This is a historical novel centered around 3 young ladies who live in New York during WW2. They all work for the war effort at the Navy Yard. On Saturday nights they get together to knife socks for the men overseas, which includes the brother of one of them.

While there are some interesting war scenes depicted in the book, the book concentrates on the 3 women in New York. Margaret (whose brother John is overseas), Gladys and Dottie (who is engaged to Margaret’s brother John). They are ambitious women who are always striving to reach for more.

As this author always does, history is woven into the story. In this case, it was Easy Company (that took part in the Normandy Landing and Dick Winters, its commander). I was not aware of them, I’m glad I had the opportunity to learn something new.

There’s a little bit of everything: likeable female characters, family ties, romance, war stories, a love relationship by proxy (you’ll have to read it!).

All of Ms Di Maio’s books have strong women. This one was no exception. I always look forward to her books.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an Advance Readers Copy.
