Bloomsbury Girls (by Natalie Jenner)

The author does a good job of describing what life was like for women in the 1950s. Sexism is the word of the day and it permeates every aspect of life. There are three primary female characters … Evie, Grace, and Vivian. They are well developed and their struggles to be accepted as vital members of the working class was interesting. The use of Mr. Dutton’s 51 rules for the shop that starts each chapter was a good decision. The author’s inclusion of real life historical figures was appealing and added to the book.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
