perfect book to curl up with (especially in this kind of weather). I think the author did a fantastic job developing these characters and giving these women depth. The relationships between the women throughout the book felt authentic and their interactions felt genuine. If you’re looking for a great women’s fiction read set in the World War II era, then this will be perfect for you. Those who aren’t fans of historical fiction, don’t shy away from this one!
