Oh how I loved this book, the first one that I’ve read from this author. It takes place in Maine in 1942, describing the challenges the residents of Atlantic-side communities had to deal with because of German submarine activity, the dire need for good day- care centers because of how many women had to go to work, and the government encouraging reading as a ‘safe’ activity in a time of limited options.

The story centers around four women whose lives intersect when they become part of a spur-of-the-moment book club created by Avis, who doesn’t even like reading (or thinks she doesn’t). As the story unfolds, the club meets, secrets are revealed, difficulties in relationships challenge these women. Many great books are read! It’s quite a list, worth referencing for your next read!
