The Wartime Sisters by Lynda Cohen Loigman ARC Review @lyndacloigman @StMartinsPress

The Wartime Sisters has a publication date of January 22, 2019.

Two estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. While one sister lives in relative ease on the bucolic Armory campus as an officer’s wife, the other arrives as a war widow and takes a position in the Armory factories as a “soldier of production.” Resentment festers between the two, and secrets are shattered when a mysterious figure from the past reemerges in their lives.

Though not a typical read for me, I am grateful that the publisher sent me an advanced readers copy because it was such a beautiful story. This story is told from varying views and I found myself easily relating to the younger sister Millie in particular to her choice of a husband. Through the author's writing I, was able to experience the feelings that Ruth and Millie had in such a vivid way, that I often felt as I myself was a part of this well-written story.

This was truly well worth reading and I hope that others take a chance on this story.
