Girls on the Line (by Aimie K. Runyan) … well-researched and well-written WWI historical fiction

I am not typically a fan of books about WWI, but this was a great read.  I learned so much about the telephone operators that served both in the U.S and abroad during the war.  The personal stories woven throughout the pages made it a perfect balance.  You will find yourself invested in Ruby and the rest of the “hello girls.”  Their dedication was amazing.  And their willingness and ability to learn new code at a moment’s notice was inspiring.

Having read the author’s previous book, Daughters of the Night Sky, I was excited to read another book of historical fiction.  The author’s research and attention to detail are impressive.  So even if WWI is not your forté, I highly encourage you to read this book.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
