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.
